QVB Sydney

I forget how architecturally brilliant the QVB is. When you see something almost ever day you tend to forget and under appreciate how lovely it is. You see, but you don't really see - if you know what I mean.
One Sunday morning, armed with my camera and a coffee. I decided to take a stroll through this beautiful building. The great thing about walking through the QVB at an early hour is there is little to no crowds- it has a ghost town feel to it. You can take in the beauty of the architecture without bumping into someone or being distracted by shoppers or tourists. I recommend going there at around 8am, also, don't forget to look up.

Wild Roses

Hi Pals,

Below are some photos I shot last week. I collaborated with my fellow Studio Manager - Chelsea. I've wanted to do this shoot for quite some time now and a few weeks back I asked Chelsea's opinion in regards to lighting set ups. Pure chance, she was looking to shoot the same concept, so a collaboration was booked.

While reviewing my images in post, I saw that are some lighting techniques I can improve on next time I am in the studio. Overall, I'm quite happy with these dark and moody photos. And as photography test shoot goes, there are always learnings at the end of it. It was the first time I used strobe lighting (I normally opt for natural light), Chelsea is a brilliant teacher and guided me through the process. I know I can improve that skill from here on end.
