Great Night time Photo Opportunities in the City of Melbourne

Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24mm f1.4 L series lens. Exposure Details: 1/8 second @ f2.8 ISO 1600.

Here’s a very recent image from a winter’s evening photographing at Birrarung Marr in the City of Melbourne. I love the image’s rich gold and red color palette, the strong shapes of the bells and the extra impact given to the image through a low angle of view and the use of line to enhance the illusion of 3-dimensional space.

All light sources in the image are artificial. Spotlights illuminate the bells, from below, and the low-lying clouds reflect light from the city far below.

If you’re interesting in making images like this check out my upcoming Night Photography in the City of Melbourne workshop. Group numbers are limited to make for a friendly, non-competitive environment giving you space to work and plenty of access to your tutor (me) for one-on-one assistance. I hope to see you there.
