Photography On A Wet Weekend

What to photograph in crappy weather?
The forecast for this weekend on the Gold Coast is pretty poor. Strong winds, heavy rain coupled with a King Tide
Photographers are known to be light addicted, so what to do when the light / weather is crap?
Here’s one idea:
          Explore your area and shoot through the windscreen!
          These shots are all through the windscreen taken “au natural”
           The camera is positioned on the steering wheel trying to replicate the driver’s eye line, so the       composition is a challenge
           They are pretty much straight out of the camera
           The timing was interesting, trying to get enough rain on the windscreen without making it            an entire blur 

That's one way to pass the weekend!

A Recent Trip to India and Egypt

I am lucky that I get to travel heaps with my job, sometimes to some of the most "bucket listed" places around. I recently did a two week trip to India and Egypt, both places that I have visited before.

A business trip for me is pretty much a series of views out of windows. Airport windows, plane windows, taxi windows, hotel windows and so on. That doesn't necessarily make the trip dull and boring but it does pose some challenges when you want to spend some time photographing.

This is a series of images that I submitted as part of my folio for a Uni assignment. I used what ever was available at the time: phone, iPad or my DSLR, whatever was to hand.
The shots are not always composed well or 100% in focus, but they are interesting and show the cities I travelled in much as I saw them.
