365:2010 – February Highlights

In Uncategorized by pauldwade / March 17, 2010 / 0 Comments

Catch up post number two, it got a bit tougher to get the inspiration on some days in the second month which was a bit of a worry as there’s 10 more to go! However every day I still managed to find something to photograph. Here are my favourite images from 365:2010 in Feb:

Stir Stick Flower

This collection of drink sticks looked like some blossoming wooden flower, taken at work with my iPhone.


Beautifully colourful range of pastels on display in an art store, taken with my iPhone.


Loved the lighting and that they’re all heading in a different direction with the heel of their back leg off the floor, taken with my iPhone and converted using PS Mobile.

Shooting a friend

Marc 3

I got the chance to take some photos of a friend of mine the other weekend. Marc has a great body and is confident enough to get naked in front of the camera. The photos were taken with natural light, a spot lamp and another, secret weapon which produced some great colour images.

It’s the first time I’ve done a photoshoot like this in years and hope to do more in the future, check out the full set at Flickr. If you’re in the Sydney area and are interested in me taking images of you just contact me.

Time for a catch up

Well it’s been a while and my attempts to blog regularly have failed miserably….oh well, things and people to do! It’s been a busy few months photo wise……

Chunky Montage

I’ve done the shoot for a couple of dance parties run by the Harbour City Bears called ‘Chunky’. The posters have been used in various bars and on the streets to promo the events in January and April.

Mardi Gras came and went at the end of February as quick as it always does. Again I got a media pass this year and took images from the pre-parade setup and the parade itself. The weather was kind and it was another successful and fun night.

For Easter this year I visited Auckland and the Tongariro National Park in New Zealand for the long weekend. Stunning scenery and  gorgeous weather helped to make a great, relaxing weekend.

I finally got myself a film scanner so I could scan the negatives from a black and white course I did a year or so ago. My favourites from that course are a series of images I took with a friend of mine called Carlos. Definitely would like to pursue this sort of photography more.

And finally I paid my first visit to Canberra over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend recently. Visited the Australian War Memorial (above) and Parliament House. The main reason for the visit was the Vanity Fair Portraits exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, had to treat myself to a $120 book from the exhibition full of stunning photographs, would love to be able to produce those sorts of images at some point. However if you don’t like the cold you don’t visit Canberra in the winter!
