Paul Pavlinovich19,799This is an informal photowalk after the Digital Show on Saturday Night. From Jeff's Shed we'll wander down to Webb Bridge on the South Side for some bridge and marina evening and night shots then make our way back along Southbank towards Swanston Street. We'll take dinner in the Crown food court. After dinner we'll complete our waterfront stroll along towards Flinders & Swanston where we'll head up around Hamer Hall and The Arts Centre down to NGV where we might play with the windows if they're still on when we get there then we'll finish up for the evening.No route map. No way points. No leaders. No formalities. No give-aways. No competitions. Just a good old fashioned photowalk with friends.Saturday Night River front Crawl and Dinner2013-09-14 17:30:0030G+

Lady Fran W6,795*Your lovely hosts for this event will be:* @112471334785730222439  and @111907656136306657088  The effervescent @112471334785730222439 and I agreed that it is an important part of ANZAC Day to set aside some time to honour and respect all those lives touched by war and conflict. The Dawn Service at the Shrine is a beautiful and moving tribute to those who gave so much. Getting out of bed at a horrible hour, on what is normally a chilly April morning, is the very least of what we can do to pay our respects.  Following the somber tribute in the morning, we agreed that the call of coffee will be strong, and the need for food second most to that, and then ... the photographer in us all will be screaming to get out. Soooooo, we thought that we would plan a bit of a photowalk. The idea is as follows:  *Dawn - Service and sorrow* _6:00pm service_ This part of the morning will be purely about respect. This is not a photo opportunity, but a moment of reflection. Until the _Last Post_ and formal ceremony is complete, please avoid pulling your camera out. If you really can't hold back, then please arrange to get in early and capture the moment in private prior to the ceremony. The Shrine, the eternal flame, and the surrounding areas will be open and manned from very early.  *Meet up* _6:30am +/-_ ie after completion of the service 'Blue fountain' Corner of St Kilda Road and Southbank Blvd  Map ref: http://goo.gl/ClkBX *Coffee and feasting* _7:30am_ Following the dawn service, the intention is to hop a tram to Port Melbourne for a caffeine hit, and a hearty breakfast.  A table has been booked at _Cafe Zest_ for 7:30am  http://cafezest.webs.com/apps/location/ *Cameras at the ready* Once we are full charged, and our spirits a little higher, the intention is to spend the morning around Station and Princes Piers practicing some of our recent learning from the two ND/GND and long exposures events. Pack a tripod, filters, or any gear you want. A hat if the sun is looking like showing (someone, who shall remain nameless, did not do this last Saturday and may or may not have worn a microfibre cloth on ones head ... rumour has it ...), sunscreen etc. You know the routine.  _*EXECUTIVE SUMMARY*_ _Option A_ - Dawn Service > Meet > Breakfast (Port Melbourne) > Piers _Option B_ - Dawn Service > Meet > Breakfast (City) > Parade Please do not hesitate to invite others you feel may be interested. ANZAC Day Photowalk2013-04-25 05:30:0022G+
Paul Pavlinovich19,799Join us for another anniversary walk with all the usual and plenty of new faces from the Melbourne Photowalkers community.Walk starts and finishes at Collingwood Station. Food is available at The People's Market (expect to be there around 3pm) and after the official walk end at back near the town hall many of us will continue to the The Retreat Hotel for dinner and  beer.Here is the route https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=212211852192101909727.0004d81878e69719df99d&msa=0&ll=-37.803952,144.990327&spn=0.016598,0.033023It's not as long as it looks. Note I've changed the times to ensure we can get into The People's Market which is absolutely brilliant.We'll be going past loads of laneways with amazing street art which are not marked on the route (a few are). If you want to make your walk longer feel free to diverge down the laneways.Suggestions:. There is an urbex site - use commonsense and make your own choices. Down the laneways travel in at least pairs - this is a fairly dodgy place sometimes - this means you Margaret Wong!Google Anniversary Photowalk *COLLINGWALK*2013-03-23 03:00:0054G+

I intend (if I'm not too rooted) to visit a few other attractions up the other end of the city including the torchlight tours of Melbourne Museum. There are extended public transport options in and out of the city on the night.White Night2013-02-23 09:00:0036G+

They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-06-24 04:26:49170405CC G+

They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-02-24 12:13:22162609CC G+

Charles Strebor (Rantz)8,203#GreenoderOrange - it's Purple!During the last month of last year (the one that is just finishing somewhere in the world), I tossed a ball.  Every day.  Then I caught it (well... not always).  And then I made a photo of it.  And then all of the people in this circle guessed what colour it would be on the next toss.  Postcards were sent - some have already been received, more are on the way.If you wish to have a wonderful community of people around you in 2013, I highly commend these people to you - fun, fun, fun. And smart.  And witty.  And obscure. And and...Have a grand 2013 - may it be all you wish it to be.#letsinteract #circleshare  #GoodPeople  2013-01-01 00:46:25211609CC G+
Stuart Dyckhoff10,589The Less than 5K Photog CircleThis is a circle I curate and randomly re-share. My aim, as one of the still small time followership (though improving), is to give others that have less than 5K followers a chance for some more exposure. To give them that leg up that I had to hunt and peck and sometimes beg for. Don't get me wrong - these folks all deserve the extra recognition and I don't pretend that this will rocket anyone past the 5K follower mark, but it's a start.That said, I am promoting two today to my ex-under 5k circle and now +Dana Allen and +Lauren Moss will have to find another patron :) I am also happy to report that well over a third of this circle have greater than 4k followers which was not something when I started this.How do I get in?Well there is very little criteria to be in this other than ...• you must have less than 5,000 folks following you. If you are near this mark then you need to consider the circles promoted by +Gene Bowker +Charles Lupica +Peter From +Rinus Bakker +Margaret Tompkins and other G+ members that help champion the uner acknowledged artists.• Any photographers must be active and must share mostly their original work.• Sharing this announcement or the circle isn't required - but it is appreciated and it helps you.• the circle will never be bigger than 75 members.Why does Re-Sharing the circle matter?We won't all be being followed by the same people so sharing spreads the word and helps for you to be seen by different folks. If only one person from your followers picks up the circle then everyone in the circle gains a follower - multiply that by 65 and you can see how your follower count will soon grow.(My thanks to +Gene Bowker for the original wording this is based on)Would you like to be in the next version of this circle?1) Be sure to comment here - if I hit 75 then you'll be on a first come waiting list.2) Be active.

Circles in Circles

Last night I went on an adventure to find a field in the middle of nowhere to get some decent star photos. I had a lens to put through its paces and was craving the chance to get some milky way shots as it's been a while. Kidnapping some friends along the way to bring along for the drive, we ended up in places such as Mt Macedon, and Heathcote while I quested for the stars.

Towards the end I decided to finish off the night with some star trails while my friends slept in the car, so I left my camera open for 30 minutes and lay back to watch the milky way above. I may have seen a couple of shooting stars while I was at it.

I'm feeling a little wrecked now as I didn't get home until about 6:45am. But I thought I'd share one of the last images I got for the night. Especially as I've been a bit inactive lately.

Headshots of AVcon

So the other weekend I dropped over to Adelaide for the purpose of going to the Anime and Videogame Convention AVcon. It was a chance to catch up with friends, meet new people, and have a bit of a holiday. Along the way I took a few photos, though a lot less than usual.

I thought it could be interesting just to get headshots of the people I did take photos of though, because honestly, who wants to see the Whole Cosplay ;)

Eureka Tower

From the heights of this building, you can get an amazing view of the docklands Fireworks through July and August, you can also look down on the CBD with a different view. Everything looks toylike from up there.

Gothic
The City almost called Batville

The other evening Melbourne was shrouded in fog and low cloud. She was definitely a dark and brooding city, just the way I love her. The streets and river take on a gothic beauty on nights like those.

New Print for My Walls

Courtesy of a visit to +Dots To Spots Printing, I ordered a 48 Inch wide canvas print of one of my panoramas. Taken at Chinese New Year in Sydney, this image looks incredibly good on my kitchen wall.

In the interests of Size Comparison, that's a full sized Katana hanging above it. Usually it isn't there, but I thought it would help to get an idea of the size of the print. I can't do it justice as a photo of a photo, but I'm definitely happy to have this one on my walls.


As previously asked, if you feel like helping me in my quest to work out what else belongs on my wall, see the post here.

Dropped by +Dots To Spots Printing this evening to pick up this print. A 48" by 18" cavas wrap.

Looks amazing. A wall shot with something to scale once I work out which wall to put it on.

So. I have a problem, and YOU can Help.

It has come to my attention that I do not have enough (read, currently one) photos on my walls. I'm thinking of doing some big prints to make up for this. But I don't know what photos to use.

This is where you lot come in. I've put together an album that has some of my images, ones that I like or that have gotten a lot of attention, and I would like some help picking amongst them.

Rules are simple, +1 or Comment to show which you prefer. Or if there's one you've seen that isn't here, link me to it and I'll consider adding to the list.

If I get enough help, I'll consider giving a print away just because I can.

A slightly different perspective of the Block Arcade. Looking straight up.

I really think I need to find somewhere that's pretty much full symmetry at some point to do this with.

Tunnel of Sparks

I'm not sure who was spinning, myself or +Paul Pavlinovich. I think it was Paul. We were out with a bunch of awesome people to do help +Matthew Pavlinovich with a project.

Victorian State Library
La Trobe Reading Room

If I were to consider any building a bit of a religious experience, it would probably be this one. The State Library is one of those places that just has an air to it that sings to me. I still can't do it justice in photos, though I think I'm getting better at catching it.

Tonight's late night Fish Photo brings you
The Block Arcade

I bought a fisheye to use if for astro photography. An f2.8 circular fisheye picks up a lot of light. But knowing that I have a bit of a predisposition against wide angle distortion, I thought that I would stretch myself by using it for some architecture and other shots. Here's one of the results

(Only because I haven't worked out how to get it perfectly even for completely overhead shots.)

Five Day Quest
Day One

So I got tagged by +Ki van Wessel in the Five Day Quest. I was kinda hoping I could sit this one out, but it appears not.

I was going to post this yesterday, the first day, but unfortunately my internet was out until from just before I got home until just before. I went out to catch up with some awesome people while +Charles Strebor was down from Darwin. So I think I'll tag him to take part.

Candles

On Bourke Street in Melbourne, one of the restaurants has some really interesting candle enclosures. Every now and then when walking past I can't help but take photos of them.

Last night rather than doing the sane thing and sleeping, I decided to play with a macro studio setup that I was given. I didn't get the lighting quite how I wanted it, and could have done with another light in my opinion, but I thought it was a decent first attempt.

Macro, product photography, and small scale studio is one of those areas where I could do with a bit of work. I'm quite happy working with proper scale studio lighting, but macro has been eluding me, so I thought it's about time that I stretched myself a little.

A while back I got to catch up with +Justin Thornley and some others for a day of board games with the intention of going out shooting that night. The subject, his absolutely awesome looking bike.

We ended up getting asked by security if we could move on, but first I showed an awesome young man how to set up lighting to take photos of shiny objects, and got one or two good shots myself. So here's one of them to take a break from stars.

And now for a photo that's slightly out of the ordinary. The tones of the individual stars are a little more obvious like this as well.

The Night's Eye

While the thought of star trails was cool when I set out, what I really wanted to get was some Milky Way photos. And the night definitely did deliver. After a first attempt at Mt Macedon Memorial (Photos to come) we headed for points north.

Eventually I found a spot that seemed deserted and flat enough to try to get the whole night. But I just could not take a photo without a car or truck going by as I did. Even though we were hours from Melbourne

Circles in Circles

Last night I went on an adventure to find a field in the middle of nowhere to get some decent star photos. I had a lens to put through its paces and was craving the chance to get some milky way shots as it's been a while. Kidnapping some friends along the way to bring along for the drive, we ended up in places such as Mt Macedon, and Heathcote while I quested for the stars.

Towards the end I decided to finish off the night with some star trails while my friends slept in the car, so I left my camera open for 30 minutes and lay back to watch the milky way above. I may have seen a couple of shooting stars while I was at it.

I'm feeling a little wrecked now as I didn't get home until about 6:45am. But I thought I'd share one of the last images I got for the night. Especially as I've been a bit inactive lately.

Olinda Falls

Here's another shot from my explorations up at Olinda Falls. This is one of the upper tiers of the lower falls. I got a little off the beaten track again.

I dragged myself out of bed on Saturday after a late night playing with my new phone to go up into the hills and teach. Fortunately for me, the location was pretty awesome, so it wasn't a hard day. I even got some photos I like, though I'm still paranoid I've missed a leech somehow.

Here's one of the shots I got once I climbed off the path.

In Reflection
Franz Josef Glacier

I thought I'd go through some of my favourite photos in amongst posting new stuff, so here's my personal favourite at the moment. Taken at Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand, this is the print that I want massive on my wall. Still have to find the funds to justify it, but sooner or later I'm going to get this printed at a humongous size on metallic paper and mounted on aluminium. 

I think it's a pretty good sign that you like something you've done when you're willing to hang it on your own wall. Though I'm certain I'd be happy to hang it on someone else's wall too if I was asked. Wink Wink

New Zealand was a lovely place though. And I definitely need to go back at some point. Maybe after some of the other places on my list.

Been ages since I shared anything so here's a bit of something from tonight. Nothing particularly special, but I thought I'd better get back in the habit of posting again now that I've got my camera back and repaired.

Photographic Memory

Lately I've had to rely on my memory rather than a camera. Mine was in for repairs. I finally got a verdict, Olympus Australia and Japan were both stumped as to the cause, but they've repaired it. I got my camera back today.

I need to come up with an alternate strap method than relying on the D-Ring for it though on recommendation from them. I think I've worked out something, but that'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Meanwhile, I think the planning of shots over the last few weeks is going to pay off. Stay tuned. There will be activity on the photo front.

Anyway, here's something from the phone that suits.

Observatory Hill

I need to go back to this spot and do it proper justice. A flimsy travel tripod, and being a little distracted meant that I missed the best time to get this panorama and got it a bit late.

I'm going to be diving through my much older archives to see what fresh eyes can find. It could be interesting or could result in nothing. I do know that I definitely am feeling the desire to travel again though.

The Best Camera is the one you have On You
Still a pretty poor substitute when all you have is a phone

Feeling the camera withdrawals fairly strong today. Especially as I happen to be near a waterfall and such.

The Australian Olympus Imaging repair centre staff are pretty decent to deal with.

There's just one problem... I'm currently without a camera. And could be for a while. I hate my luck with cameras sometimes. Especially when it wasn't my fault.

Sitting Pretty

Macro is not something I'm the best at, but when I get the chance to, I'm often fascinated with what subjects you can find.

As is though, some people wouldn't consider this on the macro scale because it doesn't dominate the screen. I think it would look awesome on Canvas though, any takers interested in getting a print?

White Night Flinders

Last Night in Melbourne, was the Second Annual White Night. From 7pm through to 7am the city was alive with art exhibitions, light displays and projections, and all manner of things to entertain the mind and sustain the body.
The projections on Flinders Street Station were pretty impressive, and this was one of the sequence at around 5am.

Now, I think sleep may be in order for those that attended, Definitely is for me. I hope you had fun if you did go.

Flinders Fireworks

I don't really feel like I've created anything inspiring in the last few months. Just getting photos I think have potential seems to be in short supply. I keep taking photos of the same things every time I get out, or that's how it feels.

On the other hand. I did manage to get this photo of Chinese New Year Fireworks over part of Flinders street a while back

Stone Silent Superman

Stone Silence are an awesome group of buskers in Melbourne's CBD. I managed to get a shot of one of the member's secret identity during a moment where everyone had Blinked. Seconds later it was as if that moment had never happened.

I have a habit when I'm processing my photos of ending up with things that show detail, and have a little bit of punch. So I was looking through some photos from the weekend and thought I'd try processing one as low contrast.

I wasn't happy with it. So I then brought up a bunch of detail, and then went a step further and brought back contrast.

I know which one I prefer, but I thought I'd ask for some feedback. The thing I've taken from this is that it can be a bit hard to stretch boundaries when your result isn't to your tastes. I think I'm going to need to revisit this low contrast concept at a future date

Girl in the Rain

Yesterday wasn't the best of days. But it redeemed itself when I had to go out shooting for something and came across this. After getting back in a centered headspace through photography I was able to fix the problem that had me feeling like hell too.

Vantage Points

I could probably remove all the slight distractions in this photo. The boats, the girl, the piece of cardboard, even the shoes. (Try and spot them all) butthey were part of the scene, so I'm not going to. It was a quite nice spot to spend twilight though. Even though sunset itself disappointed.
