Retracing My Steps at Heide
Saturday morning I went back to Heide Museum of Modern Art with two clients. It started out looking like a promising day, but then the clouds rolled in and the sun was hidden. It isn’t very often that I am disappointed when this happens, but as we trying to do some landscape type of photography, it meant that the light was too flat.
As I said the sun did shine a little at first. I love the way the morning sun is reflecting off the Rings of Saturn by Inge King. I tried to do more images looking up at the sculpture this time. Where they have it positioned you are meant to look up at it. Unfortunately to get the sculpture and the sun I had to dodge trees as well.
This is the courtyard and main entrance to Heide. The black building is a new part that was built a few years ago. It added a whole new gallery onto the building. Since then they have also redone the cafe area, thought I haven’t been to it yet, hoping I might get a chance this week. There is an exhibition on at the moment that I want to see, Art by Twilight, the art of Louise Bourgeois. I have seen a couple of her pieces, but it would be lovely to see a whole show on her.
In another post I did about Heide someone mentioned that they loved the kitchen garden and had the book on Sunday Reed’s garden. Sunday Reed is famous for many things, but she is especially famous for her gardens. Her kitchen garden is still there and is still looked after and maintained. I don’t know what happens with what is grown in the gardens, though I suspect the cafe gets much of the produce.
I really didn’t take much after this, I found the light just too flat and horrible. It happens like this. My clients took some images, but in the end we decided that we wanted breakfast more.
I haven’t said much about the bag since getting it for Christmas, but I thought it was time to tell you how much I love this bag. I have used it on a number of occasions now and I have not been disappointed. My husband carried it around for me at the Bay Crits. It wasn’t big enough for all of my stuff, but I carried one camera and the other lived in the Tamrac bag until it was needed.
I use it when I go somewhere like the city. I want my camera with me, but the reason for the trip may not be photographic. The camera is easy to get in and out of the bag. It isn’t a pain to use the bag and it sits very comfortably on my bag.
I have put up some more online classes for people wanting to learn Photo Editing. I am trying to organise times that will be fine for people overseas.
I know a lot of you said that you were interested in learning photo editing from me, so if there are other times you would prefer, then let me know and I will see what I can organise.
The Beginners Basics are still available. I’ve been getting some good feedback, so that is great to hear. I am going to be writing some more parts for them as well, more on taking photos in particular circumstances.
I am also wondering if people would be interested in a one off class on HDR images? Let me know.
