Weekend Wanderings: Kinglake and Back
On Friday I had another One on One Photography Session and this time we decided to do some landscape photography. First we headed out to Kinglake to see what we could see.
It has been nice to see the countryside here again, especially as spring is happening all around. The weather has been warm, and that also means the snakes are going to be waking up, so care has to be taken as well.
We were looking at lighting and how it can make your images more interesting. It was getting late in the day and we were able to get some great shots of back lit trees. Also trees that are blossoming with the season.
With spring are also flowers and they were everywhere. Lots of wild ones, well they were growing out in the wild, so I assume they are. They are small, most of the ones we saw, and very beautiful.
We were also looking at how the light was hitting certain things. Breaks through the trees and then the light hits some things singling them out. I love light like that and look for it when I can.
My client also wanted to see Banyule Flats and to do the sunset there. Unfortunately, we didn’t get much of a sunset, but before it set we looked around some of the other places and got the late afternoon sun shining on the trees over the other side. It was so peaceful there and nice to see it in the late afternoon, I don’t tend to go there at that time very often.
I’m out today, escaping to the coast to get some photos. The weather here is getting warm and summer is definitely on the way, unfortunately. I miss winter already, hopefully there will still be some cooler weather. Still I’m looking forward to spending the day with my friend and seeing what we can find to photograph around the coast.
Here are some more photos from Friday. All the photos in this post were processed in Lightroom CC. I hope you are having a good weekend, and you will be going out to take photos as well.
