Week 42: From the hip

Daniel

Things you capture laying in the backyard.

Debbie

I haven’t had much luck with taking any decent shots ‘from the hip’ this week, although I’ve tried hard. From the hip means no setting up or framing of the shot, no looking in the view finder for how it looks or even what you’ve captured. It’s very difficult but also quite liberating. This is about the best of a bad bunch but it kind of appeals to me with its quirky simplicity.

Heading back to the car after a recce of Tumbarumba Hill from the rear. The recently removed pine forest now provides a magnificent backdrop of light in what was once a very dark and broody area. Holding the camera down low provides a different perspective on the view, highlighting the majestic tree which was felled when the path could have been called a vehicle track.

PS. Did you know that Tumba Hill is exactly half the height of Mt Kosciusko?

Melanie

When there is ice cream involved you’ve not got long to get a shot so I was just clicking away hoping I’d get a good one of him and lo and behold I’m pretty happy with this one. Just as he’s pretty happy with the ice cream.

Sharon

My attempts at capturing this boy’s little sister were not at all successful, so I was pleased this shot from the hip worked at all!

Tim

I enjoyed this week’s theme as it gave me a chance to shoot from a range of different angles and just see what worked out… I liked the “dog’s height” point of view here – the world looks quite different from down there!

Week 30: Photographer’s Choice #3

Daniel

It may not look it, but there’s waves beyond that there jagged rock. Good waves too, and judging by the casual yet confident march of this surfer I’m sure he already knows.

Debbie

Spoilt for choice – the photographer on the beach became the photographer’s choice.

Grant

Murwillumbah night sky.

 

Melanie

You can’t visit Murbah without seeing the majestic cloud catcher; just ask Aunty Carol.

Sharon

Sunset. Murwillumbah. Mt Warning with its head in the clouds. Such a special place and a special time together.

Tim

Getting up early on a foggy morning paid off; for once the top of the mountain was visible. The rest of it, maybe not so much…

Week 29: Little

Daniel

Sometimes the littlest things take up the most room in our hearts.

Debbie

It’s the little things in life….Holding your father’s hands may seem a little thing to some but to us, at this particular moment in time, it was huge.

Grant

It’s the little moments that count.

 

Melanie

This week has been a tough and emotional week but the little one has not only joined our family but helped to make the sadness just that little bit more bearable.

Sharon

Brothers Daniel and Chase … spending a little time together with family in the little time Grandad had left.

Tim

From little things…

Week 28: Summer

Daniel

Summer means scorching days, sand too hot to walk on, air con, the Ashes, ice-creams that melt faster than you can eat them. Oh, and the Australian Open of course.

Debbie

Dive into Summer!

Grant

Many summer memories that won’t be forgotten.

Sharon

A great way to spend a summer’s day.

Tim

A wide road, warm light, and a seatbelt buckle hot enough to brand cattle; must be summer…
