Melbourne March 2016 (8 photos)
This is a continuation of the previous post, Charlotte’s Web (1).
Having wandered the streets and lanes of Melbourne at night for a few hours, including being chased away from a potential riverside photography site by some drunkards, it started to rain a little. At the time, we were in a lane and spied a bar, a Scottish bar, The Highlander. It was past 11pm. Rather than end the night, one of our group walked into the bar alone and asked if we could come in and do some photography. The publican was a little hesitant but in came Charlotte and the publican became caught in Charlotte’s web. We were given free reign of the bar. Of course, we bought a few drinks in appreciation of his generosity.
By now, some of what we’d been taught had sunk in and I was a lot more confident with the low light portraiture in difficult conditions.
Charlotte has such a lovely face and manner. She was a great pleasure to photograph.
Again, whilst the group session was great as an introduction, I’d probably seek a one-on-one teaching session if I wanted to learn more. It’s like being part of the paparazzi trying to avoid the other photographers.
But when you do get that “alone” moment …

That’s all for now, folks. I’ll be back with more in a week or two. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
