As part of a personal project I ventured out to photograph two notable examples of modern architecture in Adelaide: the Convention Centre, and the Medical Research Institute. In between we happened on the Jeffrey Smart Building at Uni SA, so made a shot there. All three images were made on the venerable Nikon D3 camera, now over 10 years old, and only 12 megapixels. The lens was the Nikon PC-E 24mm tilt shift lens, hand held at full shift, shot at f11.
We went to Bone Gully in Kuitpo Forest south of Adelaide recently, specifically to shoot on Hasselblads: the relatively old H4D40 digital camera and the much older 500CM film camera, loaded with Kodak Portra 400. Twelve shots on the roll, one roll only. Focussing this camera is quite difficult, it has no autofocus, no auto exposure, no auto anything. No electronics, no battery. When I got the film back I found that 6 shots were a little out of focus, the other six were good. I did not shoot tight enough, so the resultant scanned images have been cropped in Lightroom, no other changes made.
A short video
If you saw my last post, you will know that I visited Brownhill Creek with Sophia Anna and shot some still photographs. We also shot a small amount of video, testing a different video setup. Here is my edit:

The Woman in Black
I went out to Brownhill Creek on a not too warm spring morning with the wonderful Sophia Anna, primarily to shoot with the blooming wattle, but also to test some video gear, and use a black cloak I’ve had for a while.
The video was not wonderful, but useful in learning some limitations of the equipment. The stills photography was much more successful. Here some images of Sophia in black.

Shoot with Amy Caldwell
We were lucky enough to have a shoot with Amy Caldwell at Heywood Park in Hyde Park Adelaide. Lucky also in that the weather cooperated and gave us the big softbox sky rather than the usual blowtorch Adelaide summer sun. For this shoot we borrowed some clothes from Coltish Boutique on King William Road: the Daisy Royale Top from Dasha the Label, and the Venice Wrap skirt. The colours matched Amy’s red hair and the greens and browns of the park perfectly. As another outfit we paired the Daisy Royale top with Minkpink’s Mandala Wonderpants, and obtained an image which I can call the Heart and Soul of Boho.
