It doesn’t get any better than this….Sydney Opera House

Hi everyone,

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written a post. Life has been so, so busy. My husband and I have had a sea change! We’ve moved out of Sydney down to the Illawarra and are living right by the sea!! It is quite simply, the best thing we’ve ever done 🙂

On Tuesday I was up in Sydney conducting a night photography tour and took this black and white photo of the Opera House and city from Kirribilli on the northern side of the Harbour.

I stood and stared at this scene before I took the shot. The Opera House gets me every time – especially at night – it is just such an architectural masterpiece:)

For those of you who are photographers – this shot was taken on my new Canon 5d Mark IV and the 24-105mm L series lens. The settings were ISO 400, F18, 25 sec.

What do you think of the shot in black and white? I’d love to hear your comments below:)

Until next time,

Chris 🙂

Photo of the day….The Big Issue

I love black and white photography. Its ageless.

I love the tones, the contrast and the way the ‘story’ of the photograph isn’t always immediately obvious.

This shot was taken on the streets of Tokyo, Japan.

I’m a huge John Lennon fan, so was quick to notice his face on the front of the magazine.

The ‘Big Issue’ was commemorating the 30th anniversary of Lennons death.

It really is one of my favourite photos…I hope you like it too… 🙂

So, tell me, what do you love about black and white photography?

I would really love to know….Leave your comments below or connect with me on Facebook or twitter 

Photo of the day…The Empire State Building – classic black & white

The Empire State Building New York. Classic. Iconic. Well photographed.

This shot was taken from a boat on The East River on a cold winters day.

Black and white photography is timeless and ageless. It goes hand in hand with architectural photography.

A client purchased this print from me to hang as pride of place in her home.

I could sit and look at this shot all day long…. 🙂
