This is an image from a series of portraits I took of my then 87 year old grandfather. He is about to turn 90 in September. I wanted for this portrait to speak something about his character and personality, whilst evoking emotion from his demeanour and the varying shades of window light.
I took this un-posed image of my son Liam down at the beach one morning. He climbed onto a rock shelf and his silhouette suddenly presented itself. It is perhaps the most favourite image I’ve taken. One aspect I’m unsure about is how to best crop the image. I’ve already cropped slightly (the original is a fraction higher and a tiny bit wider) but am reluctant to lose more of the sky and not sure how to deal with the dark foreground.
I had been waiting to board the ferry for hours and decided to take some photos. The front of the ferry was open and reminded me of a giant mouth ready to swallow everything.
This image was taken at Orrorol Campground in the Namadgi National Park south of the ACT. My eyes were attracted by the moss covered rocks, the bark on the trees and the road disappearing into the early morning fog.
COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.
‘Fog on hills’ is a good example of why you shouldn’t be afraid to crop your photographs when they need it.
