Shot some more today, but really want to post this instead. might save what I shot today for later.
Here's Brooke again. This time in an all white studio playing with a single flash and reflector... She wasn't playing with the lighting, we were, she just had to look stunning. More tomorrow.
Strobist Info: One SB900 Speed light on 1/2 power just above and out of shot. It was feathered and bouncing off a Lastolite reflector. I was going for a clam shell effect.

A shot of the Bolte Bridge from Docklands. It's actually quite a nice looking bridge, but nowhere as big as the Westgate bridge, or as scary to drive on. More tomorrow.

Took this from the balcony this morning. There was a procession of dog walkers going around the lake, after several shots of them, which I later found to be less interesting, I looked up and saw this cloud formation in the distance. More tomorrow.

135 - 14/5/12
At the Prince concert tonight. The little man with all the hits was amazing. Although all the smoke machines and mood lights did kill almost all chances of a good shot, I did manage to pull off a few reasonable ones. Here's a great silhouette of the purple one. More tomorrow.

Not long to go before the movie comes out. Got this from the Melbourne show last year... It's an LED light in the shape of a lighter... doesn't really have the same effect of a lighter at a concert, but that's kind of gone away with smoking in pubs hasn't it. More tomorrow.

Pass this clock tower everyday on my way home, and today the clock face just seemed more illuminated than usual. Either they changed the bulb or I've never really paid attention to it. More tomorrow.

As we approach winter here in the southern hemisphere, I can't imagine anything less appealing than getting wet. However thanks to these few brave souls, they also make for pretty exciting shots. Here's one of them. More tomorrow.

One of the best things about the South Melbourne Markets is the variety of food available. We're talking food from all the 4 corners. Here's a simple seafood shack, that sits at the very edge of the markets. Must try it one day, if I can tear myself away from having roast duck and chicken from the Hong Kong food shop. More tomorrow.

Meet little Caleb, he was the guest of honour at dinner tonight at our favourite restaurant. Wanted to try everything, touch everything and generally be a cute little almost 2 year old. More tomorrow.
