City at Night

17 Feb

Tonight I had the chance to photograph a couple of well known local icons.  The first is Wrest Point Casino, Australia’s first legal Casino.

The second is the fountain in Franklin Square, fondly known locally as Franko.  It was a photo opportunity to grab while it’s there as the fountain does not always operate at night.  I was inspired recently by another local photographer who takes magical photos Wilkography.

As I didn’t have a tripod with me I had to improvise by placing my camera on the back of the seats and on the ledge of the water bubbler.  They may not be the perfect exposure or composition but I did manage to get the blurry water effect that I was after by experimenting with 5 – 15 second exposures.

The camera on fully auto grabbed a pretty decent shot for a point and shoot effort too.

We then had some fun with our phone flash lights.

Suffice to say, watch out Franko, we will be back.
