(Please excuse me for being lazy by writing all of this in one description. It will fit with all the photographs in this series)

These images were taken at Byron Bay Lighthouse, New South Wales, Australia back in 2004. The photographs were shot at night, on a full moon, close to midnight, which is why you can see stars in the sky, a passing ship has its light on, and it also explains the lack of bright reflection on the surface of the ocean. The experimental portraits were taken firing my Sunpak 4500DX flash (handheld), often over and over. Where there are two people (I have deliberately blurred the other person’s face, as a courtesy!) in the image, one of them being me, we had to sit very, very still (difficult for me to do!!) – not smiling (or talking, again hard to do!) as to hold the same smile for an extended period of time can be difficult and if you move your mouth, you get blur. Of course, this explains why those old nostalgic portraits from yesteryear tend to make you think the subjects weren’t that happy! I will also be doing some creative adjustments using Photoshop but will be including that information in the Technical Data.

Hope you like this series!

    Some of your photographs convey beautiful stillness, some surge with energy and motion – this Byron Bay Lighthouse image does both. The warm yellow light in the window cinches this shot’s greatness. Your picture making aside, I admire both your environmental sensitivity and activism, and your admission to a warped sense of humor.

  • Thank you Peter, for your very kind comments! I feel as though I have been paid a wonderful compliment or three!!
    And am very glad that you like my photography, ta Peter! :))
