There is a whole lot of activities and entertainment, a good family day out especially during the school holidays.

I was lucky to acquire a new lens .. a Canon EF 75 – 300mm Zoom!

So off I went, and tip toed through the tulips

Here is the video I made with the colourful images I took on the day. What a way to show off the colour and the displays!

A Winter Night in Melbourne ~ Night Photography Excursion

Learn Digital Photography Part 4 – Night Excursion to Melbourne Sunday 21st August 2016.

Check out the night by watching this video, and subscribe to my tube tube channel if you like..

We are quite an adventurous bunch. Yes the weather in Melbourne can change every five minutes, as we already had this date booked for our outing.

Rain, Rain brrr cold, but we did it anyway.. we travelled to Melbourne for a shoot, all the way from The Basin Community House.

I have always wanted to get out in the rain and shoot, usually it is a deterrent, but in this case, well the rain really played a role in the spectacular photos we got!

Rain, Hail or Shine!!

First thing is first … coffee.

We were all set now for our adventure!

Here is the group – Photo By: Sandy P.

And we were off!!

Look — Its a lady wearing a strawberry hat! Hang on .. that’s me!  Cheers Marisa for the photo, its so colourful!

I have always wanted to do a night shoot in Melbourne, so I am so impressed with my results!

Melbourne, we love you!

So the 8 of us all dispersed as we found so many interesting photos to take. We made our way from Southgate, past Crown Casio continued on to the Melbourne Convention Centre  until me landed at the Webb Bridge, Docklands.

Spectacular! The Rain really set things off, the reflections.. well absolutely beautiful.

My passion for photography and teaching will never diminish… nights like this is a true pleasure!!

Thank you all who came out on Sunday night, a wintery one at that!

It was worth it for the results.

Thank you for viewing

Digital Photography Part 2 Excursion to Flinders Street, Melbourne with Bron Flutterby

25th June 2016

What an adventure!

The first time I took this bunch out for an excursion the destination – Flinders Street.

I have always loved Melbourne, it is such a buzzing place each time I visit.

How exciting for my class to venture out from The Basin Community House, together as a group. Impressed they were as they longed for an outing with the purpose just to take photos.

I have so many great photos from the day. The class had a ‘Scavenger Hunt’ to complete, and applied their new skill sets and perceptive’s learnt during the course so far.

This time my mission -I started off just with the 55mm Kit Lens and my Canon 60D  – then decided to go  with the ‘Nifty 50’ mm Canon Lens – so the challenge for me was the composition as I am so used to my Zoom lens.

Ideas- they seem to just happen. I got down low for many of the photo’s which you will see – from a different point of view.

Time for my photography class to put into action what they have learnt so far –

Shutter Speed, Aperture, Composition, Black & White, Reflections, Texture & Patterns, Light Behaviour.

So much excitement in the air as the class was eagerly taking photos of all the surrounds.

I was happy with so many photo’s, and I am sharing my experience with you, through the eyes of Bron Flutterby.

Enjoy!

CREEP – Bastian Killjoy -Music Video #GollyGosh

I am delighted to bring to you the freshness –

‘Creep’ Music Video is single release of the upcoming album ‘Golly Gosh.’

Bastian Killjoy is a producer, emcee and soul creator his next album which will be released in July 2016.

This independent music video started as an idea, being the 6th Film clip I have co directed and produced the challenge being to make it even better than the ones before!

About the house ..this is what we came up with .. Make sure your speakers are turned up!

I really enjoyed the whole process with this music video, it was fun to try out some special effects tricks in Adobe After Effects.

‘The rapturous Melbourne based producer/ emcee has modelled his latest works around his earliest Hip Hop, Rap and R&B influences, many being from the early 90’s. With production styles that recognise artists of the 70’s and 80’s, in a time when musician’s recorded/ produced and mixed their albums, utilising their own skills. Which is precisely what Bastian has done with his latest masterpiece ‘Golly Gosh’ entirely produced by himself.’

Reflections & Transparency

LEARN DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY WITH BRON FLUTTERBY @ THE BASIN COMMUNITY HOUSE – TERM 2 – 2016

As time passes so quickly, I realise it has been a little while since I have posted.

It is because I have been so busy this term .. I reflect …

I have had 35+  students per week this term, eagerly learning how to use their camera’s and the art of photography.

– I will break it down –

2 x Digital Photography Basics Part 1  (20 new beginners)

1 x Digital Photography Part 2 Class

1 x Photoshop Basics Part 1 Class

Total – 4 Classes.

It had been thrilling to say the least to see all of you come a long way – your learning and application of new skills has been admirable!

I am glad my enthusiasm and passion rubs off on you all – this is turn is very heart warming for me 🙂

I have a lot more to post, and a lot more to write about – there is so many exciting things happening!

Here are some photos taken during the class just last week, as out topic was Reflections & Transparency, always a favourite of mine, as we notice all the little things – the visual world unfolds for all the flutterby’s!

Skyhigh with Bron Flutterby

Last night, I took a couple of my Digital Photography students up to the top of Mt. Dandenong. Skyhigh Observatory , and these are the photos. They have not been at all adjusted, just resized for web.

This is the view …

So many timesI have visited this spot, as it is very local to where I live in The Dandenog Ranges.

Every time I visit, I experience so many different weather conditions, the city stays the same, but it is the weather that really plays a role in creating amazing night views.

Thanks for viewing,

B
