  • Melbourne, australia | photo walk

    Howdy,

    After the awesome photowalk in London, UK... I've decided to go ahead and organise a walk in Melbourne.

    We're looking at July / August at this point in time.

    It would be great to get some feedback on the following...
    • Not where, but what you'd like to photograph
    • What time of day is best?
    • If we stop for food, lunch or dinner?
    • Can someone pop the kettle on? I need coffee!

    Let me know your thoughts...

    Hi Sime
    The best time I think for photographing the city of Melbourne is at dusk. The lighting is fantastic. Especially at sunset too on the Yarra River with the city lights reflecting onto the water. Also near the Casino where the flames shoot up at night.
    Some really great buildings and lanes in the city. And parks.
    Hope to go on your tour

        Hi Sime

        Great idea! The city and surrounding suburbs (Carlton, Richmond, Sth Melbourne) are always good. Otherwise around St Kilda is interesting as you have the beach, interesting buildings and people.

        Look forward to hearing other ideas and what the final plans are.

            Hi there,
            I'm really interested in this, but being new to Melbourne I don't really know too many locations. I prefer photographing later in the day/evening, so dinner would make sense.

                I'd love to come along. Dusk is always a beautiful time to shoot no matter where you are. And as long as the walk isn't centered around taking photos of graffiti, I'll be there.

                  I am all for this (I work in the middle of the city) but this is a really ordinary time of year weather-wise.

                  The way things are going with the weather you're going to need flippers and a wet suit .

                    good point.

                    risk is reasonable that we'd either have to reschedule or put cameras in plastic bags...

                    but then, it has been a pretty wet summer! maybe we've had our share of wet stuff for the year.

                      I was in Melbourne 2 weekends ago with my camera. Ended up with about 200 photos. posted some on my flikr site, straight out of the camera.

                        I suggest you do not go out in bright day light. Because that can spoil your picture. Go ahead 2 hours before sunset. I think that's the best moment.

                          Hi,

                          Wondering if there is any progress on getting some dates together for a walk in our wonderful city. There will be 2 of us coming whenever it can be arranged, hopefully before any serious rain heads our way.

                          Weather has really been pretty good so far and hoping it will continue until at least after the walk!

                            Melbourne Photo Walk

                            Hi All Respondants to the Melbourne Photo Walk suggestion.

                            It has been helpful scanning your "planning" discussions. I am visiting Melbourne from evening of 15th April to the 20th April. If anyone is around and have plans to go out and take photos - I would welcome the opportunity to join you. Any chance to learn from professional photographers and see your city from the eye of my Lenz is most welcome. I am a novice- 5D Mark11 and a 105mm Lenz, visiting from South Africa. It really is a pity that your walk is planned for later in the year-. I hope there is less rain during my stay.

                            Regards
                            Praths

                              G'day mates.

                              I am living in Melbourne, I am studying English.

                              A few weeks ago I bought my very first DSLR camera, a Nikon D3100. I have been playing with my camera but it would be helpful if someone with more experience can give good tips to take nice pictures of this great city.

                              Cheers.
