    Default 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...

    Sime

    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.
