Street Photography

Brisbane River

Walking the streets will present many opportunities for photography. In general a 35mm size camera is ideal for street photography and a zoom lens of around 17-70mm will prove to be of great value.
Look for simple uncluttered object to photograph with a clear background to make the main subject stand out.

Architecture Photography

Opera House, Sydney

Architecture can cover both the exterior and interior of buildings. With tall buildings care needs to be taken that the camera is held parallel to the sides of the building to ensure that the building does not have a lean, however this type of perspective distortion can be corrected in Photoshop. Also perspective control lenses are available for some cameras to overcome this type of distortion.
