Finally took the Bronica RF 645 out again, this time for a fun afternoon of shooting at an abandoned apartment block in Melbourne’s North. Unfortunately, most of the apartments were boarded up and the doors screwed shut. I was able to make it into a couple of them, but they were largely vacant and pretty smelly.
I took out the trusty Bronica RF 645 and a roll of Portra 400 as well as a roll of expired T-Max 400 to see how both films would fare. While I'm in no way a decent landscape photographer some of the shots came out OK.

The old saying goes a picture tells a thousand words. Its hard to capture the full story in one photograph however some of the best images capture a hint of it. A photograph tells you a lot about the person who clicked the shutter.
This is the sort of advice I wish I had been given years ago! Spending time developing your skills shooting faces, expressions and gestures while not wussing out shooting backs definitely makes better street photography. Your photographs are richer, more interesting and connect with your audience much better. This short guide will help you overcome the fear!
I grew up in Ballarat and since moving away, I always try to make it back home to explore. This photo series covers the sights, nooks, crannies and hot spots that make up this oddball heritage listing obsessed town. There's some street, some urban, some documentary and landscape in an effort to give you a glimpse of Ballarat from my point of view.
This short project was shot over a few weekends at the famous and during the summer months often crowded Torquay Surf Beach. It examines this beautiful location's appeal to local, tourist and weekender alike through exposing the surf and sun culture mixed with documenting the crowds on the beach street style. It was shot entirely on a plastic fantastic Olympus 35mm point and shoot loaded with cheap Fujifilm Superia XTRA 400 film.
I recently received a little known camera from Japan, the Olympus OZ10 point and shoot. Continuing my obsession with point and shoot film cameras I picked this little plastic fantastic up for the $AUD equivalent of a Red Bull and a meat pie. It’s little beauty and a true hidden gem of the Olympus compact line of the mid-1990s

There are literally thousands of spots in Melbourne that the city's street photographers hit each and every day. But, it's a great start and hitting these locations once or twice on a trip will give you a pretty good taste of Melbourne's colourful characters, more than enough to get a few choice street shots.
