Melbourne ... winter ... night.

Weddings and family portraits are shiny. They are bright. The photos that my wedding and portrait clients like best are ones that emphasis the joy of life. This is great but it can influence your work overall. When I'm shooting photojournalism projects often fall into shiny, happy mode, and can overlook the darker, perhaps more interesting side of a portrait or scene. To help with this I deliberately venture out to find more shadow or grunge or colour shifts. Here's an example - some street work during the cold Melbourne winter.
