Port Melbourne – Long Exposure Photographs

Port Melbourne

Black and White Long Exposure

Two photos captured in Port Melbourne on a warm but breezy summers evening with photographer Ben Jensz. It’s always fun shooting with Ben as although we’re both interested in the same styles of photography, we always manage to walk away with different shots which is also partly due to him shooting with the beautiful Fuji G617. His landscape photography is stunning and well worth a look.

I’m torn between the two with one taken during magic hour light and another converted to black and white not long after as the sun had hidden below the horizon. It’s interesting how much difference 5-10 minute can make to the scene. I’d been hoping to photograph this location since spotting it when I first arrived into Melbourne on the Spirit of Tasmania. My initial plans were to capture it on blue hour but unfortunately plans quickly changed when the tungsten floodlights lit up the front pylons. Bummer.

    I think the colour shot wins hands down. So much more dynamic!
