We feature some examples of his work here.
|Mystery Bay, NSW|
|Albert – I’m into landscapes and it’s a constant challenge to find interesting foregrounds and backgrounds, coupled with something else interesting or dynamic so that the scene is not static and 2-dimensional. I like this photo because it has some interesting shapes, the waves give good action, and the looming clouds trying to cover up clear sky gives the photo a dose of mood. I think it’s a good combination of many pleasing factors.This photograph was taken with a Canon 5D Mark2 with a 17-40mm lens.|
|Flowers, Bowral, NSW|
|Albert – I took this photograph in Bowral last year. It is a special one for me, as it was the first shot I took using a 1977 Hasselbald camera, which I had acquired from a collector friend of mine. The shot reminds me of the nervousness of taking the “new” camera into the field, trying to work out all the finer details in the manual, as well as trying to focus using a 6’x6’ glass screen at waist level and applying enough pressure to the shutter. All of that were new challenges and amazingly, I managed to compose the shot fairly well, and the colours and background blur turned out very nicely.Taken with a 1977 Hasselblad 2000FC, with a 80mm lens.|
|Albert – I took this photo when I was travelling in Japan last year. It tells the story of a bygone era, where the family used to gather around the fire after dinner and enjoy its warmth. The head of the family (closest to us) has the benefit of a footrest to allow him to sit a bit closer and have a bit extra warmth, while his wife sits to his right in order to serve tea. His children sit opposite him, next to the screen so that the smoke can teach them discipline.I like this photograph because of the story behind the scene, and that the smoke really highlights the light coming through a top window, making it a special shot.Taken with a 1967 Rolleiflex 3.5T with a 75mm lens.|
