My last photoshoot, and my best attempt at long exposure photography, and perhaps my very best results so far. The first two photographs, one being a photograph of a shaky 30 second shutter-speed shot and the other a revised car trail long exposure; both meant to represent the busyness, activity and life that Wellingtonians maintain to serve food on a plate. The revised car trail depicts the pace of motion that Wellington moves at, where I can’t really keep up. The first photograph depicts the change in tone, tension and stress, as you don’t need to look far for a change of scenery. The rest represent Turangawaewae, my place of standing; the Waterfront. It serves to me as a place of reflection and relaxation, a change of scenery, and a place of connection, just as the rivers of Kerikeri served me. It is also a poetic nod of respect towards the life and nature that is to be found underneath the rumbling of car motors and blips of intersections, and is the part of Wellington that reminds me of home. I’ve chosen a blend of colours that contrast and merge to anchor the viewers point of focus. Like Xavier Rey and Toby Harriman, I’ve opted for the long exposure to get the best out of the reflections, trails and smoothness of the sea and sky, which also helps portray the passage of time and motion, but also calmness, serenity and fluidity. Much so like Ernst Haas, I’ve documented my Turangawaewae with colour, and freedom with abstract imagery. In each of these photographs, I feel as I’ve successfully captured ‘moments’ and/or dramatic scenes that portray my places of being in the most depth.
