The last few weeks I’ve been training the trigger finger with Photography Night Walks. It’s a great way for amateurs to learn their camera’s f-stop, shutter, ISO exposure triangle and for the more experienced a fantastic way to socialise with like-minded photo enthusiasts while experimenting on the move.

This walk toured part-way through the grounds of Melbourne University which never having seen before had the added benefit of being a first-time adventure. The main building grounds after dark offer fantastic opportunities for moody noir’ish lighting, Jake Gittes would’ve felt right at home here. Then there were the “Witches of Eastwick” lighting up the main quadrangle with their fiery wands and hovering balls of light. Perhaps they were College students killing a few hours on a balmy night but I don’t like to ruin my reality with rationality.
