World Photo Day 2017

World Photo Day 2017

I joined a group of keen photographers – mostly members of the Southland Photographic Society – who headed out for a series of photowalks around Invercargill on Saturday to celebrate World Photo Day 2017.

For some time now I have been working towards launching a redesign of this website to coincide with World Photo Day, and I managed it with a day or two to spare, so it is rather fitting to be able to post some of my World Photo Day images.

All the photographs you see here were taken with my Nikon D5100 and standard 18-55mm kit lens, and all images have been processed in On1 Photo RAW.

I have gone for a mix of urban, gritty images combined with action at the local skateboard park (shooting action is a first for me), plus some deadpan, along with a touch of HDR thrown in as well.

Rick - The Occasional Photoblogger

I am Invercargill photographer Rick Harvey – aka The Occasional Photoblogger. I consider myself an opportunist photographer and enjoy taking photographs of ordinary things I see around me, and try to make them appear a little less ordinary and interesting, and while it is always nice to have others appreciate my images, my primary goal is to take photographs that make me happy.
