PHOTO OPPORTUNITY GALORE IN KIRRIBILLI

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY GALORE IN KIRRIBILLI

Last weekend my friend Kim and I took advantage of a break in the cold winter weather and headed over to Kirribili near the Sydney Harbour. This place really is a photo op galore, from heart-stopping beautiful views of Sydney’s Harbor, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, Sydney Opera House, and the cities sensational skyline….There are just too many photo opportunities.

We spend about 3 hours there before we had to head home and took that time to our full advantage. We took some pretty dazzling shots which I will show you underneath. I will also show you where to find these spots, in case you would like to re-create these. Cause you really should!

STOP 1: KIRRIBILLI WHARF 

Kirribilli Wharf is pretty much located right in front of the Opera House, making it the perfect spot for photography. The light trail on this picture did not completely work out like I wanted to. It was a small boat which was not going very fast. So it is not very impressive. But it still gives off a pretty cool effect…. don’t you think?

CAMARA SETTING:

30 seconds exposure on manual settings with wide angle lenses on a tripod.

YAY Sydney Ferries! After some trial and error, I found out that getting large light trails can be made when Ferries go past. They have a lot more speed and have multiple strong lights.

CAMARA SETTING:

30 seconds exposure on manual settings with wide angle lenses on a tripod.

This picture is again not amazing, but I did like how it turned out post editing. The light trail gives it a cool effect, so I still wanted to share this picture with you.

Lastly, I borrowed my friend’s lens (she is studying to become a photographer, so she has all the coolest stuff) and played around with it for a bit. This lens is also a wide-angle lens but it also has a zoom function. It gives off the brightest colors, and now I am in love and need this lens in my life hahah.

CAMARA SETTING:

30 seconds exposure on manual settings with a Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens on a tripod.

STOP 2: CORNER OF KIRRIBILLI AVE AND BEULAH STREET 

I had seen an amazing picture of Sydney official tourism Instagram account. I saved it on my phone, so if I was ever in the area I had to go take a similar picture. I still had my friends lens, who she desperately wanted back, but I held on to it as long as I could. With the pictures underneath as a result.

This spot can be found on the corner of Kirribilli Ave and Beulah Street. It is a super cool place to take some more artistic and non-standard pictures.

STOP 3: JEFFREY STREET WHARF 

Still with Kim’s expensive lens securely fastened on my camera, we wandered over to Jeffrey Street Wharf. This Wharf is a little more located towards the Sydney Harbour Bridge then Kirribilli Wharf.

If you look closely, you realllly have to get close to your screen, then you can see some stars above the skyline and Opera House. So pretty. In order to capture more, I’d need a more expensive camera, so this is all I can get with all the light pollution, but I still love it and I hope you do too.
