on location 
An early winter’s morning large format (Cambo 5x7 SC monorail) photo session of the MLC building in Adelaide’s CBD. It was Sunday so there were few cars and people around.

Bank St,  Adelaide
Made whilst on a photo walk in Adelaide’s CBD  with two  photography friends. They both use digital cameras. This is another indication that digital won over film a long time ago. 
Those who continue to use film these days  are mainly elderly people and  “hipsters”. These people believe that things from the past are better than things from the present, and thus strive to bring back the, “good old days”.
The digital crowd often  try to mimic the look of film in their digital captures use software such as DxO FilmPack—essentially a collection of algorithms that will emulate the look of a specific positive or negative film in a digital image.

Encounter Bay, Victor Harbor
Stormy weather at Victor Harbor, South Australia.  I gave up on 5x4 photoshoot of this urban scene because of the rain.  So I decided to drive up   to Rosetta Head to take some photos  of  the clouds.

times change
The  old school  digital workflow. Go on a shoot with a camera.  Sit down at the computer to upload and edit with expensive software.  Share when you’re done on social media, an exhibition or  with clients.   
But that’s not the digital world we live in anymore because of the prevalence of iPhoneography. 
Today we want to shoot, share immediately with a cool filter effect, edit on an iPad, sit down at your 4k display and get serious, pick up the iPad and show off what you’ve done, mix, repeat. We want our devices, our libraries, our experience integrated and seamless.
