Photo Friday – TEXTURES – Charmaine Holland


‘Photo Friday’ is a weekly photography competition that Camera House Australia runs. Every week we choose a new theme and prize, and this week the winner was Charmain Holland who entered this creative image for the theme: TEXTURES.

We asked Charmaine a few questions about her image, and this is what she had to say:

Q.What inspired this photo?

A. one word…History! I was walking around in the hills near my home and came across an old Bedford truck and thought of all the work it has done in it’s life and thought it would be really nice to capture the truck as it is now and just imaging what it was like when it was new.

Q.What camera did you use?

A.  I used a Nokia Lumia 1020 mobile phone camera which has a 41mp camera as I have found myself getting into mobile photography.

Q. What setting did you use?

A. Automatic HDR settings (it took 3 photos then bracketed them) in a app called HDR pro then I toned down the colours.

Q. Do you have any advice for our community photographers?

A. do not be afraid to use anything with a camera even if it is a mobile phone as we always have them with is. Also be prepared to take a photo when you least expect it because that is when you capture the true beauty of life.
