Speciality: nature, landscapes
Biography: Rene started taking photos 30 years ago in the days of film photography. He initially loved abstract imagery but ended up spending a lot of money on processing and development. Eventually, he lost interest in the art of taking photos.
It wasn't until a few years ago that Rene's curiosity was piqued once more with the accessibility of digital photography; all of a sudden he shifted towards landscapes rather than abstracts. Rene loves to talk to people about taking photos and has inspired many others to pick up a camera and join in with his hobby.
This is the Benalla Monash Bridge again just after dusk with a tripod and a clear, still early evening. The water on the lake can get some great reflections and from different angles shows off most of the bridge.
Exposure: multiple exposures of 1/2, five seconds, 10 seconds, f/5.6, ISO 100, 27mm
This is a very small part of Winton Wetlands, which I have been able to get into and take some photos. This used to be underwater as Lake Mokoan but has been reclaimed as wetlands just recently. This is a panorama made of 15 photos stitched together.
