Melbourne’s been voted The Most Liveable City in The World FOUR years running and it seems only fitting that djb chose this vibrant, kick-arse part of the world to be the subject of Episode One: djb Photowalk TV. Yeahhhhhhhhh.
And it seems only fitting that he chose me, Melbourne Enthusiast, to be the host. Double yeahhhhhhh.
I feel pretty freakin grateful to have done some pretty cool stuff in my twenty-something years of being a human. I’ve struck gold when it comes to knowing exactly what makes me feel alive. And it sure as…poop…ain’t sitting on my couch. On that note, I may as well stuff in here that I massively overspent on a couch that I’ve sat on a grand total of three times. Once to meditate, once to FaceTime and the other to prove that I do actually sit on my couch. Which I don’t. Humph. What a waste of money.
Hosting the very first ep of DJB Photowalk TV was definitely up there in my top….54 (maybe?) of what makes me feel alive. “Whatever. Shut up.” I can hear djb saying from afar.
Okay okay okay…top three. Definitely made me feel alive. And THAT is a bloody good feeling.
So let me take you on a little journey that was the filming of DJB Photowalk TV Episode Numero Uno.
I joined a sweet little group of about ten beginner through intermediate photographers to be taught how to use our digital SLRs in manual mode by Amelia (djb photography Melbourne mentor) and Daniel (founder of the djb photography school). I often dish out (mostly unwanted) tips to friends on how to take awesome pics on their iPhones but on an actual camera…I have N.F.I. As you’ll see when the episode is launched, I don’t even know how to turn the damn thing on! How embarrassment!
We hit up the top five places to photograph in Melbourne, within walking distance from Fed Square and let me tell you, the timing was spot on, especially the sunset shot! We snapped hidden artwork, secret rooftops and managed to squish a few selfies in (dahhhhh). I’ve been sworn to secrecy when it comes to locations, but keep those eyes peeled on the djb photography school website or the djb photography Facebook page for the launch of EPISOOODDDEEEE OOONNNEEEE!
In the meantime, keep warm with these behind the scenes pics.
