Passion for Light

Photography by Lachlan Fennen

Thanks for visiting my photographic home on the web. This is where I share my growing porftolio of photos. Photography has become a passion of mine in recent times and while I consider it a hobby, I am constantly eager to learn new techniques, practice the craft and share what I capture with the world. I also sell a collection of these images over at 500px and Red Bubble so jump to the Contact page if you’d like to know more.

Abstracts

These are images from all kinds of places with an abstract feel about them - either partial shots of the object to highlight patterns and textures or they may be completely unrecognisable as a specific object and are entirely about the patterns and textures.

Trentham Falls

The Trentham Falls offer a beautiful photographic opportunity and a beautiful scenic destination for those less inclined to wield a camera. These photos were taken at a time when there was a lot of rain over the weeks preceding so the falls were full and...

Macro Flowers

Getting up close and personal with nature can reveal extraordinary beauty in the seemingly everyday. I still find macro photography to be one of the most challenging styles of photography, but it's so rewarding when you get it right!

Melbourne Street Art

Melbourne is full of great laneways. While many of them are full of cafes and restaurants, others like Hosier Lane are common tourist stops in Melbourne's CBD because of the forever changing series of street art, shoes over power lines, and various other...
