Twelve Apostles, Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia. Leanne Cole (Used with permission).
Every so often, I find a great blog or photo website, or photographer, that I want to feature here and recommend. Leanne Cole’s blog is one such. With great design and lots of content, aptly subtitled “Art and Practice,” Leanne’s site is a model of a great photography blog.
Leanne is from Melbourne Australia, and her blog features her photography in and around Melbourne and throughout Australia. Having lived in Australia a few years back, I love her work, which is varied and evocative – The next best thing to being there! The site is kept fresh and up-to-date because Leanne blogs regularly and often. Each week, Leanne posts photography and remarks from her “Weekend Wanderings.” She also features an extensive section on “Learning Photography,” with tutorials and helpful remarks on photographic technique and post-processing. It’s informative, educational, educational, and includes great Australian landscapes and scenes.

Leanne’s photography is accomplished and appealing. She achieves rich and deep yet natural color, especially in shots of buildings and urban scenes, and she has a good eye for landscape composition. I especially admire her skillful post-processing work.
You should also visit another site of Leanne’s, Leanne Cole Photography, with her portfolio and galleries and images for sale.
Leanne is a member of Photographers.com.au and frequently posts there. I found a recent post and discussion on “Photography as Art” by Leanne quite interesting. I’ll write more on that topic soon. (If you’re in Australia and not yet familiar with Photographers.com.au, you certainly should check it out!)
Highly recommended: Leanne Cole Photography: Art and Practice.
