  • My First Trip to Auckland

    A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to visit Auckland for the first time. This trip was mainly to attend a good friends wedding, although we stayed a few extra days to explore. I have several friends that live there and one had described Auckland as being like Perth. I have to admit that in the Uber ride to our hotel, it did seem really quite despite being a…

  • My First Update for 2020

    Here is my first update for 2020. I was originally planning on uploading these earlier but my holiday to Auckland and redesigning of  TPE took up more time than I planned. This is a combination of images I took over the holiday period. Some are of my new lens which I have reviewed here. I also got a new light stick which is the light saber looking item several photos…

  • The Photography Enthusiast Podcast

    With this being my final post of 2019, it‘s time to focus on my goals for 2020. Thanks to work and other commitments, I didn’t really do much of my podcast last year which I hope to change next year. I did write quite a few posts over at my other website and have many more planned for 2020. If you enjoy photography podcasts you can follow me at the…

  • Christmas Markets & Bokeh Balls

    So here are some photos from the past few weeks I’ve taken. This will be my last post of this type for 2019 and then I’ll be trying the new format as of next year. Here are some photos from around the Christmas Markets at The Rocks here in Sydney. I went during the day when it was quite warm so I didn’t take too many photos. The best part…

    Here are a bunch of photos I’ve taken since my last update. I finished my exams mid last month but have been very lazy recently and still enjoying the break. I’m hoping to get back into things soon and try some new things so keep your eyes out for those. If you would like to be notified when I make a new post, please fill out the form below.

  • Been Having A Break

    So recently with uni and work I’ve been a bit strapped for time. I know I used to do posts on each photo but I think I’ll keep this format for at least the next few weeks until my exams are done. Below are a bunch of different images from different days and events over the past few weeks. Enjoy!

  • A New Style of Product Photography

    Over the past week I’ve been trying to decide (and still deciding) if I should sell my M5. It’s not that I don’t like it, I just don’t use it enough and the money could go to a drone or new monitor which I really want. I watched this really great tutorial on removing backgrounds in Photoshop and wanted to try this with my product photography. I decided to use a…

  • Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 First Impressions

    It was a long wait but my Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 has finally arrived! I have been really excited to get this lens and I can say it does not disappoint. I wouldn’t call this a comprehensive or technical review, but more of my first impressions of this lens. I’ve previously covered why I love 35mm lenses over at TPE, so if you want more context check it out here.

  • My Newest Obsession

    I’m very pleased to say my Sony FE 35mm f/1.8 has finally arrived 🎉 I have had very limited use with the lens so far but from my limited use, I’m very impressed. It’s a tiny bit bigger than my Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 which is a crop lens! I tried taking a few images of my girlfriend using Eye AF and not only was the AF fast and quiet,…
