  • Mrs Macquaries Point

    Have you ever been to a location to try something new, then leave feeling like the shots didn’t work out? That’s how I felt after taking the above image. I wanted to try a HDR panorama in Lightroom which is a feature I’ve never tried. Above you’ll see the original merged image before cropping. It is comprised of 18 images, 3 exposures each frame. Due to the nature of a…

  • Christmas in July Markets

    Here we have several images that were taken over the past few weeks. The featured image as well as the following 2 were taken at the Christmas in July Markets here in Sydney. Sadly I forgot I had the silent shutter enabled so the image of the blowtorch has some banding. Next we have a street shot of Capitol which is located in Haymarket, Sydney. This was taken with my…

  • My Favorite Flavor

    When it comes to tea I would say Chamomile is easily my favorite flavor. For quite some time, I went back to drinking tea bags instead of the fresh leaves. Recently I bought one those small strainers (the item in the picture holding the tea) so I’ve gone back to drinking leaves and I’m very glad I did.  

  • JJC Lens Case

    Above is a JJC lens case I bought to house my Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 FE. Sadly this lens doesn’t come with its own case so I found this to be a good alternative. The quality and price are just right so I can definitely recommend it to anyone who owns this Tamron zoom.

  • Another Week Done

    So in my last post I mentioned how good the weather had been with all the rain. Sadly that didn’t last and the sun is back as you can see. It’s been a fairly busy week for me since I was trying to finish my article on why I love 35mm and 85mm. If you want to give that a read, head on over to The Photography Enthusiast. Below are…

  • Replay

    Recently I started my second play through of The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. When I originally played it on PS4, I didn’t get to play the DLC. Back then I didn’t have a decent PC and with this game always on sale, I got the complete edition on PC. So far I’ve played for 105 hours and only just finished the story. I honestly forgot how amazing not only this…

  • Recent Weeks

    The weather here in Sydney has been a bit temperamental the past few weeks. We’ve had everything from rain to fog to sunshine. Below are a few photos from just over a week ago when we had some heavy fog on a Saturday morning. The image above was a several minute long exposure for the sky and a short 30 second exposure for the buildings and foreground. The last time…

  • Another Year, Another Vivid Festival

    Here are some photos from the Vivid festival here in Sydney. Nothing really changed much this year so I didn’t take many photos. The few photos I did take were mostly candid street shots. All shots were taken handheld and I had to bump the ISO up quite. This is probably the first time I’ve used the A7III as high as ISO 12,800 and I have mixed feelings. As I…

  • Just Go Shoot

    There’s a few things I want to cover in this post. First off, yes this is another self portrait. Any time I get sick of my display picture on social media, this is my answer to that problem. Rather than use a mirror like people typically use, I had the A7III and the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art on a tripod. I always do the same pose for all my self…

  • The Disappointment

    Now this mug comes with a somewhat disappointing story for me. It’s nothing serious and more humorous than anything. My girlfriend went to Japan back in February and while there, sent me photos of all the Starbucks mugs they sell there. The photo below is what she sent me and I was instantly in love with the mug in the photo. Now it was just a matter of waiting until…
