  • Visiting New Places and Getting a PS5

    So it has been an interesting but busy fortnight and that isn’t changing soon. This post will be short and to the point but I promise I’ll be back in 2 weeks with something more detailed. The New Toy I was lucky enough to get myself a PS5 at launch which are really hard to get right now. It’s a really beautiful console so I couldn’t resist but taking some…

  • All About Still Life

    Welcome to my first fortnightly update for April 2020. Smaller Celebrations Despite still not being allowed outside,I have been shooting a bit more. As you can tell by the featured image at the top of the page, we had some birthday celebrations over the past fortnight. Prior to this whole pandemic, we were actually meant to be in Japan over Easter. If our plans had gone through, I would have…

  • 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…

  • My Top 5 Photos of 2019

    With 2019 coming to an end, it is time to review my top 5 images of the year. Below you will see in no particular order the images I picked including a brief description of them. Fuji Instax This image is one I took most recently out of the top 5. I had watched a tutorial on product photography that I wanted to give a try and this was my…

  • 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…

  • 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,…

  • Sony WF-1000XM3

    Here are the recently released Sony WF-1000XM3. I couldn’t resist but get myself a pair and so far I’m glad I did. I’m surprised to say the audio quality of these can easily match my Bose QC35II’s. They’re just a few days old so this may change over time, but i doubt it.  

  • Living Life Still

    Recently I have been getting back into still life photography. I have been lazy to leave the house and also sick so shooting at home was the easiest solution. In the first episode of my podcast, I mentioned that origami is something I really enjoy but am bad at. I was thinking about this and decided, why settle for being bad at it when I can try to improve? The…

  • 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…

  • Time

    Although I don’t particularly like wrist watches (aside from Smart Watches), I really love pocket watches. This one I bought from a local store as I’ve always owned cheap ones off eBay, but never anything of decent quality. This image is actually taken on my bed with some fairly lights hung up in the background. This won’t be the last image I take of this pocket watch, it’s just about…
