  • Living the 85MM Life and Loving It

    Recently I’ve been using my 85mm lens a lot more, not just to get more use out of it but also so I can become more accustomed to the focal length, so it feels as natural to me as a 35mn lens. Every single image in this post is taken with the Sigma 85mm f/1.4…

    Keeping it Casual and Chinese New Year

    It’s been some time since my last post and although I don’t have a huge amount of images, I thought it would still be worth doing an update. There’s nothing too groundbreaking in here but just some casual shots as I’ve taken while going about my usual routines. Making Use of a UWA Ultra Wide…

  • Sydney as Dusk

    An Early Start to the Day

    Photography-wise, it’s been a slow start to the year, but I finally changed that. I have a bit of free time at the moment, so I wanted to go out shooting. If you read my blog a lot, you’ll know I don’t like staying out late, so the only option for me was to shoot…

  • A Quick Post to End 2023

    I had a few images sitting around that haven’t been posted yet so I thought I’d share them as one last post for 2023. I hope everyone has a safe New Years Eve and enjoys their 2024!

  • My Top 5 Photos of 2023

    I’m cutting it a bit close, but I’ve finally gotten around to finishing up my top 5 photos of 2023. I didn’t do much photography this year as I spent about 3 months with an eye issue that made editing not so easy. In fact, many of the photos I edited during that period need…

  • a7C II

    The Sony Alpha a7C II Has Arrived!

    Last week I purchased the Sony Alpha a7C II! We had a really good sale which was essentially 20% off the price so it was too good to resist. If my cashback requests goes through too then I’ll be getting the camera for even cheaper as well. I’ll share some impressions of it so far…

  • Kyoto, Uji and Nara

    Adventures in Kyoto, Uji and Nara

    After much delay I’m finally done with editing the images from my time in Kyoto. Now despite having 52 images to post there was obviously a lot more, but I tried to narrow it down to what I would consider the better images. My impressions of the 3 places would come down to this. Kyoto…

  • Sigma 50mm f2 DG DN

    The Sigma 50mm f/2 DG DN Has Arrived

    Last week I received my Sigma 50mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary lens. This lens will be something small I can carry around with me when I don’t feel like dealing with the added weight of my 35GM or 85mm Art. Also, once I get the a7C II this lens will primarily be used with that…

  • The iPhone 15 Plus

    I Got the Apple iPhone 15 Plus!

    After 4 years of owning an Apple iPhone XS Max, I finally upgraded. Like anything I thought I’d share some images of the new phone which I took with the Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DN Art. This is now my go to product photography lens and it’s continuing to impress me. Below are the actual images…

  • Blue Hour at Blackwattle Bay in Sydney

    Last weekend I had some free time so decided to go to a location not too far from me to capture a sunset/blue hour shot of Anzac Bridge which you can see at the top of the page. The details for that shot are as follows: I’ve shot this bridge before from a further away…
