  • Something Wide

    This fortnight was exciting as I got two new lenses, the Sony FE PZ 16-35mm f/4 G and the Fujifilm XF 27mm F2.8 R WR. Now the interesting part is at the time of writing, I only own one of these lenses now. This was one of the instances of if renting was a viable option here in Sydney then I never would have purchased it. Regardless of that let’s…

  • Time to Get Good Again

    My images are starting to back up so despite my last post being only a few days ago, here we are with another post. I’ve been very eager to actually take photos which is a good change. We’ve had some wet weather here in Sydney though so it hasn’t be as easy as I’d like. Of course being the new camera I’ve mainly been using the Sony A7IV but I’ve…

  • My Sony Kit So Far

    It’s only been a few days since I made the swap to Sony but it’s been busy. Like whenever I get a new camera I’ve been taking a lot of photos so I can get used to how the body works. In next week’s podcast episode I’ll be discussing in detail why I made the swap and some early impressions. I know have 2 E Mount lenses and I definitely…

  • Back and Forth Again

    In my recent podcast episode I made it clear I wasn’t happy with the lens prices of Canon. Well things escalated VERY quick and I have now made a full swap back to Sony. In the past week I have sold off the majority of my Canon gear and just purchased a Sony Alpha a7 IV and Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 GM. I’ll have a much more detailed post out…

  • The Wide Angle Dilemma

    This past weekend I was lucky enough to have a 4 days off thanks to the bank holiday. The weather was clear and I couldn’t resist going out to shoot so I headed to Circular Quay. I decided I was going to use the RF 16mm f/2.8 since it’s one of my least used lenses and deserves some attention. Before this lens was announced/released it was always a dream focal…

  • A Trip To Melbourne & More

    This is probably one of my biggest posts in quite some time. I’ve got a bit behind in my editing but I guess it’s more content for you. I’m finally back to shooting a lot, partially thanks to a new camera. As I mentioned in my last post, I said goodbye to the Canon EOS M50 Mark II and hello to the Fujifilm X-S10. First topic to cover though is…

  • How My Cityscapes Have Changed

    Last weekend I went out to shoot Cityscapes for the first time since daylight savings ended. I decided to use the Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 for the image above and I realized something interesting, I actually prefer telephotos for Cityscapes now. Just to see if this was true I thought I’d also go out with the Canon RF 100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM which is another lens I own but haven’t…

  • A Review, a Revisit and a Cafe

    We are almost halfway through April and I’ve barely been shooting this year so far but I’m trying to change that. I have now released my Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 STM IS review over at The Photography Enthusiast which the featured image at the top of the page is for. Aside from that I’ve had 2 photo outings of sorts. The first one was me just simply going to QVB…

  • The Family Grows Then Shrinks

    Despite making it my goal to control my G.A.S this year, my lens family got a tiny bit bigger last week. In 2020 I travelled within the state using just the M5 and was pleasantly surprised with how well it performed and didn’t feel limiting. Like most people, if travelling with family photography isn’t my sole focus so I don’t usually have the same dedication to photos as I have…

  • Celebrations, A Review and More!

    So it’s been a while since my last post and although I haven’t updated this blog, I’ve still been shooting. I haven’t been able to keep up with the Macro Monday challenges and stuff like that but I have shot from time to time when visiting a few places and out for meals. Here are the images from the past month or so. Chinese New Year It was nearly a…
