Spinning Stars

Spinning Stars

An update to last year's feature on shooting star trails. By combining a "bright frame" with the trail you can achieve a smoother and more pleasing look to your trails.

How many full frame DSLR cameras can you load onto an airliner before it just can't take off and fly?


The Best 35mm Lens for My LUMIX

The Best 35mm Lens for My LUMIX

If you appreciate the value of a 35mm prime lens, you’ll also appreciate that there are a good many 35mm designs to choose from now. Here are my favourite two 35mm lenses from Panasonic and Sigma, both for full-frame L-Mount bodies, and why they appeal to such wildly different photographic styles.


The Absolute Best Lens in Nepal

The Absolute Best Lens in Nepal

Very rarely a new lens comes along that changes how I think about photography. This is one of those lenses. My priority for glass is always quality over convenience, but this time you get enough of both to make it a hard one to walk past. The newly released "DG Vario-Summilux 10-25mm f/1.7 ASPH" by Panasonic+Leica is not only a great lens for MFT systems, but may well be good enough to tempt full frame owners to look seriously at adopting the smaller mirrorless format of the Lumix G series.

Star Trails at Sunset

Star Trails at Sunset

This is the third evolution of my star trails guides, a small refinement but one I plan to use quite a lot in future. This feature adds onto the previous two guides which go deeper into the technique of capturing and stacking a star trail sequence.

Three lenses from the Zeiss factory offer professional grade fast primes for APS-C sized interchangeable formats.


Nikon D600 Review

Nikon D600 Review

Professional image quality in a budget package. In many ways the D600 is better than the D800, it's the camera a lot of Nikon owners have been waiting for.


Landscapes

Landscapes

Landscape photography is a specialisation on its own. A demanding travel schedule puts limits on what you can practically achieve with landscapes, but just one really good image can bring a unique context to your destination set.


Capture One Turns Five

Capture One Turns Five

It often surprises my travellers to learn that I don't use Lightroom to process my RAW files. I don't use Aperture either. My choice might seem eclectic at first but my loyalty to Capture One has rewarded me many times over. Find out how.


Sonys Translucent Future

Sonys Translucent Future

Is the SLT concept really going to change digital photography forever, or will it be another evolutionary dead end from Japan's top tech innovator?
