Love is a Lens
Can you truly love your photography if you don't love your camera? It's the lenses I truly love however, that's where the character comes from.
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.
Street Art is alive and well in Bangkok, offering a new perspective on the contemporary lives of the Thai people. It's also a fascinating opportunity for photographers looking for something besides yet another golden temple.
Sharing the moment with Tim
I want to share a few words of appreciation for a fellow traveller, just one of many lovely people who help to make these journeys a little bit more special.
Photographers on a Plane
How many full frame DSLR cameras can you load onto an airliner before it just can't take off and fly?
Circles and The Camera
There's a deep irony in writing 1000 words on why images can elicit a deep emotional response. For those who want to know why I do what I do, in magazines and workshops, then please read on.
One is never enough
What went on in Hobart and why food photography is more than just another gig.
We Made A Cookbook
We’ve been waiting a very long time for this moment! Cabin Fever Cookbook is coming! Finally Shellie and I get to share our cookbook and the wonderful experiences that made it possible. Scandinavian inspiration, stunning locations, wonderful ingredients and some of our very best photography.
Blurb Restores Photography to Reality
Blurb has been a wonderful development for me because now I can see more of my photographic expression converted to the printed media for which cameras were originally intended. The digital age has made photography more relevant and more accessible, but Blurb and other sites like it have returned digital photography to the essence of the art - sharing a printed image.
Taking it Offline
Online is necessary. Offline is essential.
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.
Take it Slow at the Night Market
Last week I shared a series of stills from the Queen Victoria Market, from the reopening of the Night Market. This time I've gone back with my very modest video rig to capture a slow-motion series using the high-speed ability of the Lumix G9 and a single lens.
