Sony A7r is no more
Well I’ve had my fun with the Sony A7r. I was tempted like so many and for a brief moment I was a Sony shooter. I loved the little camera…but that love was short lived. I’ve learnt my lesson, the grass certainly isn’t greener and the Sony is gone. Sold to the next photographer that […]

Lightweight Camera Setup
Ever since I started weighing all my gear for winter hiking and camping in the mountains, I’ve been really conscience of reducing the load I’m carrying. It has actually been quite enlightening (or should that be lightening). I no longer feel the need to lug around all this heavy gear. I can get away with […]

Filters do we still need them?
With the advent of better camera technology and clever processing software, do we really need neutral density filters any more? Can’t we just replicate the effect of filters in Photoshop or even in camera? Isn’t the dynamic range sufficient in my shiny new Sony camera?

Neglecting anyone of these can have dire consequences. I don’t say this to scare you, or for shock value. In reality you are going to a very hazardous environment […]

Lee Filter Landscape Sunrise Sky Set
I’m an avid fan of Lee filters using their Neutral Density (ND) filters on almost every shoot. However I’ve always cringed at the thought of using their coloured filters. I mean why would I want my photos to look like the opening scene of CSI Miami? I had it in my mind there was no […]

Camera Care & Cleaning
Taking care of your camera gear is paramount for some, even to the extent where some camera owners would prefer not to use their gear rather than risk getting dirt, dust, water or any other nasties near it. Of course all of these can be camera killers, but not using our cameras and being super […]

Monitor Calibration i1Display Pro
I’ve been running an uncalibrated system since upgrading to an iMac a couple of years back. I know I’m a hethan, who does colour work on an iMac? Well a lot of us. Not everyone has the funds or need for a fancy monitor that displays the full gamut of Adobe 98. In reality I […]
