My first dSLR
So which dSLR should I get? Well there are a few things to consider, here are my recommendations: Which flavour? First up you need to decide on a brand. In reality there is no wrong decision although you might think so later down the track. Nikon’s are better in low light, but Canon’s do video […]

UV Filter, should I use one?
I would have to say NO…but read on. Starting out in photography we all do the same regardless of who we are and where we end up. First we buy an SLR with a kit lens or two, then a UV filter, then a polarising filter. Why? I have no idea, I would love to […]

Landscape Photography kit bag
I thought it was about time to show you how I roll. This is the setup I take on all shoots and has been refined over a period of time. These aren’t quite the bare essentials but the whole lot isn’t overly heavy for short trips. I tend to cut it down if I’ll be […]
