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?

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 […]

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 […]

B+W 10 stop (3.0) ND filter ND-110
I’ve had the B+W 10 stop 3.0 ND filter for a few months now and thought I would give it a whirl on a recent trip to NZ. In retrospect I should have played with it before I left or even researched other peoples experiences, needless to say I had mixed results. Since then I’ve […]
