Micro Four Thirds, The System That Sticks
I recently went through a period of gear FOMO brought about by discussions that were taking place on a couple of real estate photography groups that are dominated by Canon and Sony users.

A short expedition with the village of Barabanovo.
In general, I have long wanted to look at such a rarity in our region as a wooden temple. And then Sergey Medvedev suggested going somewhere, breathing air, and even so, would scatter. And why not in Drum?

Cape Town Is Different
Cape Town is different. While it sits at the toe of the African continent, visitors to this city might be forgiven for thinking that they have arrived somewhere else entirely.

Another view of my city.
The city is being intensively updated. Not everything flies at once, not everything goes smoothly. But locations with harmonious architectural solutions are already steadily appearing.

Nothing quite like the original...
I admit to finding some amusement in many Facebook photography groups reading peoples' posts on their quests to obtain lenses with "classic bokeh" (for want of a better description) for their digital cameras,  and manufacturers responding with increasingly more pricey and exotic lens designs...

The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm F4-5.5 II Power OIS: the affordable bird-watcher super zoom lens!
Is the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm F4-5.6 II Power OIS zoom lens the ultimate super telephoto for less than $900CAN? A look into the latest Panasonic MFT lens line-up seems to confirm this assertion. But what about the qualities of this specialized telephoto zoom lens?

And yet another modification...
I can't express adequately just how convenient and easy it is to modify some of the older film equipment in ways one couldn't even begin to contemplate with modern digital cameras. This sort of thing was standard practice when I started photography as a profession in the early 1970's.

Using The iPad Pro As A Laptop
So, I have gone a little bit googly-eyed over my iPad Pro 11". At first, I’ll be honest, I wasn’t loving it all that much and it didn’t take long for buyer’s remorse to set in when I got it home.

Learning how to use tools again
Rediscovering the thing that went missing with digital as far as modifying and re-hashing the actual equipment is concerned, the old cameras really do enable a hands-on ability to shape things the way you want without having to have a degree in computer science or electronics.

Life in 16mm (w/Fujinon XF16mm F2.8 R WR lens)
Seeing life with a more wide angle of view is not rare thing but for many it may be a photographic higher challenge compare to the more selective view of a telephoto lens. Yes there is already a lot of landscape (nature or urban) aficionados around the who are producing striking pictures so why limit the use o a wide angle lens to that specialized purpose?

Shooting Commercial Interiors
It seems that my name is being passed on to the right people. I was commissioned this week to photograph a private college campus for an architectural design firm based down in Cape Town and I was really excited to finally work directly with an architect, especially one from another city (bodes well for the future).

Losing A Regular Photography Gig
Last year was a pretty good year for me on the work front. This year started off well too, but then I went away on safari and came back on 1 July to find that my main photography gig had pretty much disappeared from under my nose.
So what happened?

The Rise Of Computational Photography
Let’s just say you, like me, make money out of photography by being able to do things with cameras and software that non-experienced photographers firstly have no clue on how to do, and secondly don’t have the patience to be able to learn. It’s a good situation for us to to be in, because we are filling a need that this other person has and of course we can charge them for these skills we have developed. But what if something came along that enabled that non-experienced person to produce images that are very close to what we can create with our skillset?
