Some more from the weekend walk about.  After wandering around Docklands for a bit I headed up onto the La Trobe Street bridge wondering what the view would be like.

The New Space
The first bit of studio gear I bought was a Tristar light stand that extends to about 4m in height. I thought it was so cool. I still have that stand, but I have added about a dozen others in the 20 or so years since I bought the Tristar.

The Fujifilm X-H1: the pro that never had a chance!
This is a story that can be narrated many times for all the people and for the things they have created at a wrong moment but that may have been successful if things have worked differently.

Back To Bowens
The very first lighting kit I ever bought some 20 years ago was a pair of Bowens Esprit 250 monolights. I thought they were sooo cool.

Something has to be different!
Replication is not a new thing in photography as for variations over a basic theme but, at least, variations are a different exploration of the main subject opposed to simply an endless reproduction of the same formula.

The Panasonic Lumix G95 / G90: Back to basics!
Many of us have a special affection for the Panasonic Lumix MFT products. Their functional esthetic reminds me all these German designs of the begin of the 20th century with simplicity, durability, and efficiency as essential characteristics of their products.

The few (pictures) that really count!
While scanning through the Flickr Photo public bank, a sudden reflexion strikes me about the futility of presenting a massive number of pictures compare to be more selective and choosing the few ones that can generate more impact, questioning and inspiration.

The Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm F1.8 Premium: the other normal lens
Of course, everyone knows the usual consensus that defines the "normal" focal length of any picture format by its diagonal of its recording plane-surface. The best known can be referred in the old 35mm film format ( 24 X 36mm) as the 50mm lens although the result of the real calculation in this particular format should have been around a focal length of 43mm.

Durban Burns Again

Over the past few years I have watched extraordinary changes occur in my home town. They haven’t been welcome. If I could describe them in simple words I guess I’d use terms like “degeneration” or “deriliction”.

Low Hanging Fruit
If I take a long hard look at the photography I do for money, it becomes apparent that I am quite content to pick the low hanging fruit as far as jobs go, foregoing any interest in the type of big money work that most commercial photographers strive towards.

Crispy Contrasts or how to catch the eye!
I love contrasts! My camera too! And its autofocus system is crazy about contrast at a point that if there isn't any, it refuses to work properly! Contrasts are an important part of this life.

A story (or even two or three,) and a few photos.
Presently I live about 500 miles west of Anchorage, Alaska.  I am a night person.  Which means I am NOT a morning person. But at this time of year, and this far north, I get the joy of watching a sunrise after 10 AM. And a sunset BEFORE 5 PM.

Who Cares What You Shoot With?
When I got my first “big boy” camera in 2000 not only did I not know anything more than how to press the button that made the film expose, but I also didn’t have any notion whatsoever of just how profoundly that purchase would change the trajectory of my life.
