Sculptures by the Sea:
Sculptures by the Sea at Bondi starts this coming Thursday, the 23rd of October and runs through until Sunday the 9th of November. This is a fabulous event for photographers wanting to captures something a little different and enjoy another type of artwork. This is one of, if not my (Rob) most favourite event to photographer each year and we highly recommend you get down there and check it out for yourself. And if you see us, make sure you come up and say hello. 🙂

17-35mm f2.8 Nikkor Lens
Ben recently purchased a new second hand lens for $800 – where it normally retails for close to $2500 but it does have a really bad reputation… It is the Nikkor 17-35mm f2.8 wide angle zoom lens that has a bit of a screech to it. Now despite the bad press, Ben absolutely loved using this lens and says that it is just as sharp as some of Nikons best lenses.
Our travel tips for photographers
With the photowalk guys having recently hit the road and travelled to Melbourne, as well as Ben jet setting off to the Bahamas and Fiji, we thought we would share with you a few tips that helped us on our journey including an interesting use of a shopping bag, postcards and a shower cap. An episode that you are certainly going to want to listen to if you too are planning a trip somewhere sometime soon. Or… even just dreaming of one. 😉
