WT:013 How to use your new Digital Camera


Santa has been and gone and some of you may have been lucky enough, or good enough, to get a digital camera. In this episode of our photography podcast we are back and help give you tips on how to use your brand new camera. Plus we review the Pool of Siloam located in NSW’s Blue Mountains, an extremely clever lens in a Tilt Shift Lens plus we reveal the first of the seven photowalks that we have planned for 2015!

It is good to be back! 😀

Photography Topics Covered:

The Pool of Siloam

The Pool of Siloam

The Pool of Siloam is a little waterfall that is located in Leura in the New South Wales Blue Mountains. Rob visited there recently looking for a different waterfall and was blown away by just how tranquil and gorgeous the waterfall was. It has quickly become on of his favourites and a place that you should check out if you ever get the chance.

Tilt Shift Lens

In this episode Ben reviews a tilt shift lens that he had showed off that morning to Rob at a sunrise shoot. This is an incredible lens that allows you to capture an amazing range without ever moving the camera body or the tripod. Here Ben speaks more about the technology and just how to use it.

Using your new digital camera

Both Ben and Rob share with you their tips for setting up a new camera and all of the little things that you can do. We discuss many different things like formatting cards in camera, changing from jpg to raw, using the cameras buttons without looking and many more. Hopefully this helps you use that camera quicker to get the results that you are after.

      Haha – James I will let you in on a little secret. I finally updated the time on my camera just last week. Enjoy the Pool of Siloam. But please don’t hate me for the return walk back to the car. 😉
