Canberra Hot Air Balloon Photowalk:
We have now finished our Canberra Hot Air Balloon festival Photowalk and while it was a lot of fun, unfortunately the Balloons didn’t quite get off the ground. However a very big thank you to all of those people that made the trip to Canberra for the photowalk and either drove many hours and/or got up really early to join us.
If you are looking for a great lookout in the New South Wales Blue Mountains to photograph, we cannot recommend highly enough Walls Lookout. Listen in as Rob shares his thoughts and tips for photographing this fantastic location.
New Wide Angle Lenses
Both Tamron and Canon have released new wide angle lenses that will compete with the very popular Nikon 14 to 24mm lens. The Tamron is a 15-30mm f2.8 and is priced at a very respectable $1500 and the Canon is an 11-24mm f4 with Vibration Reduction but at around the $3000 price point. Ben and Rob share their thoughts about each of these lenses and which one you should get.
Picking a great camera bag is really important and out of all your camera gear, is probably going to be your most used piece of equipment. Our main discussion for this podcast is about camera bags and in particular the different types of bags, what not to do with them and what you need to ask yourself before making a purchase. Plus much much more!
We hope it helps. 😉
Our next photowalk will be at the beautiful Blue Mountains/Mount Tomah Botanical Gardens on Saturday the 9th of May from 3pm to 5pm. If you haven’t yet been for his place, then you really are in for a treat and should grab a friend and come along.
Plus we will be holding our first ever Photowalk Guys Photography Workshop. This will be at the same place between 10am and 2pm and focus on learning how best to use your camera with Ben and then understand Photoshop with Rob.
We will have more information about the workshop and photowalk up on the website soon. 🙂
Thanks for listening,
The Photowalk Guys
