    The Lithgow Blast Furnace:

    Wanting to chat about a photography location that has an abandoned feel to it, we speak about the old Blast Furnace that is at… Wait for it… Lithgow. The Lithgow Blast furnace is and incredible place and a location that was going to be the place for our next photowalk. However in the near future the council will be constructing a wall around the park to limit peoples access so if you would like to check it out, probably best to do it soon.

    Listen in to hear what we have to say about it.

    Zeiss Camera Lenses

    Both Alex and Mike are Canon shooters so it was great to finally talk about some Canon gear in Ben’s gear review. Well… Nearly… Both Alex and Mike wanted to talk about the range of Zeiss lenses and in particular the Distagon 21mm f2.8. Listen in to hear why this was and why you should pay more money for a Zeiss lens.
