A couple of days ago I was loaned the new Nikon camera, the D500, from Nikon Australia. It is Nikons new flagship DX camera and last night I took it into the city for a test drive, so to speak. It is really incredible. I keep finding things on it that make me say wow.
With the camera we walked along the river getting some photos as the sun went down. It was meant to be a good one, well, so I thought, but as you will see wasn’t so great. However, I was taking photos in some places I haven’t done before, so that was good. I think I need to do more of that.
Now before we go to the photos, I have to tell you that I’ve been published in an Australian Photography Magazine. I’ve been a fan of Better Photography from almost when it began, and of course, Peter Eastway, has always been one of the my photography heros, might even meet him one day. The article is on using photography for conservation, and relates to the book I have just done. Click here if you would like more information.
Here is a small selection of photos from the trip last night. All taken with the Nikon D500 and mostly using the 14-24mm lens. It was a stunning night for photography, well besides the flies earlier on and then the mozzies (mosquitoes). They were in full force. We put on some much insect repellent, it was horrible without it. I will leave you with my sunset photos.
