I’ve tried planning trips before and then lockdowns happened. The trip was postponed. We planned again, another lockdown. In the end, we gave up.
Yesterday we looked at some videos on the impact of tourism, so today I thought we could look at 7 tips for photographing around home. This is a topic I’m actually really passionate about.
While there are lots of positives about travelling, there are also lots of hassles. It doesn’t matter how well you plan there are things that don’t understand your plan.
It has to be said that there a lot of upsides to being a middle aged photographer these days. I know there are downers, but lots of uppers as well. Believe me, there are.
The question of whether or not I am really a traveller is something I’ve asked myself a lot. Do I really want to travel? Do I need it for my photography?
A couple of weeks ago I did a post on the Fujifilm X-T3 camera, but while I was using it I was also trying out their lenses for my trip to New Zealand. When it was organised, I asked if I could borrow 3 lenses from Fujifilm Australia to use.
One of the pieces of gear that Blonde Robot loaned me for my trip to New Zealand was the Punk Billy Tripod from 3 Legged Thing. I was give the option of a couple to choose from their range and thought the Billy would be a good fit.
Recently I was holidaying around the South Island of New Zealand with the X-T3 from Fujifilm. It was great having it with me and seeing what I could do with it.
Though I usually do something from the past for my Silent Sunday posts, I thought it might be nice to look at the images I got of That Wanaka Tree while in New Zealand. There were a few.
This is my last post for my New Zealand wanderings here and we spent Day 16 in Christchurch. This morning we set off to walk around the city centre and see what we could find.
