Dee Why pictures

Published by under photography

Only have use of the Nikon D700 for another day or two, so I was keen to squeeze in one last shooting session. Decided to duck down to Dee Why to see what I could find. I like the challenge of photographing some place I see all the time. As usual, if you look, there are endless possibilities…

Picture taking in Sydney … again!

Published by under photography

Had to head over to Sydney for a couple press functions, so I took the Nikon D700 along for a bit of a play. Ended up grabbing a few snaps… (a great camera!)

Photo expedition to Sydney

Published by under Photo Review,photography

A few days ago I got my mitts on one of the new Nikon D700 full-frame DSLRs*. So, I loaded up a fresh battery and a blank CF card and went picture taking in Sydney…

The D700 turns out to be a lovely camera to work with. I was up and shooting without so much as a glance at the manual. And the image quality… wonderful!

For those of you interested in the tech stuff, I was using AFS Nikkor 24-120mm lens.

*I’ll be reviewing the D700 in due course, but if you’d like to learn more, then check out Margaret Brown’s comprehensive report on the Photo Review Australia website.

Lovely lines stack in at around 0900.

The crowd is there… but so are the waves this morning!
