Curl Curl – Fri, 31 July 2009 – 1515-1545

Shot an amazing number of pictures because it was very consistent and the light was excellent. If you were in the water at the south end of Curly between 1515 and 1545, there is a good chance I got at least one of your waves. These images can be enlarged quite a bit, so you can crop in on the subject and still get something good enough to use for a large print. That’s because they were shot with Nikon’s top of the range D3 professional camera and the equally top of the range 200-400mm zoom.

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.

Okay, here is another phone pic…
