I am not entirely satisfied with the quality of my night shots with my new camera, so I went out and did a bit more practice. Still more practice required!


14 October 2018

At this time in 2 weeks from now I will be in Japan messing about with my new camera and climbing things, until then I cant seem to stop taking photos of things on or near the Ocean around Melbourne.


12 October 2018

2 weeks until I go to Japan, still learning the new camera, so I went to take photos of boats at the very quiet are of Melbourne Docklands. It is very unlikely I will take photos like this in Japan.

A few more shots from my new Sony, messing about with lightroom, after taking these photos I bought a new wrist strap.

These are the first photos I took with my new a7ii, I had no editor so they are all straight out of camera jpegs resized in This probably does not show off the full frame fancy lens optically stabalised shenanigans.
