    Snowy Mountains

    Beautiful shots mate. Did you take these handheld? I'd imagine it would be pretty hard to use a tripod in this snow.

    Switching from crop-senson (600D) to 5D Mark II, need lens help.

    So I'm pretty much set on the 17-40mm L and 85mm 1.8. What I'm still tossing up between is whether to get the 24-105/24-70/70-200 f4. This is mainly used for everyday use, as well as it would be an important part of my portrait work when the 85mm focal length will not work. What are your takes...

    Rough Seas - Cape Shanck

    Thanks mate! I agree, it's not perfect. I did have more foreground, but it was rather bland and I had to crop it out. Maybe this one is a better one for giving you that feeling of the incoming storm (see clouds top right). I do like the composition on this better, and if the original one I...

    Switching from crop-senson (600D) to 5D Mark II, need lens help.

    Thanks for the advice guys.. definitely taking it all on board! In relation to crop vs non-crop sensor, what is equivalent to 10mm on my 600D on a full-frame body? I.E. Is the 17-40mm just as wide at 17mm on a full-frame than as 10mm is on a crop sensor? EDIT: Also with the 70-200mm, is there...

    I was looking on ebay and the cheapest I saw was $1990 or something very close to that, and it was from Hong Kong.

    Switching from crop-senson (600D) to 5D Mark II, need lens help.

    Hey guys, I'm going to be selling my 600D and moving to a 5D Mark II.. thus I'll need to be changing some lenses. I'm heading over to the USA and Canada in Summer for a few month to visit all the awesome national parks, and I need to have my camera bag sorted by then. My passion is landscape...

    Prices of 5D Mark II in USA?

    Hey everyone, I'm heading to the USA and Canada for a few months in June to hit up all the awesome national parks and I'm tossing up whether to buy a 5D Mark II here in Aus used (can get one in good condition with relatively low shutter count for about $1700), or buy a new one when I arrive in...

    SD Card question

    I definitely agree, I'd rather stick to well known and trusted brands, hence why I've linked a Kingston SD card. I'm just fairly uneducated in the differences between SD cards features and hoping that this card I linked would serve well with a 600D/5D Mark II for both photography and 1080p video.

    SD Card question

    Yes I use it with a 600D currently, but will be upgrading to a 5D Mark II sometime within the next few months, so I hope for it to work for my intended purposes with that too. If not, please impart any knowledge you may have in regards to a more suitable card that doesn't cost much more :)

    SD Card question

    Hey everyone, heading overseas soon and need a few new SD cards so I have plenty of storage. I will be able to back up my photos once every 2-3 days I'd imagine. Would these be a good card to use? eBay Australia: Buy new & used fashion, electronics & home d I was thinking of getting 2-3 of...

    Professional photographers - props/wardrobe.

    Hey everyone, I'm interested to hear from the pros exactly how you all acquire props/wardrobe for photoshoots? I have been viewing many photographers shots, and seen them with various props and different costumes that I wonder how on earth they have such a variety of things (in my head I'm...

    Single EX430 lighting setup (for now).

    Really? I have a 600D (t3i), so that would be awesome if it works that way and I don't have to fork out more cash for a controller. Any tips on how to set this up?

    Single EX430 lighting setup (for now).

    Thanks for the tip. I've read about this, but how exactly do they work?

    Single EX430 lighting setup (for now).

    Hey everyone.. I'm interested in setting up a basic studio photography space. I'm wondering how I can best take advantage of my current gear (a single EX430), and what I should get to get the most out of it? I was thinking maybe a white umbrella for the EX430, a reflector and stand for it so it...

    Evening at the beach.

    I used a gradual ND filter. 2 stacked in fact lol. The sky was simply not very good that day, and as such I had to boost the saturation more than I would usually. I have a lot of shots from this set that are long exposures (2-15 seconds or so) like you said, but they are just flat and boring...

    Evening at the beach.

    What do you think? I'm not entirely happy with the composition, and the sunset wasn't great that night.. but I still think it came out OK.

    Panorama - Which is better and how to improve?

    Yeah I'll definitely go back for a re-shoot sometime soon. It's only about 30-40 minutes away. I'll take the filters this time. I agree with the rule of thirds too mommy. The only reason I kept this cropped this way was there was at least some colour in the top part of the sky, and when I...
