I thought I wanted to try something slightly different for this Photo of the week and show you a real snapshot for once, showing a little bit of where I live. What I mean by “snapshot” is a photo that was born for no real reason other than just to take a photo of whatever […]

Here’s another photo of the week where it’s all about being in the right place at the right time. I can’t remember the last time I saw a rainbow in Malta – in fact, I can’t remember the last time I saw a rainbow anywhere and I had a camera handy. Needless to say, I […]

I forgot to put this one up yesterday, so even though I’m posting it this week it’s actually a picture for last week 🙂 Anyway – time’s not important. I didn’t get to shoot much last week but this is probably the one I like the most. I’m a complete newbiew when it comes to […]

I don’t get to experience much daylight during this time of year. In the mornings, sure, but that’s when I go to work – and when I leave work, it’s dark. So when I had to go out and play with my new Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 lens tonight, it was completely dark. In fact, darker […]

Last night we had some thunderstorms over Malta with a good amount of lightning as well and I’ve always wanted to get a really great shot of a lightning strike, so I figured I might as well begin to practice and figure out how to do it. At first I stepped outside on the patio […]

This is just a short “first impressions” review of the Sony Cybershot HX5V digital camera with GPS. I’m not going to go much into details and technical analysis, there are many other photo review blogs out there doing a much better job at that, than I would probably ever be able to do. Here’s a […]

It’s Friday and that calls for a new Friday Flick Find video. I figured, since the Pope (Benedict XVI) will be visiting Malta this weekend, that the video for today should be something about Malta. Just so we’re clear, this video has nothing to do with the Pope (I’m not going to have some crazy […]

A few days ago I recieved a Tamron A17 70-300mm lens for my Nikon D5000. The full name is Tamron AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro. I don’t know enough about DSLR shooting to determine whether or not the lens is any good, but for the price of less than $200, I’m quite satisfied with it. […]
