Duy @ Melbourne 16.07.16

sixteen, 7, two thousand and sixteen. My mate and i went up to melb, we split our ways after we got off the train. he wanted to do his own thing, and i wanted to do my own. roamed around MC mostly and did street photography. It feels better being by myself taking photos, didnt have to annoy my friend or anything. felt good.

I used the Fuji XT1, 18mm f2 and the 34mm f1.4. for the good half i sued the 18mm, which wasnt bad nor good. i just found majority of the time im to far away from the subject or the picture is to big, but it was handy doing close up. the second better half i had the 35mm 1.4, it allowed me to be more stealthy as im further away from the subject but still retained a smaller image than the 18mm. ironic isnt it? i purchased the 18mm for street photography but ended up liking the 35mm more.

Duy @ Otways

heyyyyyyyyyyyy, back again. Otways ( and twelve apostles) on 30.5.16. Traveled with my two mates, Jordan and Nemo. It was around a 2 and a half hour drive from Geelong or where i live. Best part of the trip? redwoods. Worse part? probably apostles. i found it very dull and what ever, maybe because im to comfortable with Aus? Wasnt anything jaw dropping. Gibson steps was more interesting IMO, seeing the rock solid wall being carved out by water, now that is amazing. It would be very unAustralian if you didnt visit those places at least once. Also had a chance of using my film camera, Nikon F5. Managed to lose the eye piece somehow, it was screwed on but this morning when i checked, just wasnt there. FILTERS ARE A MUST! always have a filter on your lenses, it is convenient, it protects your lens from dust/scratches, didnt have time to put lens cap back on, but that doesnt matter cause the filter is protecting it.

Here is the terrible photo of the gear i brought:
