cameras in Fed Square

Everybody thinks they're a photographer. Truth is, it isn't that hard to get a good shot these days, with some of the amazing cameras that have been coming out over the last few years. Many professional photographers are worried that their days are numbered. And they have every reason to be worried. Uncle Bob with his brand new Canikon can sometimes get a totally pro brilliant shot. Sometimes. I see it as incentive to raise the bar a couple of notches. Get the shots that Uncle Bob can't. And get them every time without fail, when it really matters. Uncle Bob will get lucky every now and then. Good on you Uncle Bob!
I've got quite a few lucky shots. The more I practice and refine my craft, the luckier I get.

One of about 30 shots that really worked for this wedding. Rom and I used to dread beach weddings, but after dozens of tests and lighting experiments, now we pretty much specialise in them!

Another iPhone photo. This is the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur just after sunset. An amazing building.

Sunset in Samporna shot with my iPhone.
We went diving in Sipadan the next day.
I can't explain how amazing that was. If I had a waterproof housing for my iPhone I would have gone nuts with shots.
Thanks to Scuba Junkies in Samporna!

just one thanks

I'm pretty sure they were serious about this offer.
Shop in Sandakan.

gift shop at Sandakan Airport in Borneo.

Can't really think of a more inappropriate item to sell at an airport gift shop.

I think he's done a pretty good job with the eyes!

I shot this on my iPhone during my last night in Kuala Lumpur. Nobody else seemed to see the irony of the situation.

By some miracle it stopped pouring with rain every time we stopped the limo to take a shot. And as soon as we got back in the car it started raining again. The clouds were so awesome that day.

Outside Flinders Street

Rom and I always wanted to do a shot with the Fliders Street clocks in the background, and we finally got the chance. Thanks Jennifer, you guys were so great!

Me and Patrick from Stillmotion down at Fed Square after the Melbourne Stillmotion Experience. We did pretty good with the challenges, with our team getting first place in both of them.
