Being that it was election weekend, I was hiding from the polling madness. Here are some shots from around the place.
Caught this web at the Thousand Steps
in the Dandenongs. 16mm, f/2.8, background blur maxed out, ISO 200. Anyone who knows me will tell you how impressive it is that I went on this hike, fitness is not my thing. That being said I highly recommend it for a city getaway, just remember to take water, if you must take a camera then anything bigger than the NEX-5 will just weigh you down — I almost abandoned my DSLR on a hike once, the extra weight will get to you about halfway up, trust me.
While the country watched the election, we chilled out with some red and watched Wedding Crashers
. Such a good decision. 28mm (using the 18-55mm lens), f/4.0, ISO 1600, and most impressively — no tripod. The sharpness of this camera in low light is ridiculously good.
16mm, f/2.8, ISO 200, nice blur effect on the right side of the badge even though there isn't too much distance difference between the center and the edge.
A little self portrait, same settings as above. Check the detail in the shadow, nice!
