We went back down to the farm but not before we bought a new camera. It’s a Canon EOS 600D and so light compared with our Canon EOS 1D MKII. It’s a lot less obtrusive so much better for taking into restaurants and venues and there’s a fantastic light balance feature that helps you shoot in very low light without the use of a flash. That feature is being well used with our current short days.
Heading back into the country gave us the perfect opportunity to try out the new camera. Carl has always thought of himself as a bit of a farm boy and he thought of his time there as going back to his roots.
He was very enthusiastic about taking images of the farm and I think here he has captured something of what it is to be an Aussie on the land – it’s definitely a great lifestyle but not for the faint-hearted. All images have been shot using Carl’s favourite lens called a Lensbaby and it blurs the edges around the image.
So we’re now shooting with our new Canon camera and enjoying how advanced and light it is compared with our former heavy-weight dinosaur model.
