I have access to a huge range of incredible photographic tools – Canon Full Frame and Olympus m4/3 systems, video cameras, many lenses, flashguns, filters, tripods… but on holidays this Christmas all I’ve brought along is the Leica D-Lux (Type 109, aka Panasonic LX100).
I use the bigger equipment for work, and I enjoy my work, but this holiday is about the family. It’s about getting out on our 30 year old trailer boat, riding some bicycles, walking along the beach, swimming and surfing and drinking and eating too much.
The sort of things most Australians do at Christmas.
So I brought along the little Leica, a polarising filter and a tripod (which are the first two accessories I recommend to anyone taking up photography – before you buy a second lens, buy a tripod).
Anyway, I’ll publish a few images here and maybe I’ll even talk about how they were captured.
