Scotland photos
5 lovely days in Scotland and I finally got to see puffins in the wild!

See pictures here. Read the short blog and see the itinerary here.

Lonely Planet bought a photograph I made
This picture of school kids in Mzuzu, Malawi was published in The Africa Book, a new type of book by Lonely Planet.

Photography links

  This is the best photography site I've been able to find so far. It's full of product reviews and comparisons, and has some excellent non-biased tips on choosing the right equipment.
  Looking for a new camera? Here you can fill out all the criteria that are important to you (Buying Guide - Features Search) and it will come up with several cameras that fit your needs. It also contains owners' reviews.

I just love the pictures these people made in South America.

For all you fellow photography nerds who wonder what equipment I use...

June 2004 - up until now
Canon EOS 300D / digital Rebel

> an oldie... so I am now debating whether to upgrade to a newer model SLR, or a compact travel camera...

lense: f/3.5 - 5.6 / 18 - 270 mm Tamron lense (2009 - now)

I love my new flexible lense that ranges from wide angle to super zoom! (18 - 270 mm). It comes in so handy when travelling and it also allowed me to take way more pictures, whereas in the past I'd have simply not taken them because of the hassle of changing lenses. It was fun to shoot wide angle landscapes of a beautiful sunset, then zoom in for a close up, then zoom back out... Playtime galore!

I keep the UV filters on all the time because several sources tell me it makes no difference. (And if it does, I will probably not be able to see it anyway, being an amateur and all.)

iPhone 4

I also like to challenge myself and take a lot of pictures with my iPhone 4, which of course has a lot of limits.
