After the summer break it is time to pump up the revs and head flat out through Eau de Rouge and Raidillon.
With this bread you will be on pole position.
Baquette, mayo, burger beef, home made fries, fresh chili, parsley and hollandaise (despite I'm not a fan of Max)
Eat this slowly, like Williams drivers eats miles on track.
This photo is shot with Sony A7RIII and Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art Series lens a.k.a. the money maker.
As a photographer who travels a lot, I am always seeking for products that will make my life easier.
This is not a payed promotion, and not even a new product, but I haven´t heard about it before.
When staying in hotels, there is always too few power outlets to charge all batteries and devices.
I used to carry an extension cord with multiple sockets when ever I was travelling.
But now I found a perfect substitute, it is called PowerCube™ USB
It splits a standard ac outlet to four outlets, and has two usb-ports.
So I can charge my laptop, camera, strobes, powerbank, iPhone and iPad simoultaneously.
It is small and light weight, a perfect gadget for a traveller.
You can find your from here.
And people at Allocacoc, collaboration is possible :)
The wait is over, Sigma Art lenses for full frame Sony E-mount cameras are here.
I have used Sigma Art lenses with my Sony for a few years now. The lenses are sharp and have a nice bokeh, but still they were not perfect.
There were no lenses for full frame e-mount Sonys, hence I had to use Canon EF-mount with a adaptor.
Although Sigma's adaptor is best in the market, yet it felt a bit clumsy and its performance was not as good as it good be.
But now all this has all changed.
I am not going bore you with all those fancy tech specs, the internet is full of sites with diagrams and numbers on how lenses perform. I will speak from my own experience, what is the look and feel from my perspective.
After testing these lenses about a month, I can say I am super happy. They are sharp right from wide open aperature, focus is fast and accurate and build quality is good and solid.
I have tested 20,35 and 50mm f/1.4 lenses. All photos I took are work related, unfortunately and I can´t publish those yet.
But I did some test shots on a summer house to give you few examples.
I also have the new 70mm f/2.8 macro. Haven´t been able to test it properly, but I can say it is a true money maker for
Norway is a beautiful country and it is just perfect for photographers who loves road trips.
Here is five tips that will help you to get most out of your journey.
1. Dont rush.
Driving in Norway will take time. Scenic routes are narrow and curvy, it can take three hours to drive 100km. And there is going to
be so much things to photograph so thrust me, it will take time.
2. Sleeping in your car.
If possible, I will suggest this option. There is plenty of rest stops where you can sleep, and many of those have clean toilets.
If you have a camper van you have even more possibilities. I have slept in my Range Rover, four night in car, one in motel,
four nights in car, and so on.
3. Norway is expensive.
It is not a secret that Norway is expensive. I always have plenty of camping food with me. What I have noticed, southern parts
seems to be more expensive than north.
4. Take a ferry.
Sometimes you have to, since it is not possibly to easily drive from one place to other. Sometimes it is nice to take a break and enjoy
of fresh sea breeze. Most of the ferries cost around 100-200NOK but there might be ferries that cost over 800NOK so make some
research to avoid surprises.
5. Have a drone.
There is so much to photograph, but some places are impossible to access. Drone gives you so much more possibilities.
Just remember that maximum altitude is 120m and beware of the birds, some of them might see drone as their enemy.
It is time for German Grand Prix in legendary Hockenheim track.
German is know of its sausages, so it was quite ease to decide what kind of bread I would make for this event.
Get a rustic bun, fry some onions, fry two bratwurst sausages and make dijon mayonnaise (half/half) and your are good to go!
