Canon’s Tales By Light

talesbylight01aUniting exploration, photography and the natural world, Tales by Light offers a rare glimpse into the eyes and minds of some of Australia and the world’s best photographic storytellers – Art Wolfe, Darren Jew, Krystle Wright, Richard I’Anson and Peter Eastway.

talesbylight01bShot in stunning 4K resolution, the six-part television series follows these five extraordinary photographers as they push the limits of their craft in little-known, little-covered and little-understood corners of the Earth.

Driven by an insatiable desire to explore cultures, wildlife and landscapes through the camera’s lens, they blur the lines between art and photography, showing us our world in a new light.

talesbylight01dProduced by Canon Australia and award-winning cinematographer Abraham Joffe, Season One was shot in 15 countries over the course of one year.

I Just Travelled 24.000km Through North America And Took Home These Incredible Pictures

I Just Travelled 24.000km Through North America And Took Home These Incredible Pictures
by Guido Diana

guidodiana01aMy name is Guido Diana and September 2016 I decided to fulfill my long life dream to travel and photograph North America. With more than 24.000 km traveled by air and road, I witnessed some of the most incredible scenery and adventures.

guidodiana01bDuring my three months of travel, I have seen the yellow aspen fall colors of Colorado, the incredible lakes of the Canadian Rockies, drove San Francisco’s Golden Gate bridge, Stood at the foot of the Grand Canyon, had an encounter with a wild grizzly bear and saw much more breathtaking views!

guidodiana01cWhat I saw in North America blew my mind, and in my opinion, this continent has some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. That’s why I want to share my 35 best shots of this trip with you.

Messenger Bags

Messenger Bags
They are fashionable for sure, but messenger bags are also practical and comfortable.
We review and rate eight bags, from six leading brands, at prices ranging from £60 to £180.

messengerbags01a messengerbags01b messengerbags01c messengerbags01d messengerbags01eHow we did the tests:
For our tests we used a three-lens outfit– a Canon EOS 5DMk III with EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS lens, plus EF17-40mm f/4L and EF70-200mm f/4LIS.

Dimensions given are those quoted by manufacturers,with the capacity simply WxHxD of the main compartment,converted to litres. Manufacturers’ figures can sometimes be misleading, with things like interior size given without removable compartments in place and weights quoted with all removable items taken out. Significant deviations are noted. For ratings, dual-purpose bags were judged primarily as camera bags,with secondary roles noted, but considered more of a bonus overall.
