My first periscope experience

Today I tried Periscope for the first time. Periscope is a new video app by Twitter.

I was on a walk around Lake Ginninderra again when I received a notification from a Star Trek friend in the USA. She was capturing her cat licking itself. I thought I’d show a bit of my walk.

The continuous bracket exposure 0.3 EV on my Sony alpha 7S

This morning I went for a walk around Lake Ginninderra and while I was walking I started playing with the menu on my Sony α7S. While I was stepping through the shooting menu to change from timer (I’d be using the Sony for some food photography as work) to single shot my finger slipped and I noticed more options in this menu. I came across an option for continuous bracket exposure 0.3 EV. I also noticed I could change that to 3 or 5 shots and change the exposure increment from 0.3 to 0.5 to 0.7 to 1 to 2 EV.

Summer has returned to Lake Ginninderra

Summer has returned. The last few weeks have been cold in Canberra with some mornings less than 10 °C. It’s one of the awful things about living at 600 m above sea level and about 300 km inland. It’s been cold and dry, just awful.

Going for a walk around Lake Ginninderra this morning was just great. Clear skies and so peaceful.
