After a few nail biting hours, the server move has gone well. No-one can ever predict what will happen… there were a few ‘glitches’ and you may still see a few odd things around the site like a broken link or video not working. In the main, it looks like we have everything up and running again. So you may be wondering why I would bother moving to this new server… after all, everything looks the same. Well sort of, the old site was very restrictive, and when I started nearly a year ago I had no idea the blog would become so popular… I have had over 40,000 visits since I started and get between 150 and 200 new visitors every day. As the traffic grows so does the need for the site to be more robust, and have a secure backup.
The second reason was I want do bring you more. And make it fun and easy to get around at on3legs.com… so I have a new site coming. You should see the new site in the next week or two, we’re just testing it now and as long as it all goes to plan, we will launch it soon!
Thanks for your patience and hopefully it will make it easier for both of us in the future!
Very rarely do I come across an unfriendly person at a church… they’re always happy to let me walk around freely and take pics… churches have the most amazing architecture….

Just a quick heads up… I have updated my camera’s page. It has a list of cameras that I am using, or have used in the past, I guess you can call them reviews, but I like to just call it giving you my opinion. I will add more info as time goes on so it’s a good time to check back every now and then to see if anything has changed!
I found this tree in the gardens surrounding Government house in Sydney. I just loved the way it was all ‘twisted’… It seemed to have grown into two trees and was huge… the sun was just poking through the leaves but the canopy on this tree was thick… making it the perfect shady spot on a warm day!
I have just finished putting together the final touches of my free online HDR tutorial. I believe this is the most comprehensive free HDR tutorial on the web… CLICK HERE to check it out. I re-worked an image I took on easter sunday 2012 with my D700 and documented step by step what I do to create a HDR photo. I hope you like it… feel free to share it around!
A short stroll with lot’s to see! Welcome to the first On3legs photowalk for 2013. Once again I am teaming up with Rob Potter from photographyhotspots.com for this walk. We will meet and greet out the front of Sydney’s Luna Park at 630pm and slowly make our way around to Kirribilli to watch the sun set behind the Harbour Bridge… EVERYONE is welcome.. no matter your skill or your camera.
The walk is all about caputuring some images, learning, meeting great similar minded people but most importantly having some fun! :)
Whenever I see something like this I just have to stop and capture it…
I know, I have rattled on a fair bit about this camera in the past few months, but I do really think these mirrorless wonders will supersede the DSLR, especially for the majority of the market… I think they call them prosumers… anyway, to me it’s anyone that bought a DSLR for the convenience of interchangeable lenses and of course, the image quality.
The downside of the DSLR is the bulk and the weight, and this has been fixed with the mirrorless camera. The Fuji X-E1 I can carry with me all day, I don’t feel like I am weighed down, even the bag I have for it is small, and is easy to carry all day! In the past, it was a trade off, the heavier it got, the better the image quality.. the lighter, the less image quality and things like shutter lag etc. etc…. The mirrorless camera is lighter, almost like a point and shoot… yet it still has superb image quality! So you can have your cake and eat it too!
If you want to read my review on the X-E1 CLICK HERE to go there now…
This is a HDR image I have taken with the Fuji X-E1. It is 3 exposures. I had the Fuji mounted on a tripod, and it is really easy to manually do the bracketing by moving the EV dial in between shots. Sure, it would be nice if there was a function for the camera to take bracketed shots at a spacing of 2ev… maybe in a future firmware upgrade (hopefully you’re reading this Fuji R&D). For now, this is a good solution and probably the easiest out of any of the mirrorless camera’s I have seen.
