Dust represents danger for photographers and their equipment


The recent dust storms have drown countless people to photograph this unusual for Sydney weather phenomenon. It has to be said the dust represents not only danger to the health of the photographers but it also represents real danger to their equipment. The dust is reported to be finer than talcum powder and thus has the capacity to enter your camera and lens. It would be very difficult if not impossible to remove. If you are photographing the dust storm scenes cover your camera as much as possible, including the lens, and reduce the duration of exposure to the weather.

Making a movie


I notice more and more film makers in the streets of Sydney. These people are using entry level or high end professional cameras and are obviously very dedicated to their art. It is interesting that in a stark contrast to photography the average person in the crowd is totally oblivious to film makers but often question photographers. Does anyone know what YouTube is?
