Life Enlarged – Exploring Gerroa at Sunset Through a Big Zoom
About 90% of the shots that I take are usually with a wide angle lens because I like fitting a lot of landscape into that frame. However I just added a 400mm telephoto lens to my kit lens which is amazing and, since my Fujifilm X-T4 is a cropped sensor camera the actual focal length of the new lens is 600mm. That means you can get wildlife much larger in the frame, but it also opens up amazing new possibilities for landscape photography that I am keen to explore. These shots were all taken today – the bird images in the back garden and everything else at Gerroa.
Seven Mile Beach at Gerroa is my ‘go to’ beach as it’s a short drive from my house and offers a flexible number of landscapes in one small area. You can shoot on the beach, on the reserve by the boat ramp, over the rocks behind Crooked River or round the corner at Black Head.
