They may have received little press, but proposed drone laws expected to come in to force in the next few months mark the biggest change to Australia’s remotely piloted aircraft rules since consumer drones first began hitting the market in the first part of the decade. You can read about them in more detail on page 17, but in essence, chief among the changes will be a requirement for registration and certification for any operator of a drone weighing more than 250g - including anyone just flying as a hobby. Chances are if you’re a photographer with a drone, you’ll need to take notice.Like many photographers I have followed the advances in drone technology and the increase of drones in our skies closely. It’s been exciting to watch a technology…

TAMRON ANNOUNCES 35-150MM F2.8-4 DI VC OSD LENSTAMRON has announced the 35-150mm F2.8-4 Di VC OSD lens for Canon EF and Nikon F mounts.With a somewhat unusual focal length, and some bold claims from Tamron that the new lens is ‘effectively six primes in one’, the new 35-150mm is part of the trio of full-frame lenses announced by the company in February, which also includes two wide-angle lenses: the Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD and Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD zoom, with the 35-150mm taking up the mantle of Tamron’s flagship dedicated portraiture lens.Despite this we can’t imagine too many shooters will be ditching their primes just yet – as the new lens is relatively slow, dropping to f/3.5 at 85mm and f/4 at 150mm.On the technical side,…

South African photographer Jacques Van As may call Australia home now, but the 34-year-old's journey here was not a traditional one. Based in Brisbane for the last couple of years, Van As first lived in Sydney, via London and Johannesburg, his home town. He tells Australian Photography that his professional photography journey only really took off after moving to the Sunshine State, where he now specialises in landscapes, travel photography, portraiture and commercial video and photography work.Prior to considering taking up photography as a career, Van As worked in the audio visual scene in Europe, setting up stage lighting for music concerts and later at corporate trade events. A fortuitous meeting with a representative of an Australian audio visual company at a trade event in Amsterdam resulted in a job…

pro tips for curating your social media

Double tapping, swiping up and scrolling is something we all do daily (unless I’m just an addict!?) as we make our way through a visual library of talent from all corners of the world. When you’re transfixed within the bubble of content though, what is it that makes you stop and stare a little longer? Which images or profiles stand out immediately and have that initial wow factor? Instagram claims to have an average of 3.5 billion likes generated every day, so why not delve into why these likes are handed out so you can get a piece of the action for your photography!Analysing these factors is just the tip of forming a plan to curate your own work. Once you’ve assessed what makes you like a photo when scrolling…

tested: huawei p30 pro

Huawei’s P30 Pro comes with the bold catchline that it will ‘rewrite the rules of photography’, and although this might be a tad hyperbolic, there’s still a lot to like in this powerhouse device with the best smartphone camera we’ve used yet.DESIGNThe P30 Pro feels like you would expect a premium flagship to feel, with smooth curves and a classy curved rear glass panel.It measures 158 x 73.4 x 8.4mm, and while it may be thicker than both the Galaxy S10 Plus and iPhone XS Max, it doesn’t feel it. Visually this is helped by the almost bezel-less screen, like that on its sibling the Mate 30, with the P30 Pro also picking up the same curved Gorilla Glass glass style cover as found on the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.We…
