Somaemuldo Lighthouse

Somaemuldo Lighthouse
The Journey It had been a long journey to Somaemuldo, so I was relieved that it was a short trek around the island to this cliff side vantage point. Accessing the overlook required a bushwhacking but having checked out a few other spots below and above this one to set up my tripod, it was well worth it. The weather report was calling for rain..

Backcountry Camping & Photography in the Yeongnam Alps

Backcountry Camping & Photography in the Yeongnam Alps
It was to be my first wild camping trip in years and my first solo trip ever. My goal was to photograph some of the stunning vistas and avoid getting caught in a torrential down pour, which are near daily occurrences here in Korea during the rainy season. After a few weeks of waiting a couple of clear day and nights finally seemed to clear..

Haida ND 3.0 1000x (10 Stop) Filter Review

The Yeongnam Alps

The Yeongnam Alps
The Yeongnam Alps are a small mountain range in south eastern Korea, so named because its beauty supposedly reminds locals of the beauty of the European Alps. While this comparison may be a bit of stretch, given the sheer size difference of the two mountain ranges, there is no denying that the Yeongnam Alps are beautiful and a great place to..

Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk – Gyeongju

Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk – Gyeongju
Its been a long busy summer for me finishing up all my classes for my masters degree, which were followed quite promptly by the beginning of the academic year (a busy time for any teacher). Needless to say my blog has suffered a significant period of neglect as the result of this. While I have managed to make some time to keep shooting and..

The SensorKlear II by LensPen: A Review

The SensorKlear II by LensPen: A Review
Keeping your sensor clear and dust free can be a somewhat daunting task. Fear of damaging your camera is always there, leading many photographers to send out their gear to be professionally cleaned or to resort to never changing their lens outdoors. I’m neither of these photographers. Too cheap to send my kit out to Canon (I’d rather spend my..

Fotga 77mm ND Filter Sharpness Test

Fotga 77mm ND Filter Sharpness Test
About a year ago I wrote a review of the Fotga 77mm ND filter. Though this filter certainly wasn’t brilliant the ultra-low budget price certainly in my mind made up for its shortcomings, making it a product that I recommend for those shooters who don’t use a ND filter all that often and may not necessarily need the highest quality image. Since..
