From the Festival to the Circus: Spending 48 hours with the Canon EOS 700D

I've been running the AU review for over 6 years now. During that time we've had over a hundred photographers come through our doors around the country - probably more... and though I've been behind plenty of video cameras, I've never dabbled much in photography myself. It can't be that hard can it? Well, the folks at Canon took me up on that very challenge and set me up with their entry level DSLR- the EOS 700D - to answer that question for myself.

Festival Review: The Blurst of Times - The Factory Theatre, Sydney (25.10.14)

Guitars and subverted Simpsons t-shirts ruled Blurst of Times' Sydney debut. Its debut went off without a major hitch, even with some last minute timetable shuffling to adjust to. With The Factory Theatre proving to be a perfect space for the event, triumphing over the aural assault that marred OutsideIn last year. This was accomplished without actually putting the Factory Theatre stage to use, utilizing the smaller Fusebox and Factory Floor stages, and the smart move of setting up a main stage outside. Pushing revelries out in to the open air and giving itself a true festival atmosphere.
