One of my favourite things to do while in Zanzibar was to take my camera and just walk on the beach stopping from time to time to take in all the sights. There are plenty of things and people to photograph when you just sit down for a while and for the most part I was using my cheap Nikkor 70-300mm. For those of you that don’t know, it’s a great lens (very sharp), but it does tend to over-expose in a lot of situations. The cool thing about it is that you can take shots like below, from quite far.
On a different note, starting tomorrow I will be in Oman for three days doing the Faces and Places workshop with David Nightingale and Bobbi Lane. I’m really looking forward to this one as it’s right up my alley in terms of the themes we’ll be exploring. It’s all about travel photography, photographing the places as well as the faces belonging to Oman. I would like to try and blog a shot at the end of each day if time and Internet access will allow it.
