Was a good little catchup, and was awesome to see the young guys trying out their hand and the old hands at their craft.

These are what I got for taking about 20 photos in all, I had way too much fun catching up and being lighting bitch for Matt for a short while.

So guys who were there, Please chuck your photos in here!

Better not be selling those pics to the highest bidder online.. :shock: :neutral:


Did some rigs out in the pouring rain (BecauseShowingOff) and the 60D got absolutely drenched, wont be trying that again.... until I get a 5D MkIII :P But seeing the result of this Evo shot was definitely worth the risk

Great pics Steve, really like the interior shot of the 180 & love your wrx! :-o

Sweet edit Paolo, actually really impress with the editing, color is good, not too bright and you even straightened the image.

Nicholas you're probably the 6th person to ask me :???:, my rig cost about $500 all up with stuff from the US + a custom/ DIY pole. but I also needed to buy a new lens as it wasn't wide enough costing another $600
