When I got my new camera a few months ago, I think many of you will remember how much fun I was having with the 14-24mm lens on the full framed Nikon D800. I have shown you some of the photos that I took of the bluestone building that belongs to Deaf Children Australia. It is fantastic to have a building like this to go to and take photos of anytime I like really.
One of the things that is fantastic about that lens is that it allows you to get angles that wouldn’t be able to get otherwise. Though not with the photo above, this is a fairly standard image. I have played with it some. Trying to make the image look like it was older, or maybe just playing.
They want me to tell you about a DVD that they have produced, it is called “Behind the Bluestone” and is full of footage from the school and stories by people who went there. It is very inexpensive at $15 and a great way to support Deaf Children Australia. If you are interested in purchasing it then you should go to this link, click here.
I believe more restoration work will beginning soon, so it will be good to see more happening there. Don’t forget you can also donate money to Deaf Children Australia and there is a donate button on their website.
I am going to put in a small gallery with some other images, one of them is a tree, but if you look carefully you can see the children at the school have hung hands in the tree. You can also see some of the angles I was talking about. I also love how much of a room you can fit into an image with the lens, the room being what was the girls dormitory now the boardroom.
