the Lowepro Inverse 200 AW – a quick mini review

For years I have been buying different camera bags, and I am yet to find the perfect solution. I think I have found a near perfect solution as a ‘day pack’ or ‘travel pack’. In fact, I bought the inverse as it fits inside my carry on luggage when I am travelling, and is easy to use once at my destination, I also use it for around my home town, As it holds my DSLR and a second lens, filters, a bottle of water, my mobile phone, keys and stuff with ease! It can get a little heavy being a belt pack, I just use the shoulder strap that came with it and find that really helps to spread the load.

I also think the belt pack is a great way to carry all my lenses around if I was at an event or out shooting for the day, The lowepro inverse 200 AW would easily hold 3 zoom lenses if I didn’t need it to carry my DSLR and makes getting to my lenses a breeze. In fact I can fit my 16-35mm, 24-70mm and my 70-200mm in it (although it is tight with the lens hoods on). I would then just have my DSLR on my tripod or on my Rapid strap !

Lowepro are well known for making great quality gear, so it goes without saying that the inverse is great quality, where I find this pack differs from a lot of others I have used, it’s actually comfortable!

Here’s another of the Jetty at Port Macquarie. The colours in the sky kept changing so I have quite a few different compositions that I want to process… enjoy!

The Jetty

The early bird gets the worm

Or the early rising photographer hopes to get the sunrise! In photography there is what they call ‘the golden hour’, this happens twice a day, sunrise and sunset. During the middle of the day the sun is high and harsh and makes photo’s look flat and boring. During the golden hour, the sun helps the sky put on a display of colour that will attract oohs and ahhs!

Getting up early has not really been something I am a fan of, however, besides the benefit of the colour in the sky during sunrise, there are very few people up at that hour and it makes it easy to get landscape pics without people getting in the way, I am finding myself starting to really enjoy watching the sun rise!

the daily pic – the jetty

This is a classic example of the colour that can be found at sunrise. I took this on my recent motorcycle trip up the north coast, this is a jetty in Port Macquarie… enjoy!

Beautiful Sunrise in Port Macquarie

There are not too many more times in the day more perfect that sunrise. It is the hardest time to make sure I am up but definitely the most rewarding. The colours are just sensational and this photo showcases what an early morning has to offer. There were so many great spots for photo’s in Port Macquarie, I will have to get back there some day to shoot some more!

Under the Jetty at Port Macquarie

This shot is a classic example of HDR at work. To get this shot I took 7 exposures, and used four of them for the final image. This way I can get all the detail under the jetty PLUS get the beautiful colours of the sky all at the correct exposure.
