Fiji Book: Kokoda Recipe + Free eBook

Thought we would share one of our yummy recipes from our popular book "Fiji Islands -The Heart of the South Pacific." The book has been selling in Fiji at many resorts and all major retail outlets for just over a year now. As part of this blog post we have created a sample version of the eBook which you can download for free here.

Kokoda (pronounced ko-kon-da) is a Fijian fish dish and one of our favourites. Every visit to Fiji we make sure we eat it as often as possible. It utilises common ingredients of the islands which can be found in most supermarket and stores around the world.

Sydney Photo Walk - May 2015

We have been having some shocking weather here in Sydney over the last couple of weeks. The Superstorm that we had almost 2 weeks ago left a trail of damage in many suburbs in the city. Since then almost every day has been gray, overcast or raining however this did not stop us going ahead with our Photo Walk on Saturday the 2nd May and although the attendance was small we obtained some great images of interior architecture throughout the city.

Filters - The Polarizer

The CPL (Circular Polarizer) essential filter for anyone that that shoots landscapes or travel. Over the years we have worked a lot in the Pacific Islands and this filter practical lives on the lenses. It is great for images where you want to darken skies giving it more drama and emphasizing the clouds, to cut through reflections off glass, or reduce glare from the surface of water or the sea. It also saturates colours to make the scene more vibrant, especially blue skies, bodies of water and foliage. It is one of the few filters that has not really been properly replicated in software.
