Whilst the harsh Australian sun might be a curse for outdoor photos because of the high contrast shadows, it does have one great advantage........high shutter speeds. With high shutter speeds, because of the extra light beaming through your lens, you can capture some fun and interesting high speed action shots. Usually you'll want to use a shutter speed above 1/1000th second to try and get your subjects as still as possible, but sometime using slower speeds can also be effective for creating some motion blur. The Canon 60d is more than capable of capturing fast moving action, as well when you use it with a non kit lens such as the Sigma 17-50 f2.8 OS. I really like this combination for everyday photography, unless I'm using the x100s which is life changing. Enjoy.
