It’s seems like an age since I bought my Canon 400D, but it’s only been about 6 months.  Due to other, more pressing matters though, I’ve not really used it very much.

A subscription to Digital Photo magazine has given me lots of food for thought on the ideas for things to try out when I do get time to give it a proper test drive.

One thing which caught my eye, was a technique to jazz up your pictures which were taken on overcast days.  As hard as it is to believe, we have a few of those each year up here in Scotland so I thought I would try it out with a picture of my own rather than using their templates.

I bought a new camera just before Christmas - I’ve been wanting one for ages and as it was the cheapest of the long list of gadgets I’ve been lusting after I thought I’d take the plunge.

I was really wanting a Canon 40D which is a digital SLR type camera, but eventually settled on the cheaper Canon 400D which is pretty much the same only different - as in it lacks some of the features of the more expensive 40D but will probably do me just fine.
