    Here are two photos I took on the weekend while in lancelin. The photos aren't that great, as It was the first time I had used my camera. The camera is an EOS 300D. The first photo has been reduced. The second, cropped and reduced.

    How many of you out there use filters on your digicam. I'm considering adding a polarizing filter and/or UV filter to my G2 for outdoor shots but want to know if it will really make that much of a difference.

    Cheers

    Mmmm, nice pussies :)

    Nice pussies Farmboy :)

    What camera and lense are you using. They are very sharp. I am guessing its a DSLR from the pretty shallow depth of focus in those shots. Very nice shots.

    Audiobuzz - I use both UV and circular polarizing lenses on most landscape shots - it's great for reducing glare from leaves/water/clouds (pretty much any reflective surface) and allows the true colors to become more prominent.

    More snaps!

    Well my name is james, and ive been what I call "semi-pro" for over a year. Ive worked alongside press and freelance, and i freelance now more than anything.

    spare time, i dont really get much of that :p , but when I do, I tend to spend my time doing landscapes and architectual abstracts.

    I've always been a big fan of macro shots, so I decided to get off my arse and take some shots with the macro mode on my a40. I got a few decent results, but this one is by far my favourite. I think it turned out pretty well. A few things could have been improved with the composition I think - it would have been better if the top flower was angled more towards the camera, and if the centre of it was a bit yellower to contrast the bottom one a bit more. Overall though, I'm very happy with this one.
