I've been very busy these last few weeks with custom orders. I love custom orders - making that special something for someone and having it come out just as they want. However, it doesn't leave a lot of time for much else, especially when you work, exercise and have a family as well!
However I took a little time out today to play a little with my camera. Something I've been wanting to do for a long time - well since we bought it really. Earlier this year after a pretty frustrating experience trying to take photos of our friends kids with our old camera I pursuaded Mark that what I really needed was a digital SLR. We spent weeks looking (the one condition of getting it was that I had to throughly research it, not impulse buy as is my usual style - I want it, I must have it NOW) and after much research, reading reviews and trying them out we ended up with an Olympus E520. All in all I'm pretty rapt with it, the only thing I don't like is that it seems to take dark shots at times - however I'm pretty convinced that's got more to do with the photographer than the camera!! Next year I am determined to find some time to really read the manual properly, practice more with it and possibly attend a nightclass on photography.
