Watch the birdie

To quote a very common phrase, I'll leave this here. Taken at a local garden center.

Photo retouchers get CONFUSED when they get hungry

Little things amuse me...

Sometimes you hear about certain things that go in the advertising industry, where models are seen with ridiculously extra long or extra thin body parts (all thanks to bad editing in Photoshop). However, Snickers released an advert in which the editors were obviously not feeling themselves... Go check out the link...

Kitty - Urbex Shoot

Given that December is usually cold, wet and windy, it came as a big surprise when the sun came out, it warmed up and the wind calmed down to nothing more than a strong breeze. Having already arranged a shoot together, all of this came as a big bonus. I think the pictures speak for themselves - good weather, great model and the first serious set of photos taken with the new beast....

And with regards to the new beast - I can't believe the difference between it and the old camera - apart from the increased resolution, the clarity and sharpness of the pictures is like night and day.
