Following a rather half-arsed wander around my town's new Woolworthes replacement - the prestiogous 99p store - I stumbled upon something quite magnificent. You may remember a post I made last month about the disappearance of my favourite sweets. Well, I am proud to announce, Bassetts now sell a very similar product under the name 'Bassetts Allsorts - Red Liquorice'.

I got a few new toys for my Birthday, adding to my ever-growing lighting setup. I'm still a noob when it comes to off-camera lighting but I'm learning more every day and this kit should keep me occupied for a while.

I've neglected my photography a bit recently, so I decided to post a few pictures I took yesterday. I'm into wide-angle shots in a big way and shoot mostly at the widest angle I currently possess, the 18mm end of my 18-15mm kit lens. As you may know I am also a bit advocate of off-camera flash. The following shots are an example of both.

For those who don't know what an ATV is, the following picture will probably tell you. It's also known as a quad bike. I had my first real go on one of these today and as it was a bright sunny day I got out my camera and put the lens between me and the vehicle.
