It's that time again - New gear time!

Anyone that follows this blog will remember earlier this year I posted a sort of New Year’s resolution in terms of my photography. In that post I had a plan for the camera gear I was aiming for…. Well that post can be completely ignored and here’s why:

Not so long ago an online company called Studio22 was holding a competition to win a full frame camera. All you had to do to enter was make a purchase from their shop, and post your invoice number to their Facebook page. Fast forward a bit to July the 10th , and I get a call from Kurt (the owner) saying I’m a finalist in the draw, Shortly after I had won.

So here it is, my new 6D body:

Strobist gel packs

As mentioned in my previous post  I recently go myself a set of the awesome and amazing Strobist gel packs.  My reason for getting a pack, well who doesn't want to capture images like David Hobby ?

Whats Happening

Yet again I have been overly busy with all sorts of things lately (read work). However that hasn't stopped me from taking a few shots. Those who do follow me on Flickr, or even those that just glance over my stream every once in a while, will know that I have been uploading a few photos every so often. Posting to a blog takes time (effort, blood, sweat, tears... you get the idea) and Flickr is sometimes just quicker. However I think I need to get into the habit of coming over here and posting a few shots a bit more often!

Falling (fake) Rose and lighting set-up

I recently had an idea of dropping a rose with water droplets on it after hearing about one of the photo competitions for this month.

Without further ado here is one of my better test shots:

Enough about the world! Time for what you are really here about - Photography!
I have been slacking slightly over the past few months and havn't really posted anything up here. I have thought about it, I just never got around to it. I am going to change that over the next few days.
