Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Four Days, four christmas dinners and after having driven several hundred miles to visit family it's finally time to settle down at home for the remaining festive period and wish all of those who visit my site a very merry christmas and happy new year. I've been really lucky to receive some fantastic gifts this year, a large amount of which will help me further my photographic career in 2012. Really looking forward to blogging some reviews of the various additions to my kitbag over the coming months, including that of a Lee DSLR Filter Kit (including the 0.6 ND Hard Grad and a 0.6ND ProGlass filter).

One gift I had to try out was a 1/4" grid for my speedlites, which allow me to channel light and avoid spill. Unfortunately, (for Cleo's sake) she was looking rather pretty on the wooden floor of the dining room and fell subject to my next photograph. Perhaps I should of put a Santa hat on her...

Hope everyone is enjoying the last few remaining days of 2011, here's to a very promising 2012.
