So on into the second half of the year as part of the Year Review series.
All blogs can be seen here for July, but here are a few that might whet your appetite to revisit or see for the first time for any of our newer readers.
Dave did a review of his Nikon 200-400VRf4 - a great lens and one that many Canon users would like to have. But as usual Canon only have marketeers rather than ears that listen to photographers - so we will continue to wait in vain.
July was a great month for macro work in the UK as all the various bugs, butterflies and damsels came out to play.
I finally found the way to unlock 1024 x 768 pixel res on my Samsung netbook, which meant I could use some other software to herlp processing and screen calibration.
On Tips and techniques, we covered wireless off camera flash here and here, I did a bit on Hightlight Tone Priority and Dave looked at AF assist points.
John Bulpitt was our first Guest Photographer and sent us a fascinating article on storing images on the move, along with some great images.
Finally, the story here about a persistent pair of Great Crested Grebes was one of my favourite stories of the year.
