Review of the Year Part 4 - April

So if you are reading this on Christmas Day - well Happy Christmas.

Looking back to April, I can see Dave had a great trip to the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee and reported the trip here, here and here. I stayed closer to home and had a day out in Gloucestershire with my buddy Robbie.

On Tips and Techniques we covered on board flash here and here, and I also showed how to use the camera technology to capture close up shots of butterflies when they are on plants flapping about in the wind.

I have loved my Samsung netbook that I bought back in February - It has been a brilliant tool and I thank Joe Fox for flagging these up to me earlier in the year.  I showed in this post how to screen colour balance when you are working with less than 1024 x 768 pixel screen resolution, although I subsequently found how to get round that which I will flag up in following year review parts.

We talked about how to do your research to find your subjects for yourself, rather than get others to do your field work here.

On the gear front we covered graduated filters, circular polarisers and also the Think Tank Security bag which is vital for those times when you need to fly with your gear.

April also saw me get my DPAGB award which I covered here.

Hope you are enjoying your Christmas day wherever you are - back tomorrow with the review of May
