Lessons from the photo pro

My Christmas present this year was a Nikon D40X camera – I’d sold all my film SLR equipment a few years previously, and I was just waiting for prices to drop, and pixels to rise to the point where it made sense. I’m not a photographer, but I do enjoy taking photos – how fortuitous that my good friend and neighbour Paul Atkinson used to run a branch of Jessops, is a seasoned pro, and also has a Nikon.

Paul took me out the other day to capture a few sunsets: the difference between what I would have taken (think:washed out and hazy) and what he showed me how to do, is quite astounding. I have the latter as my screen background now – it might not win any awards, but it’s got my dog in and it works for me.
