Right, I’ve got the nice new camera, played with the toys on it and now need to get cracking on doing some great photography with it.

I’ve been a fan of the Strobist site for ages, and really want to have a go at some fantastic funky lighting. So, with my birthday money, I raided Amazon, found some really cheap big umbrellas and light stands – details soon – tied them up with my existing really cheap Vivivar flashes and Cactus wireless flash controllers and let’s see where it takes us!

I’ve taken one shot so far, just to get a feel for it (and I do feel a bit of an idiot setting it all up in the front room to take one picture of my daughter) and I’ll post it up in a bit.

I’ll let you know how I get on!
