Photography: Christmas shots

Wednesbury Christmas tree

It’s nearly Christmas and so there are lots of new things to point your camera at. I’ve bought some new filters, a warm filter, soft focus and a 4 point star filter. I used the 4 point star filter to take this shot of the town Christmas tree. (more…)
