It is of little wonder why so many people take the time to photograph birds, the natural variation present in this group of organisms together with the fact that they can be found on your doorstep make them a very accessible subject to photograph. However it can be quite daunting when you first decide you want to start photography or want to step up your hobby with the aim of getting a DSLR.
And here's another photography competition to try out for. Life Framer are running the competition, asking for photographs to be submitted along the theme of 'An instant'.
Winners get their photos printed framed and exhibited in a London gallery and win $400, so can't all be bad eh.
Florence in Italy is one of the most beautiful Cities I've had the pleasure of visiting and what follows is a brief photo journal of the City, and surrounding areas. On this trip I carried with me my robust, yet somewhat aged, Canon EOS 20D digital camera supported by the impressive Canon 15mm Fisheye lens.
Jessops has recently relaunched itself thanks to being purchased by Peter Jones. I think they did need to modernize, and hopefully with a slight change in direction they'll soon return to their proper place on the high street.

WIth an opportunity to visit the beautiful City of Paris, I thought I'd take the chance to try out the Canon EOS 5D, along with my trusty Canon 17-40mm and 15mm fisheye. The Canon 5D is an older camera, launched in 2005, and it's price has been dropping steadily thanks to the introduction of more recent full frames such as the Canon 5D Mark 3, the Canon 6D and Nikon D600. So, if you're looking for a cheap full frame digital slr, then the Canon 5D could be a decent option.
If you fancy putting your photography skills to the test, why not enter this architectural photography competition?
The theme of the competition is colour in architecture and the deadline for submissions is July 15th 2013 and the competition is open to everyone. With $1500 prize money up for grabs it's certainly tempting. The only snag is the $25 registration fee, but if you're feeling confident that you've captured a photographic marvel, why not take a punt?
