  1. Soo, lucky girl here has just got her first DSLR for my Birthday on Friday!! After testing them out in the shop I went for the Canon 600D with the basic kit lens (18-55mm IS) I've drawn up a little wish list of lenses which I would like... 50mm 1.4 and 75-300mm for a start. I'd love a Macro too but I think that one might have to wait until next year as they're super expensive so I'll wait, save and by then I should be confident with my baby. I need a little help on what else I'll need. Has anyone got any good suggestions of things I could get? I've been looking at tripods but I have no idea what to get. I'm only a shorty 5"1. Will this make a difference when looking for them? Do I need lens hoods? Filters? I don't want to buy a ton of stuff that I wont really need. Any help/answers greatly appreciated x
  2. brilliant storm last night! I was going to bed around 12 and as soon as I shut my eyes the room lit up from distant lightning. So there was no chance I was going back to bed. It was mostly distant lightning, pretty and calm and then came the squall sometime between 2 and 3am. It was pretty intense! I was sitting in my window and it went from lovely calm to hell unleashed in an instant. I actually crapped it for a second as the wind was so strong it was difficult to shut the window and I was trying not to get blown out or fall out. The squall was fab, sideways monsoon rain, very windy, 1cm hail, thunder and lightning. It lasted a good few mins too. My 2year old sat watching from the bed and she was most concerned about my camera getting wet, never mind Mummy blowing away LOL! Next door lost some washing as I expect many people did last night. Im absolutely shattered today after a couple of hours sleep but it was well worth it.
