There's some great tips on here - but I do feel better after realising that Paul takes ten / keeps one - I thought it was just me being crap :P

Not only does my Sony DSC-H20 take pictures in burst mode, it takes them with different settings so you have a broader spectrum of images to pick from

Why do I carry a 45 ?
Because they don't make a 46 !

I tend to take 1 or 2, but if I do 2, its because I have changed the light source direction. When using bounce flash, it often pays to take the same shot with the light pointing at different areas of the room.

The nice thing about using artificial light, I am not dependent upon the sun, and can do a photo very much at anytime of the day.

Well.........sometimes I keep two  :-\...........should of said I keep em' all in a folder, but just post the better ones!
I remember seeing a programme about that Lord Litchfield fella back in the days of film photography, and he used to use three full films just for one picture.
He could afford it. The good thing about digital is you can take as many as you like and it costs nothing extra.

You've got to love the no cost of picture taking these days.  I was given my first camera when I was around seven.  It was crap quite frankly but at least I had one.  Problem was film and processing were expensive so I was bought two films a year :(

My six year old is already on his third or fourth 2nd hand digital compact and I can encourage him to take as many pics as he likes  :tu:  Not so keen on him creeping up on me with it though  ::)

I picked up a little Kodak for a fiver from the carboot sale the other week which I'll give to my youngest at Christmas (yeah, even Santa's been hit by the economic cruch :P ).

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

My  photo studio  :D :D :D (Image removed from quote.)

The camera on the N-95 is awsome, for a phone that is. Every pic that I have posted on the forum is taken with a N-95, but now that I have a Canon 500D :D I will use that in stead :D

I got the camera yesterday and I have had the worst hangover today so I have not had the time and energy try and make a light box or a little photo studio. But it will be field tested tomorrow when me and a buddy is heading over to Sweden for a little shopping of the usual stuff you buy when we Norwads are in Sweden.
