In May 2004, for the second month in a row, Digital Camera Magazine published another one of my photographs in the Hotshots section of the magazine, this time of a Swan resting. This shot was taken whilst on a 'photo meet' organised through a photography forum I was a member of at the British Wildlife Center in Kent.
In April 2004 I had my first photo published in the Hotshots section of Digital Camera Magazine which was this photo of Brighton's Palace Pier that I took one weekend in March. This was one the most rewarding shots I've taken as I could see exactly the shot I wanted to create before I even took my camera out of the bag.
Every month Digital Camera Magazine have a feature in the magazine called Readers Day where one of the readers is taught how to shoot a specific subject or genre. Suggestions for readers days can be made by writing to the magazine direct or by responding to a specific thread in their user forum.
This thread was started by Ben Birchall who is the Technique Editor at the magazine and the person who typically runs the readers day and it was in this thread that I said that I would like help on how to photograph forests.
