The Bad Workman Can No Longer Blame His Tools

The photos on this blog are a little too crappy.  Like most blokes, I would prefer to acquire a gadget than acquire a skill.  So I caved and bought a digital SLR.

A recent conversation with Snooker sold me on a Nikon D90, the choice of serious amateurs and the workaday camera for many professionals.  In the end, though, I got the D5000, the Einsteiger version of the lauded D90, which has the same sensor and I could blow the €200 difference on beer.

These photos came from the first day's experimenting, on a walk through our favourite bit of the Altstadt.  I am disappointed that the purchase of a new camera has not made every photo I take brilliant, but I think there's an improvement.

If any of you real photographers have some SLR tips for a gumby amateur, I'm all ears.  Otherwise I shall be forced to read the instruction manual.  And you know how blokes hate to do that.
