Digital photography tutor - April - June submissions

Here you will find the accepted contributions to the digital photography tutorials page, from April - June 2008.

Due to technical difficulties - i.e. me moving country! - it took longer to go through the submissions. Consequently there's rather a long list here, spanning a few months. Might need two coffees to get through them all!

If you have a photo that you would like "Ed." to run his critical eye over, please contribute here

The benefits of digital photography with the quality of a SLR - I was taking amazing pictures!

But other SLR owners I talked to were disappointed.
