The First Pool of 2009

This is the first fun at the pool of 2009 and I feel blessed with the great talent at the DIYP Flickr group. One of the things that makes me particularly happy is the great use you are doing with the flickr DIYP discussion group. A few great questions were asked about building a softbox, creating the shaped bokeh thing and more. Great answers are given by the readers, and it is a great opportunity to let everyone know about this resource.

This is also a great opportunity to mention Something Newer, our latest photography project. Submit an image with the friends theme to DIYP Flickr pool and tag it with somethingnew to get a chance to win a two-week rental of a camera/lens or both.
