I am really excited to be able to participate in CJ's free online 12 Days of Christmas photography course. As you will know if you read my blog regularly, I treated myself to a Canon EOS 1000D a few months ago, but I have barely used it and I really need to! So I thought this would be a great thing to do. Over the next 12 days I will be doing a photography assignment per day and I will share those photos with you. The first isn't part of the course, it's just a festive self-portrait for the forum. This is mine - the light is awful and as always, I hate photos of myself, but here it is. Check back tomorrow for photo number two :) TTFN.
