    I'm looking to improve my photography, and I'm in my summer break so I was wondering if someone could give me some ideas, or even set me some challenges as to what I can take pictures of around my boring home and garden, possibily daring to go far enough onto the streets in my area.. a small town in Suffolk, England.

    I have a DSLR (Canon 450D) and a basic lens (18-55) with a new lens (55-250) arriving in the post soon!

    Thanks :D

    Instead of walking around looking for a flower or bird, or whatever to photograph, make up some unique challenges for yourself.

    Here are 3 to get you started.

    Red, look things that are red (or any other color) and shoot them in unique ways for a whole day.

    Reflections, shoot nothing but reflections, natural or staged.

    Shadows, get out early and and get out before dusk and shoot shadows.

    Get the idea, think a little different and give yourself daily challenges to help you see things a little more creatively.

    perhaps if i can find some time.. it looks like the house, garden and local area will have to suffice
