    So I have had my D90 for a few weeks now, And im still like a little boy at Christmas with it. But the weather for the last week or so has been terrible, and it doesnt look like its getting any better. It's about 35 degrees and raining right now :grumpy:. I want to shoot SO BAD, but the inside shots are kind of played out for me now! What kind of things would you be doing?

    I kind of want to practice with Self-portraits, but They dont turn out very well cause I only have the on-camera flash.

    Tell me about it. I got off work today because of the weather. It has been too windy to operate my boom all day.

    All I can do is go through older (hopefully sunnier) photos these days. There is NOTHING I would even WANT to take a photo of in this general greyness outside. I had the camera with me today when I visited a large swamp area with the friend of a friend. I never once used it. It was just too ugly out there, weatherwise.
    So I take enjoyment from going through my photos from Turkey, from looking up what things were I saw and photographed, and from writing my blog about it, illustrating it with as many photos as I can possible squeeze in. That gives me a feeling of warmth, of colours ... but USING the camera JUST NOW? Impossible (well, nothing's impossible, but ... I know I wouldn't like the results, anyway...).

    Ah. One thing that might be nice and colourful could be a) Christmas markets (I should really make myself go to one!), and b) Christmas decorations, either those of private homes, or the public ones. Maybe ... or those in shop windows. Maybe ... just for an idea...

    Man, This is frustrating! How do I make this camera re-focus when I step in front of it on the self timer? Do i have to setup a dummy for it to focus on?!!

    Do what I did, set up the Christmas tree (if you're into that sort of thing) and take pictures of the beautiful colors and ornaments at various settings.
    They look so colorful and gorgeous.
    -9C and snowing sideways here today.

    The weather here is also not too good.

    Raining and tornado warnings/watches.
