It's Christmas pork pie time. Just taken it out of the fridge. A crack limited filling with the jelly, but it's better than last year.
1.5kg of pork means that this is a once a year exercise...

This is what mine is based on
http://www.them-apples.co.uk/2009/06/how-to-make-pork-pie/

My one change is with adding the juice afterwards, where the baster I use has a fine metal nozzle that allows me to add the juices via a tiny hole on the top, near to the edge (where the space is) - don't forget to make two holes to equalise the pressure as you add the juices/jelly

So, what are you going to do about improving your photography next year? Some thoughts about why buying new kit is less and less often a solution and some of the things I'm looking at myself.

New photo equipment may be fun, but how much does it really make a difference. Thoughts on improving what you do and just as importantly why you do it.

Pro Photographer in Leicester - Commercial photography, articles and reviews at Northlight Images
Introduction
My G+ Policies:

If you have circled me and want me to add you to my circles (and I don't actually know you), the best way to catch my interest is to make comments on my postings. (I have so many people adding me that I have not got time to go through everyone)
1. Please be using a real name or a professional name (I rarely talk to 'brands' ;-)
2. I like to see your profile contain some information about yourself (reasons I might want to add you) 
3, It's important to have made some public postings (more reasons I might want to add you)
4. Don't add me to try and market to me.

I'm a professional commercial photographer based in Leicester in the UK. That's me in my garden, in the top left. Photo courtesy of Karen, my wife :-)

I'm here to share my experiences and learn from what others have to say

I also link to posts here from my articles and reviews. The Northlight images web site is part of my mission to help more people get more out of their photography - although it's got a lot of more technical stuff, the emphasis is always on getting better looking photos and prints as the end result.

This is where I'll also discus items from the rumour pages on the Northlight site - it's the longest running camera and printer rumour source, and although I'd rather be known for my photography, I know that tens of thousands visit the pages each week.

It's only this century I really took up photography I'm an ex geologist/electronics engineer/Human factors consultant. I've done a lot of stuff :-)

Bragging rights
None and proud of it :-)
