Poundland haul reviews.

Image
So I decided to go and do an old school review, like what I used to when i first started the channel many moons ago, and pay a quick trip to the local poundworld to see what cheap rubbish they had on offer.
Oh what fun.

Well, sometimes you can get more cheap and nasty rubbish then you know what to do with, and for a price that is almost the right price it makes it much easier to be tempted to do a review like this. doesn't it?


Let's be honest, most of the stuff I've gotten from poundworld is nothing but pure naff rubbish. But on the other hand chances are I've just introduced you to a word you've probably never used before.

Some boxes of Lego!

Some photography experiments. Long exposure.

Part One comes first.

Part Three comes last.

Some photography fun, long exposure.

So, which is better when it comes to down to it? 
It's monopod vs tripod.
Both beat freehand when it comes to stabilisation, but can you do with a monopod what you can with a tripod when your trying some slow shutter speed photography? Here's a little montage of some pics I took just last night for my own education.
