For those that haven't recieved this, I thought it may be of interest to some.

Dear MyFuji member,

It's the worst possible time of year for the active photographer looking
to take pictures - cold, wet, overcast and downright miserable. But fear
not, we've got a real treat in store for you at MyFuji, with tips on
shooting still-life and portraits at home without a studio, a fascinating
insight into the world of rock photography and plenty of news, hints and
tips to help you while away the winter nights.

We have also listened to your comments, and are now running a monthly
competition with 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes! The latest competition
theme gives you a chance to win Adobe Photoshop CS2 (with runner-up
prizes of a 1GB and a 256MB memory cards).

This month's theme is: close-ups. Check the MyFuji back catalogue of hints
and tips for inspiration on close-up and macro photography. Paul Ruddock
was the lucky winner of last month's competition, theme Low Light, with his
stunning night shot of Calatrava in Spain.

Until next time, happy snapping!

The MyFuji team
