If your bored and out of ideas for photography at anytime of the year get yourself a Crystal Ball and have some fun.
Get a Ball for 20 pound and camera and a lens, ideal lens would be a Macro and to get the great effects you need to get close to the ball or use a Zoom.
Use a bigger aperture for depth of field. F8 for my Sony 90mm would be ideal.
Find big objects to photograph or if your like me I try anything.
