Hello everyone! I just joined here after finding about this place in the Mindef forums (yes it's sad, i'm still in green ). Kinda surprising to see such a big sg photography forum around.. I didn't know there were so many photographers here. I've been interested in photography for a few years, like I used to take photos on and off with a Coolpix 885, mostly when my family went for holidays overseas, but I only saved up enough to buy a Canon 350D a few months ago. So I'm still kinda new to serious amateur photography.. hope to learn a lot from all you pros out there
As equipment goes, I've only got the 18-55mm kit lens along with a tripod, clear filter and 1gb cf card. I'm planning on getting a dry box soon, but in the meantime I'm making do with a thirsty hippo. Also, any suggestions on a good (and cheap, $350 a month doesn't go very far) telephoto lens to get? I looked at the Canon lenses a while back, and o_O man are they expensive.
How often do you have outings on? It'd be great to watch other more experienced photographers and the way they take photos.. definitely lots to learn there.
Edit: Oh yeah, and I've got a dA site: misterboring.deviantart.com
