Hi everyone! Joined this forum a few minutes ago, and I'm a strict newbie!
Worse still, I also consider myself a newbie in the photography department.
Actually I found this site because I was searching for photographs of the urban
landscape of Singapore. To be frank, I particularly love urbanity and high-rises,
and for this reason, I seriously started picking up photographic skills about a
year ago in other to contribute to a website dedicated to high rise buildings
(Skyscrapers.com. Yeah I am the SOLE editor and contributer for Singapore! )
I also joined an international highrise forum (SkyscraperCity.com)
where I found myself fighting to showcase our city using photos against tonnes
of people out there (we usually end up showing more then just buildings of coz).
We have only about 2-3 dedicated Singaporean forumers there, so the pressure
to take good photos is very high indeed!!
I am still using my first consumer-level digital camera I bought back in the year
2000, a Sony DSC-F55V. I do hope to move up to a digital SLR, but the high
cost will most likely mean that I can only invest in it when I graduate! Now, I
can only make do with what I have, and try to work around its limitations, the
biggest grouse of which is the lack of optical zoom.
That is all for this introductory post (and I hope my honesty in explaning my
presense will not be met with hostility! ). As a welcome gift to myself, this
photo was taken by me on the 7th of August this year, and composed of 6
photos. Any comments please? Thanks!
