    Default Helping my Chinese wife learn photography

    Hi All -

    I'm new to Singapore, and I'm American. Spent the last few years in China, and I'm married to a Chinese person. She's here with me in Singapore, and think she would enjoy photography, so I'm trying to get her to learn. I was hoping to find either some websites for DSLR tips and learning in Chinese, or some local outings where most people will be speaking Mandarin.

    Any pointers or tips in finding outings with Mandarin speakers, or other tips anyone can share?

    Thanks,
    Eric

    well, she can of course look at the photography forums in china, such as fengniao or xitek. but do be warned, i feel that china photography forums have a much more lethal buybuybuy virus than singapore's.

    Ha ha, I cannot disagree with you. I feel they make their buying decision very fast and easily get a new copy of expensive item.

    I have a link

    http://dcbbs.zol.com.cn/frmView.php?frameon=yes

    I never thoroughly involve in the forum, so I cannot judge the content, just a sharing.
