    Default Hi All....

    Hi guys,

    Used to come to this forum to look for tips. I recently decided to sign up as a member...

    I just bought a Canon EOS-7D and a EF-50mm f/1.4 lens.

    I personally like taking sports photography mainly motorsports. I fell in love with it when I attempted to shoot the F1 in Singapore last year with a Canon EOS-450D and a EF-S 17-55mm.

    I am interested in shooting other subjects too to improve my overall photography skills...

    I have posted it on my facebook photo gallery... It was my first attempt at shooting with a DSLR

    Welcome to CS

    U can post ur pics in the galleries section.

    Pics posted in FB is seriously degraded in iq becos of the compression, so not really a ideal web hosting site for real comments and critiques

    Anyways...what camera you have is not important. What is important is that you shoot more and practise more.

    Cheers...and welcome to the club mate.

    I figured if I got a good cam now... I wouldn't have to re-invest on a better cam when I get better as the 7D is... I believe the best 1.6x crop sensor by canon so far....

    If I do get good enough... and wanna go pro in the quite distant future... It wouldn't be too late to get a full frame wouldn't it.

    sports...in that case the 70-200mm f2.8 is probably the first sports lens you will want to get in my experience. For the 50mm, it works like a 80mm which is just nice for sports where you can shoot from ringside like basketball, tennis and so on but if can only shoot from spectator stand, thats when the 70-200mm comes into play.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.
