    Default New member : RebelRiot

    hi to all.

    this is rebelriot. just joined this forum recently, and as well gotten myself a Canon 550D dslr. consider myself new into the photography scene, and would love to learn more from all the pros here.

    up to now, i only have two lenses to play with. the canon 18-55kit lens and a 50mm f/1.8 prime lens.

    hope to learn more from all of you. cheers

    Greetings rebelriot!

    Hope you like the place and will stay long

    Don't worry about whatever equipment you have. If you can maximize it fully, I can guarantee you are 1 up over those with super high end, super expensive equipment, but shoot in Auto or hold the dSLR like as if it was a P&S.

    Do join the outings to meet people with the same inclination, and you can learn at the same time!

    Cheers!

    thanks all for the warm welcome

    currently im using the 50mm to shoot potrait. am i fully utilising it? haha. or is there other situation that can push the limits of the 50mm further? the 1.8 bokeh is pretty awesome, i would say

    Welcome to CS the 50mm is a great lens to play around with. Why limit yourself to just shooting portrait with it? Just experiment

    yeah will do. ndp coming. not sure if wanna go shooting anot, it will be super crowded, plus my 18-55mm wont zoom far enough, if im standing for a far distance away from the parade or subject

    Hmm there are some area where the SAF will parade through, i know bishan is one of the places, maybe you can get yourself close enough to the action in these cases. Can pm me if u wanna go for the shoot, i will be around there.

    thanks spree86 for the warm invite.
    well probably stay at home and rot for the day. haha.

    maybe in the evening go enjoy the fireworks but probably wont be shooting because i havent master how to shoot fireworks. i knew there are guides / links pasted in the forum somewhere on how to shoot firework but i havent really read. so guess it wont be easy. just let my eyes enjoy will do.

    happy national day pals

    hi all. my kit lens is attached with a hoya uv filter. the problem is i realise that there is fingerprint on the filter,when i checked it under the light. i took a soft cloth to clean it, and ended up cleaning the print but leaving a few specks of dust on it.

    my qn is, if let say i did not clean the fingerprint on the filter, and continue shooting. will it affect or be reflected in my pics?
