Thread: Newbie saying 'hello'!

  1. #1

    Smile Newbie saying 'hello'!

    Hi everyone,

    i'm completely new to Photography. In the past, photography to me was like holding a P&S camera or a camera phone snapping away happily when i'm on outings with family or friends.
    Until abt a week ago that i chanced upon ClubSNAP when i was actually browsing the web for my toy collection.

    When i saw the photos on some of the senior's blogs and those in the gallery, i was like 'WOW'........and i was imaging the kind of feelings the photographer must have felt;.......wonderful! It was a form of art to me.

    The more i read, the more i get hooked....lol, evil. and there you go....i have a new found love other than my wife, son and toys.........it's photography. And i bought a Sony A33with the SAL 18-250 lens (promotion price at S$500, original S$899, tot was a good deal as a layman's view) to start off my photography journey....

    Will be spending hell lots of time reading and picking up from here. Looking forward to the next newbie outing and start learning the ropes from all the seniors and fellow newbies as well. Meanwhile, i'm trying to pass the 'virus' to my wife and hopefully, can get her into this new hobby in the near furture. Then i no need to find excuses for future investments/purchases...haha!

    Lastly, thanks and cheers to the ppl who have maintained and contributed to this forum.....great job!

    Warm welcome to CS!

    No need to poison her so soon. Do get her more involved though, like taking more pics of her etc

    Have fun with your new gear and enjoy your learning curve!

    freerein,

    i bought it at Sony Style IMM. not sure which promotion exactly. in fact they did not display any promotion for this. My original intention was to get the kit lens (think it's the 18-55) but out of stock. Then the sales told me there's a promo to get the 18-250 only with purchase of the SLT A33. So i got it.

    Welcome to CS.

    5 years old is a good time to get started. Start with toy camera and if their interest gets perk up then can slowly introduce proper pns.
