Thread: The Not-so-Mandatory Self-Introduction

  1. #1

    Default The Not-so-Mandatory Self-Introduction

    Hey,

    Decided to take up photography as a not-so-serious hobby, and thought I'd find like-minded people around here.

    Hopefully (or not), your obsessions will rub off me! We'll see what happens.

    Looking forward to having a good time with you all.

    Have a great time here! Hope you won't catch the BBB Virus which spreads around in this region. It's highly contagious.

    Ahahaha. While I'm not totally familiar what exactly BBB Virus is (even though have been lurking for a while before registering), something tells me it's not a good thing. XD

    Hahaha, It's actually quite "harmless" (that is if you have a bottomless pocket like what spree mentioned)

    Welcome...while we hope you won't catch BBB virus so fast, I hope you catch SSS virus fast (SHoot x 3). Enjoy your new hobby, it can be addictive (at least to me for now). I always think of what new ideas to shoot when I am supposed to clear a pile of work in office LOL.

    I guess I'll buy necessities first like tripod and bag. Bought bag when I purchased my dslr not tripod, thinking I wouldn't need it while I'm still starting out. Took a few test shots and... lol. I really need that tripod. xD

    Welcome to CS.
    Be careful not to get too poisoned in buying stuffs for your camera.
    Or else every month you will be eating plain porridge with soya sauce just like me.
