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:)

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? :)

thanks for that info.
so is it advisable to use tissue paper to wipe it,or how should i rectify it,if say when i notice it when im outside. i have got no static free cloth or those kind of soft cloth?
