p.1 #1 · New Guy Introduction


Hello,

I'd like to introduce myself to everyone as this is my first post. My name is John and i'm an amateur / hobbyist that would love to take my photography skills to the professional level and eventually enter the world of wedding photography (wishful thinking). I understand that i'm nowhere near ready of becoming a wedding photographer but that is my goal and that's the reason why i'm introducing myself in this section.

Here's my current setup. 5D3, 35L, 85L 100L Macro, 135L, 580exii. I know that camera gear alone doesn't create great images but this is a life long investment for me. I'm also investing in myself by continuing to take photography courses at UCSD and always reading on becoming more creative. I've landed a few small commercial works and had my images used in local advertisements.

I love the creativity and passion of some members in this forum. I truly admire the time, effort and the honesty of the feedbacks delivered by the members. I'm here to learn and perhaps share any knowledge I have that may benefit other members. I'm a respectful person and would always keep my replies in a tasteful and professional way. I'm not a cyber bully nor do I entertain one. However, I always welcome honest critique from others as this open eyes to a different level of creativity.

Thanks for reading and I look forward on posting.

Thanks for a very warm welcome, everyone.

Tony - If you ever come down to SD for a shoot and need someone to hold your light stand or reflectors don't forget to holler at me. or we can just grab a cold one by the beach.

Robert M - I came from a 20D before the 5D3. It was a long wait but worth it for me. The glass collection were patiently acquired as I searched the net for great deals that are hard to pass up on. Or sometimes i get it from the military exchange store.

I've seen the caliber of the wedding photographers here and you all deserves nothing less than what I had posted on my intro.

Hardly - I haven't done any wedding / engagement related shoot ever. But i'm working to get some practice shoots with my friends. As soon as I get a session done I'll surely post it as soon as I can.

Ziffl3 - I'm in South bay. Bonita area to be exact. One day, i'd like to move to encinitas area.

I'm excited to be finally a member.

Welcome, John. Nice intro. Shame about the Canon gear, but hey, we all make mistakes.

Sell the 85 and 35, buy a Siggy and 24-70, I'd get at least 20 more flashes.. Wait what were you asking?

From a semi-newbie to a newbie, enjoy the forum...

Welcome from a fellow San Diegan. I'm more of a lurker here but do enjoy the banter.

Thanks folks. Really feeling the love and the sense of humor of this group.

Ian - maybe someday I'll convert to Nikon. On a second thought, maybe not.

Jaymar - good to see a fellow San Diegan
