Default Hiya

Hi all,

I'm probably the world's worst photographer. I've just started picking up cameras again after long hiatus. I'm a non-working painter/sculptor-so I'm coming at this with the eye and skills of a classically trained abstract expressionist if that makes sense.

I'm currently in Pune, India. This trip I thought I would travel with no camera, just my phone and ended up buying a Canon M50 in Malaysia which I've been learning. I also impulsively bought 2 used cameras online: Sigma DP3 Merrill. And Chinon's Digital Harinezumi 4.0 (to give you an idea where I'm at) So much for no cameras-lol.

My interests are heading towards: macro-ish interior still life details in low light of the mess in my flat, multiple exposures, street fisheye, B&W monochrome infrared with infrared flash. And of course, people portraits. I know zilch about post processing and look forward to getting help on this site. You guys know what you're doing.

Hi, Laurence,

Welcome aboard. Sounds like you're in the same condition as many of us!

Nice to see you get an M50. I think that's a nice machine.

We'll be looking forward to see what you do!

Best regards,

Pune India? That could be a place on Mars, I am so ignorant. But thanks to Google, within a few moments I will know a lot more!

The Sigma Merrill seems to be a great “MF-quality” camera with superb image quality. Your Harinezumi 4.0 is again new to me, but that to I will read up on shortly!

Looking forward to seeing your pictures!
