I'm sure this is a reoccurring theme here. Was looking for some good photography channels on YouTube. Found your channel, liked what I saw, and here I am :P.

I enjoy photography, DIY and cooking. For day job I am in IT.

Photography became my main hobby about 2 years ago. Been enjoying it a lot. I like HDR (don't be hatin ;)), and studio/portrait photography.

Always looking to learn something new and meet new people that share similar interest.

Thanks!

Paul.

Hi there Paul!

Welcome to the #Cazillions forum :). I am also a IT Engineer. And Photography is like a second job for me. Hoping to open my own big studio soon somewhere and be dedicated to photography ;)

Well. Welcome here. Check out Greg's video's. They are awsome each so i think you will enjoy and learn from that.

Hope to see some of your work on the forum. Share it with us :)

Greetings,
Roy

Thanks for the welcome Roy. Having a dedicated studio someday would be awesome. For now a garage will do :).

Hi Paul and welcome to das Forum. :)

Yes, people who are looking for good photography channels usually end up here. It's a reoccurring theme for sure.

Ugh, HDR, I hate you already! :P Nah, I think it depends on the type of HDR for me. I dislike that very false over the top look. I don't mind the more realistic look of HDR but it's not really my style though. If it's yours however, then go for it. :)

Anyway, welcome to the forum and if you have any questions, feel free to ask. :side:

Thanks Conor.

I guess HDR is an acquired taste :).

Do you guys do any G+ hangouts live?

I have to say.. Google + does not live so much in the Netherlands. We only use Facebook...

Is it handy to use Google +.. i don't want another social page to post "sh*t" on ;)

greetings,
Roy
