Hi everybody
I'm new on the forum, but I've been checking Steve's reviews regularly for about 2 years now. I'm working with animation and illustration. Also freelancing as game designer for mobile phone games. I like to photograph my travels and people around me. The last 3 years I've been increasingly taking pictures. I have been following the progress of Sigma and Foveon, eagerly been awaiting the Foveon equipped Polaroid x530. During the wait I've decided that this year will be the year I buy my first dSLR camera. Perhaps a Canon 350 D if nothing else that competes shows up.

I'm a vegetarian... that eat fish.
I cook a lot... but I rarely use the oven.
I'm half Swedish half Greek... living in Norway.
I'm 189 cm tall... and I have no idea what that means in foot and inches.
Last week I made my first public performance as a pianist... on one song during my girlfriend's band's concert... where I was handling the light.
I'm born in Sweden 1976... the year of the dragon.
I speak Swedish, Norwegian, English well. Almost OK German. Pretty lousy Greek and Japanese.
I like music a lot.. but I'm so tired of most of the music I hear, so I will record my own album during this year.

Check out my homepage if you're interested in seeing the animations I'm doing.
See you in the forum.

My name is Ed. In high school I was an AV nerd.(now I'm a photo nerd):| But that being said, it gave me the great opportunity to learn from a retired professional photographer who took care of the AV dept. to keep busy.

He taught us old school photography, from taking the shot to doing the darkroom work (we even rolled our own film),And I've been in love with taking pictures since.

I went digital about 5 years ago with a casio ex3000 and have never looked back. Doing what I call my darkroom work is so much easier on the computer than the old fashioned way, plus it doesn't smell as bad. :G I've now got a FZ10 and loving it.

Well that's about it.

Just remember "Wherever you go, that's where you'll be."

Hi group!

Very new to this forum, but already discovered it's one of the best photgrahpy ones on the web!

I had a Canon T70 SLR for many years then moved onto a Powershot A10 for a couple of years, but rarely used it much - and then really only for "snapping", but now wish to get in photography a lot more. Looking to buy a FZ20, but just hanging on for a few weeks before I do.

Born in Southampton, England, moved to Wales a year ago and wouldn't go back!

A carpenter by trade, have set up on my own and things are going quite well. Lovely girlfriend ,Wanda, who i'm just buying a house with.

I have a very warped sense of humour and try to look on the brighter side of life:?.

Favorite things. Books, Wind in the Willows and, most things by Bill Bryson.

Don't watch Movies but am a bit of a "Trekkie". Like Friends, Will and Grace, Frasier. I also like humour that takes the micky out of real life, like Mr Bean (the original english TV ones) Open all hours (Ronnie Barker/David Jason)and Fawty Towers (John Cleese) as well as a few home improvement programs. (God, I'd love Norm's workshop in the New Yankee Workshop! - mind you I'd like to be able to produce his work as well:lol:

Music, Most music that has a melody, but Love Tina Turner, Queen, Eva Cassidy and some smooth Jazz.

Food. anything unhealthy especially burgers, Kebabs, Chinese and Indian. (Actually I do eat quite healthly, but still crave a good Mcadonalds.)

Hobbies, Internet, Music, My dog (Kizzy) walking, wildlifeand soon photgraphy. Looking forward to getting a Garden again in our new house.

Holidays. Turkey - fascinating and lovely, Bahamas - really nice, Florida has to be seen to be believed, I absolutly adore France and will hopefully move there one day.

That's it for me, and I look forward to getting to know you all that little bit better over the next few weeks.

Woody (Mark)

Im Rich

Live in the UK

I am currently dealing with Lyme disease after picking it up somewhere on A Round the World backpacking trip which is how I got into photography and the the fz10. Wished I'd started years before- both photography and travelling.

Favourite places- Alaska, SE Asia/S. America

Favourite animals- dangerous ones. Got some Kodiak bears from 15 feet amongst others. It was a magical day.

Favourite drinks- English ales. Sorry Yankee buddies but it was hard finding decent beer over there but the micro breweries are reversing that in some places. Tequila- only for the fond memories of teaching my Ohio buddy how Englishmen drink LOL on many marathon sessions. He loved the floor of his porch! Happy days.

Films: Last samurai, Kurosawa films, Thelma and Louise, Emerald Forest, Braveheart, Michael Collins

Books: Too numerous to mention

Interests: Martial arts, Hypnosis and NLP, travelling, Photography, Qi Gong

Currently trying to write a few books and finding it very hard work.

Nice to read about others

Take care
