Post Greetings from Munich

Hi all,

my name is Raymond and I've been a keen amateur photographer for a while now.

Been asked a couple of nights ago what kind of photography would I like to focus (and get better) at and I replied, "photojournalism" - to take the kind of photographs that tells a story and brings out emotions in the audience. This probably also means I have to improve myself in all fields too - portraits, landscapes, still life etc.

My wife Jeanette (a.k.a "chewje", also a newbie to Pixalo) travel a lot and have had the good fortune of taking some good pictures, among MANY bad ones. I'm here to contribute and learn at the same time. At the moment, we do this from our home base in Munich, Germany where we've had this forum recommended to us. We look forward to contributing to this forum in the future from here and beyond.

Looking forward to looking forward.

cheers,

Raymond

Re: Greetings from Munich

Hi Katie,
Welcome to Pixalo! I"m one of the new signups from a local Munich club and hope to share our ideas not only within a closed user group we have here but on the main forum as well.

We're truly on the same boat, spending wise too even though photography is "just" a hobby. I make too many excuses why I need a better lens, an FX body, more intelligent flash unit etc.. Now that I've influenced my wife into this hobby, things will get interesting...

I look forward to learning and sharing with you on the forum! Cheers!
