Deviant art

i realise deviantart is a fantastic place for artists to meet, to learn.

i have a few people to thank that got me here in photography, i wont say very very far yet, but well it is far.

  1. Ming Jian for boosting my knowledge of photography with the book he bought for me on my 21st birthday. and from there i started exploring different techniques
  2. Xin Yi for constantly challenging the boundaries of composition. This has made me think how i can better compose EVERY photo i take.
  3. Becky for buying a book for advanced techniques that will last me a life time. it's like giving gatorade to me while i am in a marthon. rejuvenation.
  4. Robby for his advie and guidance
  5. Ezra for making me realise that it is important to know the boons and banes of your camera and how to exploit them.
  6. anyone else who has inspired me whatsoever or allow me to use them as a model lol.

i was trying to find portraits or people shots so that i can emulate one for a self portrait. and i encountered problems:
  1. there are almost no male popular shots
  2. if there are, they are usually nude or sexy.
  3. and so my search for good and unindecent shots for males continues. after exams.
and now my collection is almost complete
  1. nikon d80
  2. tamron 70-300mm F/4-5.6 LD macro 1:2
  3. tamron 28-80 mm F/3.5-5.6
  4. Lowepro Nova1 camera bag
  5. 52, 58, 62 mm filters for my lenses (including polarisers for 52 and 58mm)
  6. the 50mm F/1.8 prime lens is on it's way from Hong Kong. hope it comes soon so i can find someone to shoot with it.
  7. i am just short of a wide angle lens. i was thinking maybe i will get it when i earn some money from either shooting or from some other source of income.
good luck to everyone for tmr's last paper. i think i need all the luck i can get. i am scared seriously.
