Best of luck with the voting on your current entry. It's nice to see another Aussie here. Aussies are generally pretty entertaining and very real people.

Hi Beck, always good to see another Aussie here. Good luck with your first entry. As for the riff-raff, they keep the place interesting, even Judi, she's alright even for a redhead Queenslander ;)

As for learning, take photos, enter challenges, vote on others, read comments and you'll really start to get a sense of what works and what doesn't. Once you have that the trick is to make it work for you, I find the way to go is to buy more equipment/ flashes/ lenses etc, until my wife threatens to burn the lot :)

And most important of all, if a photo you like bombs, and believe me it will happen ( alot, or is that just me?), don't take it personally, its all a learning experience.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

I can't afford to buy any more equipment, the money I did have is in savings and slowly being squandered by my needy sister... I had to pay her rent for her this week. GAH.

I've learned not to take it personally, I have a deviantART page and I feel disappointed if a photo I love doesn't get a favourite and the current photo I have in the challenge appears to be doing okay, I don't expect to win though.

EDIT: Oh by the way, I'm taking part in the macro side challenge on the forums, feedback would be nice. :)

Hi Beck. I am Art. I like long walks on the beach, sitting around the campfire and I am into both flora and fauna.

I hope you enjoy your time here. ... ...Beck? ...are you still here?

Hello Beck. I am Slippy. I like to climb greased poles for money, rule DPChallenge with an iron fist, and tell authority figures where they can stick it.

Don't believe anything people here tell you.
09/04/2009 06:46:31 PM · #36
Hahahaha, stick it to the man! :P
09/04/2009 07:03:43 PM · #37
lol that is almost true, Especially the part about telling the authority where to stick things, However the other parts are a bit off base, He actually likes to get greased up and dance around poles, and No one actually rules DPC. DPC IS one of the most unruley places on earth. If it was Ruley, Slippy wouldn't be allowed to run around in his underwear all covered in grease telling people where to stick it. by the way, Welcome to DPC Beck I seemed to have forgot to say that in my previous posts.

Grab your update button and drag it up to your tool bar at the top. No more scrolling down to find the update button!
