Hello all.

I'm new here. been watching for a number of years but never voted or submitted until this week. I have to say this is way more fun than lurking.

A bit about me.
I come from an IT background.
I have spent the last 5 years as a tutor in that feild.
I have spent the last 3 years playing with a DLSR.
I have spent the last year studying photography and design at UCOL in Palmerston North New Zealand.

English is my first language although sometimes to look at my spelling you may question that.

I aim high.

I look forward to playing with you all.

Welcome Stefan. When I first read this I thought this said "I am high", LOL.
Well, entering here can definitely be an addiction, though.

Have fun!

Hello Stefan.

I'm old here. been watching 21.gif Art Roflmao get undressed for a number of years but never took pictures. I have to say, it's fun lurking.

A bit about me.
I come from a circus background.
I have spent the last 5 years as a lesbian biker prostitute.
I have spent the last 3 years in prison.
I have spent the last year studying the effects of throwing gasoline on a fire.

Neon is my first language although sometimes I sit naked on a block of ice and chew tin foil.

I am high.

I look forward to playing with you.

Welcome. I see you've already met some of our more conservative members.

You're not the only one.
I thought this was an "i'm here, my spelling is bad but my photographs are good because i'm on mind altering substances" post :)

Welcome Stefan, hope you don't mind the crazies that linger around here, it's a great place :)

Maybe it would be better if you were high.....Anyway welcome

I think squinting through the viewfinder has had a deleterious impact on our vision because I too thought he wrote I am high...

Regardless, Stefan, you may want to get that way after the bewildering results you will undoubtedly receive for images you thought were masterpieces :-)

Welcome, have fun, ask questions. We don't bite. Much.

Welcome Stefan. Obviously everyone here is high. I am the only voice of sanity and sobriety here, just so ya know. ...other than that eery feeling I get that someone is watching me when I undress.

Enjoy this place (high or otherwise).

Feeling the love.

I'm watching those scores on my first two entries, one was concieved shot and edited in the two hours prior to the dead line, so I learnt dfrom that and the other next was done in ninety minutes.

It is a close run race between my two images (0.02 differance) and I have no idea where it will sit in the field of the entire comp, can't wait for my first entry to close voting so I have a baseline to aim to beat.

I spotted a deliberate brown and was going to call him out on it, but at the last moment thought how embarissing for me if that is actualy someones honest attempt.

I've picked some of the major players in the forums already (you know who you are) some need gagging others should get chat shows.

All of this stuff fills me with a manic desire to stay up all night hitting the refresh button.

Yes? lol I wondered who would notice my pop-in. :)

Edit: I just bought new lights. Thought I might use a challenge or two as an excuse to test them out. :)

The format suits my mindset. The pace is good with 1-3 days to actualy work on each challange if you do them all. I like to work on one thing at a time, work fast, move on, and learn.

The standards of the winners is very high, which gives me a challenge.

It's not to expensive and cultivates some great lateral thinking.
