    Introducing myself: joining from Lahoe

    Hello,
    my name is Lukas Werth. I am an anthropologist and (for what it's worth, that is, self-trained) photographer. I live in Lahore, Pakistan, and in my photography I am broadly interested in interpreting cultural spaces. If you care to have a look into my flickr account
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/lukaswerth/
    in which you will note, first, a somewhat haphazard mixture of pictures from Pakistan and Germany, you might note, if you scroll down, that I am also interested in the possibilities of alternative photographic processes. (You might also have a look into the sets.)
    I am a relative newcomer in the use of a DSLR for my expressive photography, but I am trying - well, what else should I do?

    Hello Lukas. A very warm welcome to the CiC forum. I hope you enjoy being involved.

    I very much enjoyed looking through your Flickr site. Your street photos and those involving people in various celebrations or events, are excellent. It seems very obvious that your professional discipline does enable and allow you to study people closely and your photographic skills allow you to capture those moments of great interest. Wonderful observations.

    Hi Lucas, As Donald said, welcome.
    Some amazing photos in your flickr site. Wonderful colours, characters and architecture.
    Just listed you as one of my follows on flickr.
    Cheers, Greg

    Thank you for the welcome, Donald and Greg. I checked into your galleries as well; Donald, it gives me a pleasure to see how you handle soft contrast and midtones in monochrome. Brings a landscape to life for me!
    Greg, I admit I was particularly drawn to your animal pictures. The conure reminded me of parrots I once had, but these are just good portraits of an intricate creature. And Tasmanian devil and echidna, whow!!

    Welcome Lukas. Enjoyed your flickr account enormously. The two transvestites and the ruined shrines stood out but they were not alone. looking forward to seeing some more.

    Hi Lukas,

    I also loved going through the Flikr acocunt. Some of them were incredible. This one here I find particularly striking.

    Look at that sky!

    It appears so huge, towering abover the land, on top of that low horizon. Terrifying. Reminds me of some of the landscapes in the art posters that I have previously found here - http://www.posterlounge.co.uk/art-posters/

    Hi Steph,

    Thank you for the complement. What I find intriguing is that you picked a picture which has not been liked by many - which, I suppose, is because its subject matter doesn't open itself so easily to the viewer.

    On a separate note, you made me log into CIC again after quite a long time.

    Cheers,
    Lukas

    Actually Lukas, it wasn't Steph, it popped up again today because a spammer put an advertising link in this thread, which I have deleted.

    Surely we're always worth a visit?

    Welcome back, Dave

    Welcome to CiC... Your flicker account is filled with awesome and mind boggling images. They are of the quality I would expect to see in the pages of National Geographic Magazine...
