    And I'm very happy you've found us, Lisa. Hello and welcome. Thanks for joining. Hopefully you have a flavour of this group and the type of people on it and the fact that its main purpose is to help people learn and develop their photographic knowledge and skills. The one rule is that there is no such thing as a dumb question. If we want to ask something, we do, without fear that someone's going to say 'Oh, you should already know that'. I believe that happens on some forums. Anyone saying that on here would not be welcome to stay.

    Hi! I am PD (PD Singh). I have been an amateur photographer from film days. I have recently renewed my passion with the acquisition of a Canon DSLR and a few lenses. I am interested in Landscapes, Cityscapes, Street photography and some portraiture. Looking forward to learning the finer points of good photography especially how to get tack sharp photographs. I will be posting some photos for your valuable feedback. Thanks!

    Hi Friends!

    It has been a long time since I was active on CiC...and I miss it! I believe I was initially active on CiC in 2009-2010. Since then I have learned so much about using my DSLR (Canon 40D) and am saving up to buy my first full-frame camera (still exploring options). I love doing portrait sessions, especially families and couples. Not so big on weddings (I've done 4 of them now, all very casual/small) or babies (they're very uncooperative and they smell). The landscape photography I do I typically keep to myself, but I also find it to produce some of the most rewarding images.

    I am happy to have "found" CiC again and look forward to learning even more...hopefully even helping others!!

    Hi I am Ed Sanford

    After years of being a film zealot, I am doing digital photography (which is still just photography with a sensor rather than film).. Photography has been a passion for many years, and I consider my self always to be a student. I am currently focusing on landscapes. I have a Canon system consisting of a 5DMKII and a 5DRS with several L lenses. I do my post processing in Lightroom CC with a touch of Photoshop only when absolutely necessary.

    Hello and welcome to the forum. That was exactly the pathway I took as well.

    So that you don't continue to get people asking you what your proper name is, because most us use that on here, you can go to Edit Profile (under 'Forum Actions' on the Menu Bar), or you can just press on 'Settings' on the menu bar right up at the top right of the window. Once there you can enter the name by which you wish to be addressed under 'Real Name'. Then it will appear underneath your Username in all your posts. You can also enter your location so that it does the same, just as in my details alongside this message. Then we all know where everyone is in the world.

    Sarah - Welcome home!!

    The culture of CiC is very much the same and that bit about helping others is still what it's very much about. Great to see you back.

    How true that is, Ed. It's those who believe that learning never stops that will, I believe, be the most successful.

    It's a pleasure to welcome you to the forum. I hope you enjoy it.

    Hello Kathy. Thank you for choosing to join CiC.

    The one thing I hope you always find with this forum, is that there is no such thing as a dumb question. People on here remember that they were once just starting to learn as well. Anyone who criticises someone for not knowing something is pretty quickly told that, on here, we don't do that.

    So, please do join in - asking questions, posting images.

    If you ever need any help in getting images posted into your message, then please do read the helpful guide that walks you through how to do it. Click HERE to read the thread.

    Hi everybody at CIC, Im Devonion and as it shows I live in North Devon. Im a lapsed photographer returning after retirement, the passion is still there. I focus mostly on Landscapes and Seascapes as this region is rich in beautiful views however I like to grab portraits when the opportunity presents, mostly by a nod to the person before waiting for a picture I like. Im a Nikon user and now have retired my old F90x for an old D700 as most of my lens' will work. I hope to pick up Skills as I like your web site tutorials.

    Great to have you here, Mike. I hope you enjoy being part of CiC and do indeed find it useful. I hope what you'll find is that the forum complements the tutorials by being home to a lot of people who are only too willing to share knowledge and experience, answer questions and discuss all sorts of photographic issues.

    Welcome, Ken. Thanks for signing up to the forum.

    From what you wrote, I think you must have tried to put a picture into your post. If need any help in getting images posted into your message, then please do read the helpful guide that walks you through how to do it. Click HERE to read the thread.

    Also, if you're asking fro comments on a picture, the two areas of the forum for that are 1) Nature & Architecture and, 2) People & Pets. Not that you can't post anywhere else, but more people will see it there given that that is where we post when we want5 folks to comment.

    Re: NEW MEMBER? please introduce yourself here

    Hi all!
    I'm quite glad I stumbled upon this forum. I have the Canon 650D and am looking to make a major upgrade to a full frame camera (hopefully this Black Friday if the deals are great). I only see superlatives in describing the 5DSR. And zeros when I look up the price. :-) With a new camera, I am looking for a general purpose lens (Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0 L IS USM Lens, perhaps? OR the Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Canon?). I've shot a few weddings, concerts and family events but
    largely do portrait, landscape/cityscape and wildlife photography.
