Introduce yourself!

[ Edited ]

I thought this would be a good thread for everyone to come in and tell a little about yourself, especially as the forum is just getting started.

 

My name is Michael Andrew, but I go by Michael The Maven. I have been a Canon shooter for almost 10 years now and I LOVE Canon gear. 

 

I started off primarily as a portrait and wedding photorgapher, after a few years of working as a videographer in the wedding industry in Alabama. For the past 5 years, I have run a free online photography school for beginning Canon shooters and have have produced several Canon training videos, many clips of which can be seen on Youtube. I am intimiately familiar with the following Canon gear:

 

Canon Rebel XSi

Canon Rebel T1i

Canon Rebel T2i

Canon Rebel T3i

Canon Rebel T4i

Canon 40D

Canon 50D

Canon 60D

Canon 5D

Canon 7D

Canon 5Dii

Canon 5Diii

 

Canon Speedlite 430, 580 Ex, Exii

Canon Speedlite 600

 

I look forward to meeting everyone and sharing my knowledge with you if I can help!

 

Michael

Twilightscapes

Hello, my name is Todd Lambert and I was invited by Canon to help launch their new online forums.

 

I am primarily a night photographer but I do dabble in just about anything else that catches my fancy. I love to shoot at night though, so if you have any questions or want to chat about low light photography, please hit me up.

 

Thanks! 

 

I look forward to the growth of these forums and the wealth of knowledge they will eventually contain.

 

- Todd

Introduction!

[ Edited ]
Greetings, Tood & Michael - nice to meet you both. My name is Brian C. Weed and I'm a camerman in Los Angeles, CA - but originally from AL, Michael; roll tide! I've been shooting Canon cameras since my first GL2 and Rebel XT. I now own and shoot tons of stuff with the C300 and a suite of L series lenses. I'm a shooter for Last Call with Carson Daly on NBC (shot nearly exclusively on Canon DSLR's and C300) as well as a cinematographer and operator on several other television and feature film projects.

I'm definitely excited about a forum dedicated to enthusiasts of Canon cameras, and very much look forward to sharing experiences, questions and answers with people interested in growing their skills in the world of digital image making.

Hi, I'm interested to see what this all can become. I'm thinking the interface is a bit dated and the avatar options are... People should be able to upload pics as avatars.

 

I'd also like to se a preview mode for posts. For ex I have no idea if the sig set up in profile will post or not and what it will look like. Same with links, embedded photos, etc.

 

So, is anyone headed to Photo Plus Expo? I'll be attending on Sat. 10/27 for the day. 

 

Edit: OK I see the preview button. Don't see the sig showing up yet. 

 

Edit Mark II: Sig seems messed up. Lots of work to do. Here's hoping.
