Introduce yourself!


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

My name is Alain and after I saw the link at Petapixel I came over to post some wish list for bodies and lens Smiley Very Happy

I think it is agood move from Canon to open up a bit more and hope they will consider our inputs. I opened up a Lens wish-list thread by the way, I hope you add your ideas.


I am enjoying a 1D4, after the 1D3, both great cameras. I love them because the AF points are place where I need them to be, and very precise.

I mostly use the 85II, or 200 2. I also use 24II, 24 TS-EII, 16-35II, 100 IS, and 14mm.

I shoot traditionnal Japan, like festivals and geishas etc.




Hello everyone today I found this forum (too bad there is in Italy) and I joined. I speak very little English but I'll try 'to understand.


Hi all,

Hope this forum really takes off and we can use each other to improve our skills, professional or hobbiest.
