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 Speedlite 430, 580 Ex, Exii
Canon Speedlite 600
I look forward to meeting everyone and sharing my knowledge with you if I can help!

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

So nice to neet you Brain and Todd. This is super exciting for me to know there will be so many other extremely knowledgeable users on here, especially as the conversation goes under Canon's radar. Im excited to see who else shows up!

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.

Thank you all for your great feedback! We have now opened the avatars so you are able to upload your own. Click on the 'My Settings' link on the top of the page, and you'll notice an 'Avatars' tab. There is now an option to 'Upload on Avatar.'
