    I totally missed this forum!

    Okay, well, my name is Antonio, I got into photography about a year ago. I've been into cars pretty much my entire life, and when I started getting more involved with online communities, I noticed that other people had some really nice photos of their cars. I looked into photography a bit, but the costs turned me away initially, it would take away too much from mod money :D
    My first break came when my Mom bought a D40. I finally had a DSLR available to play around with. I ended up using it way more than she did. After some time, I became really dissatisfied with the capabilities of the D40, but I still wasn't willing to shell out my own coin to get a camera.
    The second major turning point was when I decided to go for a year in Korea to teach English. I wanted to continue with photography, but I wouldn't have a camera anymore, since the D40 wasn't mine. Fortunately, I knew someone selling a full kit bag of equipment. A Canon Rebel XTi with the 18-55 kit lens, a 75-300 telephoto, UV filters, circular polarizer, and a weird crosshatch filter that I never use. Also came with a bag and four memory cards.
    Before I left for Korea, I picked up this little diffuser attachment for my pop up flash, that I'm pretty fond of, and then finally when I got here, I picked up a tripod.

    So now I'm in Korea, and mostly just documenting my various adventures, but I still like to take a few fun shots here and there to exercise my artistic side. I plan on picking up a 50mm prime soon, and exploring my artistic side a bit more, but I may wait until it gets a bit warmer, it's about -11C here right now, and it takes a lot of the joy out if it for me.
    Anyway, I wrote too much, that's all :D

    Not enough people take the time to write about themselves...this is what makes a community a community. We get not enough intro posts like this, and way too many drive by posters.

    Welcome!

    Do you post your images somewhere?

    I've yet to live up to the name though haha. C&C is welcome on any of them. Oh yea, and I desperately need a graduated ND filter for a lot of my pics, but I only learned of the existence of such a thing when I joined here :D
