    Hey guys, I wanted my 1000th post to be something special. So here goes. When I joined this forum, I was oblivious to how anything worked (not only on here but with any forum really). I came here looking for advice and did the typical noob thing and asked questions right off the bat without establishing any kind of relation with people. I have come to realize that it takes everyone to work together on here to keep things in line. I have seen many new people on here, some great, some not so but the fact is, we're all here to improve and help make ourselves better (with the exception of a few trollers...;))
    I have learned many things during the past year of being a member here at TPF. I have gotten a much better grasp on things such as composition and most importantly, the exposure triangle. I am starting to venture out of the "normal" exposure on the meter and exploring under/over exposure to get the shot I think is right. I know more about cameras now than I ever have and I thank all of those who have helped me. I still have much much more to learn and I ain't leavin anytime soon! :mrgreen: I have even found myself giving tips to beginners who are just getting started. Photography makes me so happy and I hope to someday take pictures that are hanging on people's walls. Thanks again to everyone and here's to many more years of meeting great people! Anyway, enough blabbin, I gotta shoot my picture for my 365! :D


    Edit: BTW as a celebration, I bought the 50mm 1.4! lol

    Nice post. I've been here about a year and have learned tons.

    However, in one forum I frequent, "milestone posts" (1000, 5000, 10,000,--one guy is close to 200,000) are celebrated with "babe threads"--dozens of pics of scantily clad women (the membership is overwhelmingly male). I'm not sure that would go over very well here...:lol: (besides, we can post pics of naked women here--but we have to take the photos ourselves)

    :cheers:

    I got it from adorama but the thing is, I had a 100 dollar rebate credit card I received when I bought my new phone so I figured I'd use it towards that but when you pay, it asks for your card number so I typed it in. Obviously I still need to pay the other $250. I tried calling them yesterday around 8 and they closed at 1:15 or something... I'm expecting an email soon lol. I just want it before next weekend! (goin on vacation!)
