    Hello All,

    Thought I would just drop a quick hello.
    I have joined after having a look around at the boards, comments and examples of work (so impressed).

    Now to explain where I am coming from:
    I work as an Architectural Visualiser drawing buildings on CAD and producing animations and photo-realistic renders (as well as standard 2d architects drawings). I have always felt/been artistic but since moving to computer from the drawing board it all went stale.
    I can not draw freehand or paint as I can never achieve the detail that I am looking for or require in my image.

    Last year I turned to photography although I feel a fraud and dont see myself as a photographer, as I have more interest in the image and composition than I do about how the camera works, although I am sure my work would improve if I did have a better understanding of the mechanics.
    My web site has a selection of my work, many of the pics are just basic portraits, but every now and again I have one or two that are special to me and that I am proud of.

    Anyway, life's a learning curve so enjoy the ride.

    Please feel free to say hi if you see me in passing.

    Jason :)

    If you enjoy using the camera, spend time thinking about what you want to photograph and end up with something you're happy with you're a photographer in my eyes. But then, who gives a **** about labels?

    Welcome to the forum.


    Just a quick edit. You may want to add to your post that some pictures aren't worksafe. Just in case they're flicking through it and get to a picture of a topless man just as the boss is looking over their shoulder. :mrgreen:

    Welcome,

    I also use CAD in a professional manor and use photography as my artistic outlet. I'm more involved with engineering design and fabrication drawings than architectural stuff though. I have always like the photo-realistic renders that you guys do. I would think that some of the lighting experience used in rendering would come in handy for photography.

    Baggage handlers at Gatwick certainly don't.

    When you say things like that into a coffee cup, Smiles, I go all... gooey ;-)

    I just noticed you say you're in Bournemouth, Jason. I went to the Art College there (when it was at the Lansdowne). Keep meaning to go back and see old friends.

    Umm.... what (nonchalant pause) accents do you consider sexy... just out of interest, you understand?
