    Thought I'd start off seeing as the newbies may be wondering why this place is empty :)

    Most people here know me so far I think but I'll introduce myself to those who don't.

    My name is Amanda
    Im 26
    Live in Sydney
    Im an amateur and photography is a hobby. I have a digital and have only owned an SLR for a few months.
    I put up photos on my photoblog most days at http://shutterfly.diary-x.com
    I like wearing my pj pants around the house and love U2.
    When I grow up I want to be a cowgirl.

    Hi Manda!!

    Hi everyone else. I just found this place from a link on my friend Manda's website, and I thought I would jump in, as I am myself trying to get my long dormant photography bug jumping. I am a member at a community rental darkroom and I am also volunteering every Saturday at a local gallery (Blue Sky Gallery). I am almost 32 and I live in Portland OR. I probably won't be able to share any of my pics as I do not have a scanner.

    Nice to meetcha!

    What the heck, I'll throw myself into the lion's den.

    My real name is Darryl, I'm 34 yo and currently live in Newcastle, Australia. I say currently because my job tends to move me around a bit (Air Force).
    Got into Photography while working in East Timor, but got into digital photography after buying a (crappy) Sony Cybershot while overseas last year. Dumped the Sony and purchased an Olympus C-730 in January and have since gone crazy.
    I don't want to be a Cowgirl when i grow up (hate outback dunnies), I can't wear boxer shorts under jeans and i don't like mushrooms! I do enjoy MTB riding, bushwalking and of course picy taking.

    Next!!!!!!

    Howdy,

    I always wanted to be a cowboy when I grew up. Now, pushing 60, I still havn't grown up. So, on a few weekend a month, I put on my cowboy hat, grab my six-guns and go play cowboy with about 50,000 of my friends.

    When I'm not trying to play Roy Rogers, I shoot pictures. I love photography and am getting back into it after a long absence.

    Sup y'all

    I am Chad
    25 yrs of age
    I live in Gilbert, AZ but home will always be in Colorado.
    I work in Tech Support for online schooling

    I would love to open a business idea that I have had for a while now. It involves photography, specifically a place to manipulate and print photos. A rent-a-digital darkroom if you will.

    Oriecat.....I don't have a film scanner either, and you don't need one just for web posting. I wouldn't use it for printing anyway and this is the reason I can't justify buying one. Depending on the lab you use, you can have your negs or chromes scanned to a Kodak CD plus your prints or slides, and post them to a photo hosting site from the CD and transport them from there. There are several sites available for this.

    I guess I forgot to mention, my main thang is black and white, and I do it myself at the community lab. But thanks for the thought, dlc! :) Actually I do have a bunch of stuff scanned that way, I always get my pics on disk when I do color. I might dig for some good shots that I got behind the scenes working on my bf's movie and share em.
