Member of the week is my mate from dA, Ockie
so get asking questions then
Will there be a new avatar theme this week?
What new adventures would you like to see Colin get involved in?
Tell us a little about yourself
so you doing anything good on July 13th???
Ockie. Oi! Ockie. Oi! Ockie, Ockie, Ockie?
New avatar theme, why not?
Colin... haven't seen him for a while, so I guess any adventure proving he is still alive and well would do for now, but perhaps something outside in the sun would be great, make sure he has a hat on
And about myself... here goes:
I'm 20, born and living in Spain, both parents are dutch. I'm studying Computer Science since 2 & half years ago at the University of Málaga, and liking it less and less... (guess it has something to do with photography, which I'm liking more and more).
Feels kind of weird to write about myself, so I won't add much more... I won't say what kind of music I like because its nearly everything, from classic music to electronic trance and from rock to country...
As long as its not "reggueton" (crappy music they play in the disco's here).
Started taking photography more less serious since last year February more less.
I sure hope so... if anyone is on Holidays then near Marbella... come to "Dreamers-Disco", I'll hopefully be there enjoying a concert / session from Dj Tijs Verwest aka Dj Tiësto
What who where why?
Hello RyMo about my username:
Well, about 10 years ago my older brother (from fathers side only) who lives in Holland used that name for online games, since I was quite "addicted" to online gaming back then I also started using that name, and have been using it for online accounts ever since really... I only have been watermarking my photo's with my real name (Ockerse) since about a month or two...
What should the avatar be this week?
What is your favorite thing to shoot?
Post your favortie shot that you have taken and favorite shot that someone here has taken.
post your favorite picture of yourself
Avatars should be Penguins vs Otters. Or cookies if neutral.
My favorite "thing" to shoot is people. People living their daily lives - often referred to as Street Photography I believe .
I like to shoot that with cameras that are older than me on 400 ISO film's pushed to 1600 in developing (I love film grain)
My favorite shot is:
And my favorite posted here is one from Andy, I can't find it, it was posted a long time ago... its a photo of a Spitfire... he sent it to me in high res and I got it printed for a uncle of mine who flew in Spitfires in WW2.
Here it is: http://www.hardpointphotography.fotopic.net/p24279721_v10.html
Hmm, I don't have much of those... besides that I don't lend my camera to much people... Anyhow, a more less recent photo my mom took is:
and another one I don't dislike would be:
Native 2 - Spanish and Dutch
Good 1 - English
understand but too lazy to speak most of the time: French and German
Oh great, another member with an evil streak!!
Love that shot, Ockie!!!
If you could go anywhere and do anything for a 3 week vacation, where would you go?
Hmm, I think it would be to the US, I was there 10 years ago with my parents and I remember I really liked it...
3 weeks might still be short for a trip to the US though... oh well.
^^^^ Uhhh, can you narrow it down a bit? US is a big place. What would you want to see/do?
