    Hello,

    Im a dutch man, trying to get nice results with my old camera. a Sony DSLR A100 in good performance.
    I also am a Linux admin so i use Linux apps like GIMP (the opensource photoshop equivalent) and i tried out programs like Darktable and RawTherapee and others, and Darktable ( also for MS Windows) was my pick for the editing.

    Back in the days of film photography i had a Nikon and several lenses, and... ..a nice attic darkroom with a development lamp i burrowed from my neighbor and the chemicals. I must say i never had this notion of all the settings. i shot on ISO400 film, black and white. i was around 14 or 15. Later i sold it all, and went on becoming an IT-dude.

    Now learning the real playing with light and dark in color, although black and white is still my preference. i started with some relatively point and shoot camera, then an Olympus ez550 and got frustrated about the fringing of the lens. So i found this beautiful Sony camera and i love it.

    well, now you know me a little, i hope to talk to/with you soon. :D

    Welcome! Hang around long enough and you might see a few "not so nice" comments, but by and large it's a great place. You will learn a lot.

    Hi OldCam, welcome !
    I am new too and also from Holland :)
    Linux is one thing on my list to learn.
    I installed linux mint once on a virtual drive
    and I enjoyed it.
    Only thing with Linux is that not many big games support it.
    When that day comes I will switch to linux :)

    I hope you will have a goed time here :)

    I hope you too will have a good time. Some clashes with other cultures can occur on here, :smile: but that said i can also be a bit to much helpful sometimes.
