    Hi Andre,

    Read what you missed - you'll be tested tomorrow. Failure will result in your being flogged with a cat-o'-nine-cable releases.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome, as for what happened, well, some issues with my youngest son, as you all can imagine, not so much time or brains for other things than him.

    Fortunately, all back to normal now, that feeling for photography is coming back and my return to APUG a reality, the storm as passed and calm waters lay ahead.:smile:

    As for photography, well, mainly tried to make some kids images, visited alot the websites of Nicole, Cheryl Jacobs and Suzanne, trying to understand how to deal with this amazingly difficult discipline, some success, some failure, you know...:confused:

    Better to dedicate myself to my non moving subjects, I just love a rock, stays there shut up and doesn't go anywhere, respect for the work of these ladies:D, isn't easy at all.

    Otherwise, new cameras, more books, less hair and many ideas, let's see if I can catch up where I left.

    With the help of your images, your talent, unique dedication to others and friendship, I think I will be back soon stronger than ever.



    Cheers to you all






    André

    Welcome back!

    Welcome back. No doubt that trying to photograph moving targets with their own opinions is no easy task. Fortunately, there's no rule saying that you have to photograph only one type of subject matter.

    All the best,
    Daniel

    Welcome back Andre! You are right about Nicole, Cheryl, and Suzanne. Their work is inspiring and I really admire their dedication and talent. I prefer my subjects nonmoving as well.
