We seem to have quite a few Italian members here lately and I love it…I love photography, I love Italy and I definitely love Photoblog , thanks to @canon6d for his ingenuity :smile:

Hi there,

My name is Diede and I’m new to the world of photography. For years I’m fascinated by photography, but never really made the real first step. So now, here I am :raising_hand_woman: :camera:

Hope to learn a lot form you guys, and to be inspired :slight_smile:


(Berckmans Peter) #313

Welcome Diede,happy to have you here.


(Björn Roose) #314

Hi all, my name is Björn (meaning “bear”, but I’m the teddy version, no worries :smiley: ).

I was (and for the moment still am) on Flickr, but chose to move to PhotoBlog instead of paying the ransom there (I have 11 000 pictures on that site). Been “shooting” since ages, but am thus totally new to Photoblog.

Oh yeah, the saying “hi” thingy: hi @dvgz, and hi everybody else :slight_smile: (tried to use the @ twice, but apparently new users can’t do that)


(D Vgz) #315

Hi Björn/Teddy :wink:

Welcome, looking forward to see your photos here!


(Björn Roose) #316

Thanks, Diede, more photos are on the way :ok_hand:


(Jon) #317

Hi I am Jon. I’m an old dude. I’ve been a Photoblog member since Aug 2005. My first Photoblog contribution were photos from a ZZ Top concert.

I posted many photos to the previous version of Photoblog but eventually my life got complicated and I stopped posting. I started exploring the new Photoblog and sharing photos again a few months ago.

I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, and doing anything near the water. Enjoy photographing nature, people, my travels and motorcycles. I have a Canon EOS 60D and a Canon PowerShot SX 50 HS. Guess what ? Most recent photos are shot with my trusty iPhone.

I’m not a technology enthusiast, no Tweeting, Instagram etc… and I struggle with new things such as posting on community blogs. Thanks for welcoming me .


(Berckmans Peter) #318

Nice to have you back


(Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue) #319

welcome back - maybe with some more ZZ Top pictures? :wink:


(Sudiardi Sudyono) #320

Hello there! I am Sudiardi from Singapore. I am a freelance production crew and I enjoy photography. One of my dream is to open a halal ramen shop here in Singapore.

I join PhotoBlog to get off Instagram for awhile. I hope I can be inspired by the photos shared by the community.

@visualyard welcome . There is a ton of tallent and inspiration here :slight_smile:


(Phil Clark) #322

Hi I’m Phil from NZ, originally from East Sussex, UK.

I stumbled across PB via @girafferacing and her Goodwood IPG contributions lol. Must say I’m impressed by the platform. But before I hit the Upgrade to Pro button, I had some concerns about stability/reliability of the platform as well as longevity? Welcome your views please as to whether its worth time investing time, effort and money here :slight_smile:

All the best. Phil


(Lisa Britton) #323

Hi Phil,

Welcome, this is my 3rd year and starting my 3rd 365 project. Love, Love, Love this site. People are friendly and helpful - not snippy and derogatory, very positive and supportive of your work.

The site has had tech problems in the past, but they have been resolved and I wouldn’t go anywhere else.


(Berckmans Peter) #324

Welcome Phil.

Hope to see your work soon. For the moment the site is stabile. To be come a pro, the price is really low just go look to some other sites.The community you have here you find nowhere, and believe me the most of us have looked around. It is not pnly about photos if you want. It is about people ,stories and sometimes even feelings. For getting better in photography, you can aske every advice in the forum or read the articles in Learn. Give it a good change the blog is worth it.


(Phil Clark) #325

Thanks for the kind welcome :slight_smile: and info, certainly going to give it serious consideration. Cheers

Cheers @peterphotowalks too for the insights


(Kenny H) #326

That was a very good answer!!!


(Will Neville) #327

Hi @phil1066 and @visualyard! And hello PhotoBlog friends!

I myself am new to photoblog as of 4 days :slight_smile: I am Will aka culvi from North Carolina. My day job is UX design and I have always enjoyed taking photos but never daily or even monthly for that matter. I’ve always had an interest but as I get older I’d love to leave a visual document of my life for my children, their children, and so on. I didn’t have any of this growing up and figured, hey…why wait any longer right!!

So I have made a commitment to the photoblog 365 to try and step my skills up over the next year + and vlog as well. We will see where it leads me.
