    Hi all, I am new to the four thirds game (and photography, really). I have a few cameras, a Fuji HS30, Fuji X10 and now a Panasonic GF1.

    I've joined a wonderful photography club here in Castle Hill and only yesterday attened a model shoot that was set up just for us to practice shooting in natural light.

    One thing I have learned is that I am going to need more than one prime lens to get the most out of this new fella. I've also learned that trying to take photos next to 15 other photogs of the same image is not enjoyable. No matter how wonderful the models or other photographers are, there is just too much pressure to get a picture and I don't like that at all.

    Here is a sample shot that was taken on the X10 (not a 4/3, but it is a nice shot, if somewhat grainy):

    G'day Buffalo. It's a nice photo you've captured there & the guy doesn't look too unwilling either. :wink:

    Good to see you here & hope you get into it more.

    I'm glad you like the shot. The models hadn't actually interacted too much at that stage so I suggested she grab his tie and pull him in.
    I think it worked out well.

    Thanks very much for the warm welcome.

    That was even better if that was your suggestion as it is a great pose. :2thumbs:
