Hello from the Red Sea

Discussion in 'Welcomes and introductions' started by Terry King, Sep 24, 2010.

  1. Hi Everyone, I'm living at a big new University here on the Red Sea in Saudi Arabia (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology) but home is Vermont USA. What a contrast, in multiple channels!

    This seems like a great group with lots of friendly experts, and activity. Glad I found you all.

    I recently helped start a Photography Group here at KAUST (RedSeaPhoto.Info) and we are planning to buy a representative set of cameras of a wide range of prices/types for the Group, so members can try out a variety of cameras for a few days to decide what level they want. The 4/3 system now places cameras like the Lumix GH1 etc. in a price range where many more people can afford a true DSLR. Any comments of suggestions on this type of Club activity would be appreciated.

    I am doing pro stuff for the University magazine etc.. I plan to have club members 'shadow' more pro shooters on some assignments, to see the process and decision-making. Any suggestions on this or similar approaches appreciated. I feel that photography is best learned with a live camera in your hand and a real subject.

    So, I'm glad to find this group! My background is Engineering, Electronics, Broadcast, Audio, Software .. let me know if I can help answer stuff like that.

    Regards, Terry King ..On the Red Sea at KAUST.edu.sa
