Salut from Montréal Canada

I'm a 48 years old french canadian guy from Montréal, Canada. I worked as a "retoucheur photo" in a major newspaper in Montréal called La Presse.

I have a passion about photography since the early 80's with the discovery of a great photographer who worked at La Presse newspaper: Antoine Désilets.
He was(is) a photojournalist with a very strong sense of the "decisive moment" and had a eye for those littles things in everyday life.
I learned a lot trough his books on photography.

Because of him:wink: and some other like Bresson, Capa etc...i bought a Nikon Fe, 50 mm 1,8 lens and made a lot of milleage with it.
After that, Nikon 601(first autofocus camera), Canon G1(first digital, raw files),Nikon D80 and today very happy with a Lumix Gf1.

Well that's about it folks. I'm not use to write that long in english since my first language is french. Hope everything is o.k. :smile: Have a nice day.

P.S. This place here is a great place to hang out. Very nice people and the admins very dedicated to the site. Cheers to them.

Salut Yves, votre écriture en langue anglaise est bien meilleur que mon français. En fait, je triche et d'utiliser Google Translate pour écrire ce post :biggrin:. Très heureux que tu nous ont rejoints ici à mu-43. Merci pour les aimables remarques sur nous les admins.

We should have a French speaking forum - I'm learning French right now (since Christmas). Michel Thomas makes it easier!

Cheers

I won't object to a french speaking forum but how many french speaking member are we?
English is a very universal langage and easy enough to learn i think.
I don't want to be cut from the rest of the people here by sticking in a lonely french forum. :smile:

And since web translaters are so so...i prefer to keep on learning english.

@Amin: thanks for your words in french.


cheers

English may be relatively easy for a French speaker to learn (since it's 80% badly pronounced French anyhow :rofl:) - but in terms of universal language, I think my 3rd language to learn would be Spanish... or perhaps Chinese?

Unfortunately, by the time I learn Chinese... someone will have invented a Babel fish. :rofl:

Cheers

Brian
