Great to have some more Queenslanders.

Don't take any notice of what they say about us Down South!

As a born and bred Queenslander, it has never occurred to me that anyone south of the border has an opinion of us that was worth taking notice of! :)

Just thought i'd leave a message, i'm new to this forum. I'm glad i found it. I live in Ipswich. Hubby brought me a Nikon D80 last year and i'm still learning how to use it. Looking around for some Photography courses. Love taking photos of our daughter, kids make for great subjects(well sometimes).

Hope to make some good photog friends here.

I thought the D70 had reached the end of its manufacturing life, as well as the D200 that are on offer because of the new expected arrival. As I heard at my last Brisbane Camera Group meeting.

By the way, I am from Dizzy Brizzy too!

Its my first SLR so still learning the ropes but having heaps of fun. Hoping to get some great shots when I travel to Europe later in the year. Joined up looking for some tips and techniques etc. Everyone seems nice enough so I thought I should say hi.

So, hi! :)



hey hey, i'm also a brisbane-ite, giving my shout-out from kenmore! boney, when and where are you going over seas? i'm headed over for 5 weeks starting mid august.

Hi

I am a photograher from Boonah but work in Ipswich. I love the Nikon and want to upgrade my D40x to a D3 or D300.
As i am only a small person i am worried that the D3 would be to heavy.
Look forward to hearing from any other local photographers

I'll be in Brissie in early Aug, and again 3 weeks later, so I'll keep an eye out for any meets around those times. Hopefully I'll have a camera again by then, heh. :D

Short notice, I know, but I'm in Brisbane for just over a week and finally have a camera again, so am looking for shooting ideas/locations. Any suggestions from those in the know? I can find my way around but when I lived here (for just a few years), I wasn't really into photography so I'm sort of clueless re good locations.

The Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens usually have interesting wildlife around the lake. They open at 8am.
Walkabout Creek at Brisbane Forest Park Headquarters has heaps of wildlife opportunities including a walk through aviary and wallaby enclosure. It's open from 9am with a small entry fee.
Southbank also has lots of photographic opportunities 24 hours a day.
Depends what your interests are really.

Good point, bluebell - interests might differ from person to person. I'm open to most types of photography, so any recommendations welcome. :)

I've not done much wildlife photography but Mt Coot-tha Bot Gdns could be good. Might actually head to the lookout now and see what the sunset does. Southbank too would probably be worth a stroll.

Thanks for the ideas.
