  • Grrrreetings from not so sunny South Africa

    Brrr... it's cold this morning
    Hello everybody. Nice to be here.
    I have to say, it's all thanks to "The demystification of Dave Hill" that I decided to join LOL
    Great tutorial... I love this place.
    You know how hard it is to find a good forum on the net where "retouching" is accepted. So many places are either anti-retouching or just plain "blegh" hehe
    Been lurking since yesterday tryna figure out how everything works here.
    Gone throught the FAQ's and Etiquette, and I must say... I'm really impressed at how everything is so nice and organised.
    A little bit about me...
    I started with photoshop before I discovered the wonderful world of photography. Been taking photo's since the beginning of last year, so I'm still fairly new to all this. I absolutely love working with photoshop... and generally find a reason to open it LOL
    I'm a secretary, yet my job is very boring... Kinda have no work to do, so I'm online all day
    As you can see, I come from South Africa... I stay in Cape Town, and yes... I have a pet lion that I have named Nixon. (Just kidding... he's a sphynx)
    I'm going to bore you all to death if I carry on writing (another thing I enjoy doing)
    So let me go... lurk some more, and then meet you all in the forums.
    Cheers for now
    One more thing... people get confused with my "nick"... It's supposed to be Linkin, but I see there's already a Linkin here *waves*
    To get to my point... I'm female, not a guy haha

                Hi Link and Others

                Im also quite new to Retouch Pro and still getting to know my way around the site!

                Well Im also a female from Not so Sunny SA, I live in the not so Sunny right now - Durban! Winter is here, and man is it getting cold...... hahahaha

                Im new to photoshop been studying for about 4 months. And really enjoying
                everything that photoshop has to offer. I'm not a photographer, but it is
                something that I am interested in. Just trying to find my feet one step at a time.

                    Hi all,

                    I am not new to blogging, but I am not an expert either. It looks like a simple system and I think it is a good idea to have this sort of thing on the site, it helps increase traffic.

                    Anyway, I'm not sure exactly what I am going to put here. It will probably be...

                    Hi there
                    Stumbled across this site looking for night time lighting techniques somehow lol

                    Anyway I liked what I saw and joined instantly and wow I think I will fit in just nicely here.
                    Lots to learn and who knows maybe I have something to gve back, but it looks like you...

                    Hello from LA (lower Alabama)
                    by bethmrogers
                    I said hello on another post, but I thought I'd tell a bit more about myself here.
                    I've been running my own graphic and web design biz since '02, and recently branched out into publishing and portrait photography. I just got my first DSLR a few months ago, a Canon Xt, which I absolutely love....
