    Default Greetings from Barcelona, Spain

    Hello!

    my name is Raúl, I am in my middle 30's, pharmacist, and I live in Barcelona, Spain. I use to go to Roda de Barà (Tarragona, Spain) on weekends. It is a beautiful small village in the coast of Tarragona, famous for an ancient roman arc that we have. I have lots of hobbies in my life, and photography is one of them. Some other interests I have are astronomy, scuba diving, music (I try to play the violin ONLY when I'm alone at home) and many others.

    I am an amatuer photographer and I need to learn a lot to polish my skills, so here I am, willing to learn from you and willing to share my photos with you. I discovered digital photography in 2004, when I recieved as a present a Kodak CX-something point-and-shoot compact camera. It had a 2.0 megapixel sensor... whooouuuuu... Looking backwards it's amazing how the tecnology has evoluted. Few years later, in the 2008 I performed the jump to DSLR photography and I felt in love with Olympus, th 4/3 E-system, and the small E-410. Those days it was a beautiful dslr, with life view mode, ultrasonic sensor cleaning, the ziuko lenses, the prettiest image colors... Olympus offered me what other brands couldn't.

    Nowadays, I own the following equipment:

    -OM-10 + 50 1.4 OM + 24 2.8 OM (these are recent adquisitions)

    -E-410 + grip
    -E-3 + grip

    -ZD 8 mm 3.5 fisheye
    -ZD 11-22 2.8 mm
    -ZD 14-54 2.8 mm
    -ZD 50 mm 2.0 macro
    -ZD 50-200 2.8 mm
    -ZD 7-14 4.0
    -ZD 35-100 2.0
    -ZD 150 2.0

    -EC-1.4
    -EX-25
    -FL-36 & FL50R

    -Sigma 150 mm 2.8 macro


    -Blazzeo wireless transmitters for Strobist
    -Blazzeo reflectors...
    -Starblitz Newtonian reflector telescope 900mm/114 with equatorial mount. I am starting with astrophotography, it is very complex!!!

    The E-410, 11-22, 14-54 and 50 mm macro are my underwater equipment. I need to buy a couple of Inon Z540 flashes... but I need cash!! Underwater equipment is very expensive and requieres lots of training and skills (and good material) to achieve acceptable results. Not yet for me!!

    Well, I dont know what else to tell you right now. Whatever you may want to know just ask me ok? :-)

    thank you very much,
    Raúl
    (my grammar it's a bit rusty! I encourage you to please correct any error. I think that this forum is also a great chance for me to practice and improve my english)
