Hi everyone!

Hi there everyone, dj69 here. I'm not a disc jockey though, just a David John. I'm a Technology and Design teacher here in Belfast and just stumbled on this site the other day. Once I saw the big homemade ring flash I simply had to join. I've lost my photography mojo and I hope this forum might kickstart it... Here's hoping.

David.

Very sorry, we use these all the time and forget that new people often don't know the TLAs (Two/Three Letter Abreviations) that get used a lot.

But always ask, you will be amazed how many others will read the answer.

Re: Hi everyone!

Hi David,
A very big welcome from me.
We are a diverse group with lots of ideas and a passion for our hobby. We enjoy sharing a joke with one another, as well as discussing our photographs and you can ask all those questions you have never known the answer to, somebody will help.
I look forward to seeing some pics.
Shirley
