|I'm born (1960) and
grew up in
Vienna/Austria. For the time I'm living with my family (hubby, three
children and one dog) in Northern Norway. Actually north from the Arctic
Circle ........... guess who's freezing all the time - LOL! Of course I'm missing my home country, but I try to visit Austria and my
family there regularly.
I bought my first PhotoImpact (version 7)
in the beginning of 2002, and joined a group, called Newbies. There I've
learned a lot about PI and I'm really grateful for all the help I got
from all the wonderful people in this group. So if you are new to
PhotoImpact and want to learn much about it - join the group, you will
not regret it!
Now I've got version 8 of PI and I guess most of my tutorials will
be done with this version.
By the time I'm changing the layout of my site and rewriting some
pages - February 2006 -, I've got PI 10 (have had it almost for
one year now), and I'm still writing tutorials :))
My first camera (and my second one
too!) I "inherited" from my father. He has always liked to
take pictures and was really glad that I had the same interest in
photography as he had. I guess I also got infected with this kind of "travel
fever" from him .............. I really love traveling around
............ with my camera following me!
In my early 20th I've been a lot around in Europe, the Mediterranean and
North Africa. Lately there haven't been to many trips to foreign
countries, so I just take my camera and take photos from my
In the summer 2001 I bought my
first own camera (I'm talking about SLR camera, and not the usual
compact cameras!), a Canon EOS 300
with a 28-90mm objective. And guess
what Santa, the same year, had in his sack for me .................. a
suitable 75-300mm objective. What more could I wish - LOL!
In the meantime, I've got a
digital camera, a CANON Powershot S50, and as you might can guess
... I'm really enjoying the easy way of taking photos.
