    Hi everyone,

    my name is Tilman and I'm originally from Germany. Currently I'm living in the UK, working in London (but living in Milton Keynes - after a few years in the city we decided to move out).
    I work in Visual Effects for movies, as Compositing Artist (we're the guys who put all the different elements of a visual-effects-shot together and hopefully make it look like it was shot with a camera :) )

    Since I don't get to travel as much as I would like my photography mostly happens on my commute to work or on weekend walks with my wife. That's also the reason why I prefer compact cameras. I never have to "pack my gear and go out shooting". I'm pretty much always "out shooting" :)
    I collected a few compacts over the time (but I guess compared to others it's not so bad ;) There's a Fuji F30, the Sigma DP1 and DP2, and just last week I bought a Samsung NX100.

    I guess I'll add one shot from each camera as "introduction".
    See you on the forums!

    Welcome to the forum Tilman. Are you fed up with all the roundabouts in Milton Keynes yet?:biggrin:

    You have an obvious talent for photography judging by the images above. I will look forward to seeing some more!

    Thanks guys for your welcoming words! Glad you like my photos! :)

    @Ghosthunter: hehe, no, still liking the grid roads and roundabouts. (if my car didn't have automatic transmission that might be a different matter though. Not used to shifting gears with the left arm :-D )

    @Tord: In all honesty, there are definitely more interesting (and nicer) places to visit in the UK than Milton Keynes. It's a good place to live though... :)
