After finally accepting my old Minolta 370 SLR 35mm was unrepairable, I picked up a Canon Rebel T3 digital SLR. I've used digital cameras for years, although now-a-days my Iphone tends to be what I use most for day to day pics. I wasn't quite sure how well I would like a DSLR, but I'm actually liking it quite a lot.
I'm a amateur 3d modeler. I'm also a gamer and modder. My favorite game genres are FPS and RTS. My game modding interest drew me into modeling. I'm self-taught and have worked with 3DS max since v3 but currently I am using v9. Mainly because Max 9 supports the correct export format for the game I'm modding at the present. My models tend to stay relatively low poly to keep inline with the graphics requirements of the game. My weakness is creating realistic textures for my models.
I've also built and collected props and prop replicas for most of my adult life, primarily in the science-fiction genre. My main prop interests in that area are weapons and field equipment. At one time I had quite a large collection but years ago I had to sell pretty much all of it. Since that time I've slowly been building my collection back up although I've kept it restricted to replicas this time around. Not quite as expensive but just as enjoyable.
