My name is Lai Hon Foo from Kuching, Sarawak. I started taking photos in 1998 when I bought a film camera, the Samsung AF-333. I like taking photos anywhere I go, especially when traveling. I switched to digital when my sister bought me an Olympus U Digital (compact camera) from Singapore in 2006. I switched to a Samsung ES55 (compact camera) in 2009 and used it until 2010, when I bought a new DSLR Nikon D90 with a used Nikkor Zoom lens, 18-200mm. In the middle of 2012, I purchased a 105mm maco and am now more interested in maco photography.

I hope, I can learn more from study group members and improve my photography. And, I also hope study group members can give me guidance and advice in photography.
