Another newbie here....

Stumbled on your great forum. Looks like lots of information that I am continuing to read. Picking up my first premade Nova 100 green laser and looking at a blu-ray.

I am in the heart of silicon valley (south of San Francisco if u aren't sure). Computer security by day, and landscape and nature photography by night. Looking to incorporate lasers possibly into night photography or just illuminating those wide open landscapes at night. My photography website is located here

Thanks,
John in Sunnyvale, California

Hi, John, and welcome to the forum.
There is suppost to be swap meet near your location that one of the members here says is a good place to pick up lots of laser goodies. I think it is De Anza, but not sure.

@tymtravler- look in the newspaper. Usually I only hear about them by word of mouth. In this case, I think it was Benm who mentioned it. Or was it Laser_Ben?:undecided:

Thanks for the welcome. I know they have flea markets there often but have never been. it is just a mile or so from my house. Laser_ben lives only 2 miles away so I will connect with him. We might need to have a bay area laser meet-up!

cheers
John

hmm.. i'm straight in the capitol in the silicon valley in San Jose... currently a student co-op (similar to an internship) at Cisco.

i stumbled across LPF the other day and have been reading threads like a mad man...

thinking of trying to meet up with a few forum members here that are knowledgeable and learn somemore before i drop my wallet into purchasing a laser.

after hours of reading, i might do a diy kit or a pre-assembled one from a forum member... looks promising and very much within budget vs a production one from a website. (though there are great ones out there.. can't really afford one.. :undecided: )

well.. glad to see other folks from the bay area :)
