Hello everyone! I've been a lurker here for quite some time and finally decided to take the plunge, grab a flickr account, and introduce myself.

My hubby bought me a beautiful camera a few years back and I have just never learned to use it to its potential. Sadly, it's been in the "auto" mode pretty much since I received it. I have taken a Digital Photography class at LSC and am currently taking a class through community ed and am hoping that I can finally start taking some pictures while not on "auto".

I shoot a Nikon D70 and have a handful of lenses for it. I absolutely love working in Lightroom2 and Photoshop CS3 and am currently subscribed to Kelby Training to increase my working knowledge of those two programs.

Do you get together often as a group? Do you mentor other photographers?

Teach me! LOL

I look forward to getting to know all of you better. :)

Welcome to the group! We do get together pretty often. As a matter of fact, a bunch of us are getting together as a group on Sunday for a nerd shoot. Feel free to come! The information for that is in another thread titled Nerd shoot. :-)

We also get together for monthly meetings and people get together here and there to do photo walks and things like that. Just keep an eye on threads here as people will sometimes organize things like that through here.

Hi Kim! Welcome! As you'll soon realize, Flickr is a WEALTH of knowledge and a fantastic source of motivation and inspiration. Be forwarned, however, it can consume you if you're not careful (trust me...I wasn't careful). ;) The people on here are just as awesome as the next person and THAT'S what makes this so dang addicting to some people. And the DPG is fantastic as well. I'm a newbie here as well, and the DPG has been a wonderful experience! I've met a ton of great people because of it! :)

As for helping one another, that typically costs a lot. So, with that said, I'll gladly help ya out with whatever you need to know. And if I don't have the answer, I know the peeps who do. But that'll cost ya double. ;)

Wow, what a warm welcome! Thank you so much.

Shana Jo - Thanks for the invite to the Nerd Shoot. Sadly, I have another commitment or I would be there! I even would have brought an accordion to add to the mix. I just know that you're picturing the awesome nerd shots you could have gotten with my accordion .... maybe another time!

Jason - Can I pay you with cookies or baked goods? :) I'll go through my photos and get some up here on Flickr. I haven't been real good about getting my photos online.

Sharksurfer - I'll look forward to hearing about the meeting. I've flagged my calendar for April 23rd and will look around on here for the details.

Brynn, HBRm Aaron, and Shawn, thanks for the welcome.

I look forward to getting to know all of you.
