Would like to meet some new friends into photography.
I feel most comfortable shooting nature, but would really like to get more into portraits. Would be great if your also comfortable in front of a camera that way I can practice any tips and tricks you have to share on the spot. Any people I have shot so far tend to be outdoors, as I am not very knowledgeable about lighting and all I have is the built in flash on my camera, and two slave units, which I have barely tried out yet.
I will actually be west of Cleveland, in North Ridgeville, Lorain County.
Also would appreciate any info on really "great places" to shoot.
