    I have been lurking for several days - reading posts and deciding if I wanted to join this forum. I have been favorably impressed with many of the answers to questions that were posed, so I decided to join.

    I am fairly new to digital photography (about 3 years), but was a 35mm film fanatic for many years before that (don't even want to think about the number of years)!

    I own a Canon 20D and a 5D, plus a few lenses, tripod, monopod, flash units, etc. I enjoy portrait photography, macro, wildlife, landscapes - in other words, most forms of photography.

    I am still trying to figure out all the possibilities of photoshop, but I have finally gotten to the point where I can improve, rather than degrade images.

    I own many photography books, and thankfully, have enough experience to be able to understand most of them. I still have a lot to learn, and find that learning to be a very enjoyable experience.

    I shoot mostly manual, including manual focus most of the time, but am trying to force myself to use AF more frequently.

    I am not, and have no intention of becoming a professional photographer, but hopefully, this forum will help me in my quest to become a reasonably talented amateur.
