Hello all, I've all ready enjoyed reading some of the great information on this site. Its nice, as someone who is learning, to have a place to go to where there are so many knowledgable people willing to help. I'm currently reading a few books to teach myself the finer points of photography. Also teaching myself Photoshop. My dang 40 hour a week job tends to take up a lot of the time that I'd rather dedicate fully to photography but hey, I can't complain, it pays the bills.:mrgreen: I'm from the St. Louis, Missouri area and love to shoot all sorts of different shots and MAY possibly help shoot some photos in the future for a book on haunted houses that is in the works. (Not crazy about that, but it could be fun.) My family sometimes refer to me as the "mamma-razti" as I usually have my camera in hand but look forward to making good shots terrific ones!
