I got my first SLR/DSLR camera the day before thanksgiving as an early xmas present for myself so I've only been taking pictures for less than three months. In that time I have taken exactly 1,000 exposures (I know....I don't get enough time to shoot, I should have at least 10,000 by now). I still have to get out and take the typical noob flower macro's and landscapes, but I'd thought I'd dive in and try to master taking pictures in low light of a constantly moving subject (my newborn son). A bounce flash and diffuser is HUGE! I'm trying to tackle HDR photography next but found my limitations with my ancient version of photoshop 6.0. I'll be upgrading to CS3 as soon as I can get a new computer with at least a gig of RAM! You guys can be brutal, I've put my 2 cents in on a few cirtiques..enjoy!
