Hello, My name is kendrick and im from mansfield, tx. I started out here in november of 2006 and i would just browse the forums and read what other people posted, I didnt actually decide to join until feb but since then i've been posting some not much but some. Im becoming more acquainted with the site and its starting to get somewhat addicting. My photography background hasn't been much to talk about. I've always had a passion for photography since i can remember i never went without a camera to events and it started to grow into more. I had a lot of point and shoots and finally i couldnt take the kind of pictures i wanted to so i wanted to move up to a film slr and take photography in high school. My dad ended up not letting me because he thinks its a waste of time and i should focus on something else. I finally got a camera for graduation in january and it hasnt left my side since.
