Hi, my name is Scott and I'm an alcoholic.... whoops, wrong forum I started to mess with photography in 1997 and soon after bought a Canon Elan IIe, which is still my primary film camera. I got away from phtography for awhile and am now getting into it again. I'm thinking of getting Digital Rebel or 10D soon. I was looking for a nice friendly place to learn about photography and get advice and it looks like I've found it. I'm not easily offended and tend to have a dark and twisted sense of humor (look in the artsy self-portrait topic for an example). I tend to shoot airplanes, cars, and women (not necessarily in that order) and especially like candid shots (its always nice to get a shot of a plane when it doesn't know its getting its picture taken). I look forward to participating in the forums.
