Just wanted to introduce myself to the forum. For a long time now I've wanted to get into the art of photography. I like many aspects, however I am most interested in photography's ability to allow us to show others a glimpse into our perception of reality. I see it as an avenue to show people visually how we as individuals perceive patterns in the world, nature, and many other aspects to daily life. I joined this forum to learn, as well as share my experiences. I hope you all will be patient in helping me as I begin my journey... Thanks!
