I've been interested in photography for quite some time. I've been lurking on this forum for almost 2 weeks reading alot of the tuturials you have to offer. I finally decided to take the plunge and bought a Canon Rebel XS for a starter camera. Honestly, I had a hard time putting the thing down since I took it out of the box. I've been playing with cameras for years, but never really got into the whole "pro" quality cameras. I blame this on going to carshows and waiting for people to post high res pictures of my own car. Now i can take them myself. I'm going to be working on getting used to the camera's functions, working on basics, and kicking myself for not taking that photography class in college I'm fairly familiar with Photoshop (currently have CS5). I'll upload a few pictures I took earlier and worked with in PS and post them up in a bit. I look forward to learning and contributing here!
