    My name is Thomas and I was bitten by the photo-bug quite young when my dad got me a Kodak Instamatic
    (that should give you an idea of how ancient I am).
    From there it was a Pentax K1000, then a Nikkormat...
    I taught my ex how to use it and she dropped it within a month destroying the camera and lens.... :grumpy:
    Picked up a Nikon-F to replace it eventually (always lusted after that camera).
    Finally overcame my 'film only' mentality with an Olympus D370, then back to a Nikon with the 'prosumer' D5700.
    (but I hated the shutter-lag.)
    My most recent acquisition is a Nikon D5000 (Which I am just learning to use.)

    and.... Here I am. :D

    Hi Thomas. Glad to see you here. I am relatively new to this site also and am trying to learn through reading advice from more experienced folks and viewing other people's photos.

    Thanks for the welcome.:hug::

    I'm fairly new to digital but have been shooting film for ages.
    99.99% of shots are 'properly exposed' so the most important thing is your 'eye'.
    'Seeing' a shot is the hardest thing, exposure control is easy.
    Most of us go through life looking at the world from about 5' 6" off the ground,
    The world looks very different to a 3" tall person, or a camera 3" above the ground.
    Look at the masters, Ansel to Leibowitz, Stigler to Bourke-White,
    and my personal favorite (next to Ansel Adams) Henri Cartier-Bresson.

    Strictly IMHO,
    Thomas
