    Hello eveyone! I just wanted to officially introduce myself, after spending some time just reading and viewing others work on this site. I am excited to start learning more about this beautiful industry!

    I have always loved photography and finally at 34, I have finally taken the risk, stepped out of my 'comfort' zone to start the process of doing photography full time. (right now I still have a 8-5 job).

    I have done many family portraits and my passion, which is black and white, however those were all done with my canon rebel film camera. November this year I decided (with some hesitation) to invest in an Olympus E-510. Since I made this purchase, I have not regretted it once. I am having so much fun and absolutly love taking pictures with this amazing camera!

    Anyway, I am going to love this site and getting to know all you guys.
    I have already put the suggestions and ideas that have been posted on this site into use, and have helped me tremendously. Thank you for being an inspiration and instructor! I hope to always remain teachable.
