Hello everyone. Thought I would introduce myself before I started making replies and posts. I'm somewhat of an artist, then I expanded my outlet into photography and have had it as a hobby for a few years but I could learn a lot. I was fortunate last April to win a photography contest barely 2 weeks after I purchased my Nikon D50, submitted the winning photo the night before the deadline. The prize was only a $150 gift certificate to a camera store and the picture in the Knoxville News Sentinel, but the timing was really odd because unrelated circumstances caused me to quit my job the same week. Fortunately I had some money saved so I took some time off and used it to work on a website, so who knows? Maybe It'll lead to something. Anyway, that's a little bit about me.
