    Hi my name is Steven.
    I'm 22 working full-time, school part-time
    (to become a Honda mechanic soon).
    I joined this site because I've always been into photography.
    I've owned a few point&shoot digi cameras a few years ago but never got serious about it.
    Well, that time has come and I want to get into photography as a hobby and just be able to get out there and enjoy it.

    I just literally joined this site tonight. Hoping to learn more and distinguish a beginner camera to start with.

    looking into a canon or a nikon.

    Thank you!

    Hi Steven, welcome.

    BTW Steven, I like NIKON. (I just learned today that it's pronounced nee-con as in artist)

    Welcome to TPF, Steven.

    The places you listed are a good start. Also B&H Photo (link is at the top right hand side of the page)...you might get better help from an actual camera store than from a 'big box' store that happens to sell cameras.

    I'm in NC, just south of you.

    I try to stay away from the big boxes, but that's a personal decision. You will or should get better personal service from an actual camera shop. B&H are hard to beat for on-line prices.

    I'm in Richmond (west end). I haven't ever met any other TPF members though. Everyone's scared to discover I'm not an ogre.
