HI my names Ian and i have been reading these forums for a little while just trying to learn some things and look at other photographers work. I have recently got into photography but not very good at it yet. Im currently using my moms old slr camera from college. Its a 28 year old Minolta XG 9. I hope to get into photography enough so that i can buy a digital slr and not regret spending the money. So i just thought id introduce myself before i start posting.
