My name is Ryan and I am in the Air Force stationed at Elmendorf AFB, Anchorage, Alaska. I will be honest here: I bought my wife a Canon XSI for our anniversary because she said she wanted one. Me being me thought that photography is a "girl" thing and "men" just don't do it. Well one day I was reading the instruction book and playing with the camera and well....the camera is now mine. Needless to say I am new to photography and I am glad I found this site because I am excited to learn different things about this art! Anyhow, just wanted to share that story with you all and say hey!
