Greetings, I just joined the forum. I'm not a professional photographer, I only enjoy taking a few pictures here and there. I'm from Wisconsin. I'm a programmer by trade. I use my programming skills to make my photo/metadata management easier. I'd go out on a limb, and say that *basic* programming skills could be of great benefit to almost any photographer. I hope to learn a lot from all of you. Thank you, Paul S.
