Excuse the generic thread opener everyone. Anyway I am obviously new to the forums. I am a long time fan of photography and have finally decided to take the first step into make this one of the primary focuses of my life (aside from my wife and child of course). I started off with a Canon Rebel XT and upgraded to an XSi about 2 years ago. I have been shooting photos since about high school, took a few years off to concentrate on school and just a few years ago decided to get back into it. I am also a certified Radiographer which ironically involves taking radiographs (x-rays) at work. I am currently building an online portfolio of my work but I was also looking for a place to commune with people and share ideas with. Looking forward to hearing from everyone!
