Hello all. My name is Tom and I used to be an ameteur photo hobbyist, and I mean really really ameteur. It started when I bought my first SLR camera about 15 years ago. It was a Canon Rebel 2000. I played with it for a few years and took some awesome photos. Then I had to actually make a living and havent used anything but your basic point and shoot since then. I just bought a new camera for my wife. It's a Canon Powershot SX120 and I must say that point and shoot cameras have come a long way. So long in fact, that I got out the old Canon Rebel 2000 and will start toying around again. So I got the bug again and I am hoping to learn a few things and take some really good pictures again, hopefully with some guidance from some of you. I look forward to reading and posting. Cheers!!
