Noob here. I'm from Salt Lake City, Utah. Found this site a couple of weeks ago and I've been enjoying everyone's photos. I've already posted once in an automotive thread so far. Been thinking about a DSLR for quite awhile now, started on a backpacking trip a couple of summers ago when I was taking lots of pictures and they weren't turning out the way I wanted them to. But, as you all know, they can be a bit expensive and I've been a dirt poor college student for too long (now post-student). Anyway, I graduated this August and I think I'm going to treat myself to a graduation/Christmas present and finally pick up a DSLR. So, I'll be lurking and occasionally posting. Nice to meet the TPF crew.
