Hi everyone, I don't know why I've never thought to join a photography forum before, but here I am. I'm an enthusiastic amateur. I mostly take landscapes, and pictures of family and friends' kids, when I can get them not to grin inanely at the camera! As a teacher, I'm also often called on to take pictures of school events. I've had some successes and many more failures. I use a Panasonic Lumix just now, and I really love my camera. I'm totally converted to digital, having resisted for some time. I enjoy using my limited skills in Photoshop Elements, and one of the reasons I'm here is to pick up new skills on the editing front. Look forward to chatting to everyone!
