    Hey Guys and Gals! My name is Matt (Matty), I'm 21 and I live in Phoenix, AZ. I just bought my first D-SLR on friday and so far I'm liking it alot. Im currently taking a B&W film photography at my college and I really enjoyed it, which made me want to pursue photography even more. Next semester I'm going to take a digital photography class. I bought the A200 with the kit lens (18-70), I think its pretty good for a begginers camera and a fair price.

    Anyways, I snapped some pictures this weekend and did a little bit of editing so check them out and give me some feed back! Thanks.

    Thanks!

    I live over in Ahwatukee. Where do you live at in Phoenix? Right now I'm going to Chandler Gilbert CC but plan on transferring to ASU this coming fall. Im just getting my Associates at CGCC first and then getting a Bachelors at ASU after that.

    Thats exactly what I was going for in the car picture. I think next time I will select a longer shutter speed or drive faster! :)

    I'm in actual Phoenix (North Phoenix) - but I currently go to NAU.

    Yeah, I was going 55-60 or so on the 17, so the background got blurred quite nicely. I think only car/driving enthusiasts can appreciate the picture, lol.

    Also, I added this as a favorite on DeviantArt, because this guy's picture was so similar to mine.

    It's called The Coffee Buzz and we're located at 48th Street and Chandler Blvd., the NE corner and a few doors N of the Hooters Restaurant.

    Come by soon, we have a wonderful photo exhibit of one of the Ahwatukee's residents, a wonderful photographer. That is supposed to come down on the 17th of December.

    I'll be in during the mornings mostly, except for today when I have to go to work and then I'll be back by 1pm. So, from 9am to 1pm I won't be there... Just come by and introduce yourself, would love to chat a bit about photography, cameras and TPF. ;)
