    Hi,

    I've been browsing the past few days...just found this site.
    Took many photo classes with my BAº with a Canon Elan IIE, ~10 years ago. Have not done much film work since due to the cost of film, processing, and the time between taking/seeing the results.

    Moved to digital with a nikon P&S. Grew frustrated with the lack of control I had, but have been very tight on funds. I'm in my last year of a master's in Physical Therapy...so living on loans is prohibitive to re-starting a hobby.

    First child was born in May...you'll see many pics of her here as I upload them to look for CC and ideas. I enjoy the expression of photography, I believe I have a decent eye and appreciation for what makes a quality photograph quality, but I definitely have room to grow and am eager to devour the knowledge on the boards.

    With the birth of my daughter, my wife and I bought a Canon SD 1000 P&S to replace the 2mp/6 y/o Nikon, and have been pleased with it, although I still find myself yearning for the control in digital that the elan IIe gave me with film.

    I'm saving, which will rapidly advance in May when I graduate, for a Nikon DSLR. Leaning to the D90 with some of the shared technologies it has with the higher Nikon models...although I'm not "die-hard, must have D90", looking forward to reading the posts comparing the thoughts of the d90 to the d40 and 60. Hoping that when I'm ready to upgrade in a year, the price will not be as premium since it just came out.

    So that's about it for me...looking forward to being a part of the community, to learning, as well as contributing in whatever ways I can.
