    I thought I would say hello. I am from just outside of Nashville, TN.

    I have been shooting since I was 13. I've been a lawyer for the last 20 years. 2 1/2 years ago, I was rushed to the hospital, with what we thought was at first, a heart attack. Fortunately, my BP had just gone off the charts. After that, I got obsessively back into photography, shooting almost anything I could.

    For the last two years, I have toyed with the idea of going into photography full time and chucking the law business.

    So I am on here, thinking about it, looking for answers.

    I'm looking forward to meeting a lot of good photographers here!

    Hi Judson and welcome to the forum from S.E. Indiana. I know of what you speak, had a similar wake up call about 16 years ago. But mine was not as gentle. Enjoy the forum, and don't be a stranger.

    Hey John,

    Wake up calls are generally not fun, but can be tremendous turning points, if we accept the wisdom that comes from something like that.

    I notice you are a fellow nikon shooter!
