Hello everyone at TPF, My name is Daniel and I'm from New York. This is the first photo forum I have joined, although I am a member of other forums with other topics of interest. I have ZERO photography experience and on a whim decided yesterday to go buy a camera because my point and shoot pissed me off. The P&S leaves a lot to be desired, and well, I decided to find out just how to achieve them. I look forward to building my knowledge of photography, I'm in the process of researching some books to purchase to get me started. If there are any that you guys recommend, please, let me know. Thank you, Daniel.
