I posted already in the wildlife forum before noticing this forum for introductions. At any rate my name is Mike and I am from Binghamton in Upstate NY. I picked up a camera about three years ago and havent really put it down since. I am completely self taught with the help of forums like this and books I have found here and there. I have learned a lot in the past year and love the fact that no matter how much I learn there is still soooo much more to learn.
