Ok, been here about a week, so better step up and say hello... I gotta say, I feel like the new kid in school here, little uncomfortable .. I also guess I started out scratchin my nails on the chalkboard , rubbing some the wrong way, and for that , I apologize... Well won't make this a long story, but will say i have been involved in photography since 68"... I think I have been involved in every aspect of photography along the line... This includes the Biz part which I done for a number of years... I won't use the word professional , because I firmly don't believe one achieves that status, not with the way things change daily.. everyday as a photographer, whether you want to classify yourself as , Pro, Amateur/ novice/ or beginner , is a learning experience... especially in this world of digital, and computers.. I shoot and have shot, 35mm/ medium format Pentax 645, / and now mostly for convenience / and competition I use a Nikon 8700 8 MP.. Ok enough is enough, I hope to be of help here and contribute where I can ... I also hope all is well with anyone I offended... So lets get with here!! New England Moments VERMONT............. NEM works for Me , or even TOM.. Thanks for Having Me !
