Just stumbled upon this forum while searching for info on my new D70. Each of my parents were both heavily into photography when I was young, and had each made it as far as being published in a few magazines. They started me early, and I actually entered, and won some local contests when I was around 5 years old. I kept with it, plus art in other medias, for a while when tragedy struck our family, and priorities changed. I have now started getting the itch again, got me a decent camera, and I am ready to learn!!!!
