    Hi all! A friend of mine sent me a link here, so I joined and look forward to posting with you all. I am relatively new to photography -- I've had a Nikon D70s for about a year, but it took me a few months to shoot in all manual... I'm mainly photographing my two daughters, but occasionally will photograph someone for a special occasion. I am not looking to go pro now... I may change my mind someday if I actually get good enough to do so. I can't stand it when someone gets an SLR and immediately decides they're going to become a 'professional.' Anyway...

    Here are a few photos I've taken recently that I'm proud of. I'm mostly using natural light, and my house is situated with mostly north/south facing windows, but I do have a few good lighting spots and I use them often.

    Thanks for looking!

    You appear to have a highly developed visual sense. Either that, or you have been extremely lucky in pulling off the above photographs. I strongly suspect it is the former.

    Nice work. I can only hope to compete when I get my hands on the newly announced dSLR I just ordered ....... Where abouts in CA is that anyway (the nicely angled palms)?

    Chas -- I'm in a city called Redlands -- about an hour east of LA and an hour west of Palm Springs :) I took that just a couple of miles from my house.

    Thanks for your comments -- it always helps to have someone else give you a 'pat on the back' of sorts. Sometimes I spend too many hours on Flickr and get depressed because then I feel like my photography is crap. HAHA
