Hello, all! I just thought I'd post up a quick introduction thread. My name is Nick, and I'm relatively new to photography. I've used Point and Shoot cameras for years, but I decided to upgrade a couple of years ago. When my birthday rolled around a few years ago, I saved up all of the money I could, and purchased a Minolta HTSi Plus 35mm SLR to use for recreational purposes, mostly. Yesterday, a friend of mine told me about a really good deal on a DSLR at a local store, so today I took my paycheck and blew it on my first Digital SLR Camera, a Pentax K110D. I've had it for a few hours, and I must say, I'm impressed with the pictures I've taken so far. I'm eager to learn more, and my only concern at this point is that my income is going to limit my experience with this hobby. Lucky for me, I'm active in the automotive scene, so I have plenty of car shows to practice taking pictures at, and I also have the cutest puppy alive, so you'll all be seeing some pictures pretty soon!
