    Hey how's it going, I'm new to the forum, I've been in the SLR world for almost 2 years and taking pictures casually for quite a while, just now starting to get a little more serious about it and enjoy the camera more! :)

    I'm from Southeast Missouri and have a small gear collection

    Body:

    Nikon D40x, Nikon D80

    Lens:
    Nikon 18-135 Kit lens
    Nikon 50 mm f/1.8

    Flash:
    Vivtar HV-285

    So far photography is just a hobby and I take some pictures for friends and family members and do some freelance work for the local paper's sports or when they need some extra help

    I got to borrow their 70-200 mm f/2.8 VR and fell in love with that lens so I'm looking for the Nikon (non push-pull) 80-200mm lens as my next lens and maybe an 85mm f/1.8 and a 35mm f/1.8 to expand my collection

    I've been browsing the site for a while though and I know I have lots to learn! Been on forums for a while too so I figure this site could be like a few of the others I'm on sooooooooo I look forward to learning more!

    Here's my newly started blog if anyone cares lol

    C Berens Photography

    And I guess I'l post some pics for critique since I might as well, they're kinda all over the place since this isn't themed, just some pics I took that I like...

    Yes/No
    The best place to start is here in the beginner forum. The way to find what you want here though is basically to search around the beginner forum or just go through a couple pages and see if anything there is useful. GL and have a great time here! No question is a dumb question.
