    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!

  4. Excellent, very nice. I'm not a big fan of the last one, but it might work better as a B&W.

    I like No 1, 6, and 7

    For some reason, the "California" one stands out to me...I guess the background is the perfect embodiment of the intrinsic ideals of what California is.
