    Been browsing the forums for the past week, learning a few things, and enjoying looking at all the great art. I recently purchased a Nikon D80 with a Sigma 18-200 lens, so I'm going through a steep learning curve. I previously had a Konica-Minolta Z20, that I really enjoyed taking photos with, but I just outgrew.

    I mainly shoot motocross, car shows, some scenery and sunsets, and a bunch of candid family and friend pics. I am going to try to do some portrait photography, but I don't think I can boss strangers around, plus I don't really have the artistic eye for objects that move, I would rather work with inanimate objects.

    My next great hurdle I need to overcome is purchasing and learning to use photoshop, so I can do some type of post processing.

    I hope to share a little and learn a lot.

    I just bought Photoshop Elements for $50 at Best Buy (on sale from $100) and it has a LOT to work with. not all you'd get with the pro version but it's worked great for me so far! gonna take awhile to learn everything though, i suggest a photoshop book other than the manual =)
