Hello people, I am a newbie not just to the forum but also to photography. This is something that I have liked for as long as I can remember, but only now have I found the time (and the will) to learn it. Up until this year, all of my photos were taken in auto mode (*massive boos*), but in January I started taking basic photography courses at PrairieView School here in Winnipeg. The auto mode is a thing of the past for me already. I don't really have truckloads of equipment like most people here: just my Nikon D70s, the Nikkor 18-200 VR zoom, and a 15-year old Nikkor 35-70 lens. I'm also waiting for a Manfrotto 728B tripod to arrive in the mail soon. Two percent of my pics are here, while the rest is floating somewhere in the cybergarbage. I really look forward to comments from the knowledgeable types on how to improve my style. If anybody wants to play around with any of my pics, just send me a PM and I will send it to them gladly. Thanks for listening.
