    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.

    Welcome to the forum! :)

    post your images, trash other people's images (politely) .. and enjoy our off-topic conversations ;)

    Well, on first glimpse I misread this :p ... guess I am just a lil perv ;)

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I discovered this forum just an hour ago, but I already know that I am one of the worst photographers among its 15,000 member base. In other words, I can't trash anybody's images, not even politely.

    I'm here to learn, basically, from 14,999 other people. :study:

    Don't worry, 'cause I'm not worried. I'm excited, actually: lots to gain and nothing to lose!
