I'm a newbie to The Photo Forum, but not to photography. Been shooting more seriously in the past 3 years when I acquired my Cannon Rebel XT. Prior to that I owned a Canon Powershot A95, a Kodak APS, and some other various film style cameras and have taken pictures since I was young. Currently I am in process of investing in a new Nikon d300s, it should be ready to go in a couple more days. I've got a photography trip to Colorado coming up, there will be a bunch of wonderful photographers to meet and learn from while I'm there. I'm always open to new ideas, feedback and comments about my photographs and making them better.
