Hello all, I just wanted to drop in the intro threads as it is customary to do so when you join a new forum. I am in the Tampa Bay are and a little history of why I got interested in photography; I always like taking photos but never had money to buy a fancy camera. When I went on vaca to NYC (the most photographed place in the world) I bought a Nikon Coolpics L820. Better than a small point and shoot but not as good as a DSLR. Walking the city I wanted to take the best pictures I could. I posted a few to the socials and one of my friends who is in the advertising industries and worked for my best friend's ad agency whom we were visiting him and his office at the Rock, said I should moonlight as a photographer. I respected his opinion because I have seen the work he does and it made me feel good. So I decided to embrace my photo bug and always look for a shot no matter where I am. I take most of my photos with my iPhone 7 plus. I haven't mastered the aperture stuff. Thanks for listening to my rant and happy shooting.
