    so hi. i'm valerie. i'm 19.

    been interested in photography for a while but i only had an olympus 1.5 megapixel peice of crap to work with for a long time. i finally got a minolta x-300 for the holidays and i'm soo excited!

    the only time ive taken photos with manual control was in a studio setting. whenever i took outdoors, it was with my auto digital. now that i have a manual i'm getting confused so i'll probably frequent here a lot. just wanted to say hi.

    wondering how old everyone else is?

    Hi Valerie and welcome, wish I was 19 again, youth is so wasted on the young.
    For reference, I'm over three times your age physically and mentally -3.
    Please don't slate your old Olympus, it got you interested in photography didn't it?
    Hope you have fun and learn lots here.
    Happy New Year!

    Welcome Home, Valerie
    i went off to bed before i answered your question, sorry.

    i have the mental capacity of a hyperactive 5 year old (holding up four fingers* "I'm This Many!!")


    however, i am truly 15 and a half

    I'm 20 and I'm also in the United States Army. I've been into photography for a little while now and own 3 cameras. I have a Nikon N55, Nikon FM10, and a Hasselblad 500C body that I just bought.

    Interesting. My 2mp point and shoot olympus digital cam is what got me interested... and my first manual camera was a minolta X7A which is the X 370

    Welcome!

    I'm not that much older weighing in 25.
