I am a total noobie here to TPF and also forums and blogs in general. I am a commercial graphic designer for an advertising / sign making firm in Central Coast California. I have always had a love for photography but never took any type of formal training. I want to attend classes at my college however I am just to damn busy. I hope to use this forum as a tool to fill in the gaps of knowledge as an armature photographer and become Semi Pro! I have a lot to learn so I hope you all enjoy dishing it out!!! I look forward to being a member here at ThePhotoForum! :thumbup: Cristobal AKA "The ALIAS Pro" Canon Glass Junkie, Adobe Addict! How I roll...
