Hi! My name is Dyi. I am an amateur photographer. I've been shooting for a little while now...not long. I just recently started thinking about my shots before and after. So I guess the next step is to learn a lot more and get critiqued in the process. I'm MOST interested lighting and setting up a small in home studio (frugally of course) to study lighting and do creative portraits. I have a 40D and 28mm-135 kit lens...thinking about what my next purchase should be!! Whew! Hi nice to meet everyone and thank you for having me. I'm from the midwest temporarily residing in the DC area.
