Hey guys, I am a novice photographer on the bottom end of the word. I live in Chicago, but I frequently end up in more picturesque locations such as... anywhere but Chicago. Kevin J is actually not my name, but I couldn't think of anything snappy(my name doesn't qualify). I have only dabbled in photography so far, but I'd like to dive a bit deeper into it. I am friends with a number of whizzes on the subject, but here seems a good place to be. I have a Kodak C340 Zoom, which is kind of a pain to work with as far as uploading, and i'm certain there's a beginner digital camera with better resolution, effects, and stuff. Anyone have suggestions? I've heard Canon is good, but no specific model. Okay I just realized how long this is and doesn't need to be. So I'll be back, I'll be here, and I'll be screwing around with photos. Bye!
