Hi! I'm Traci from Long Beach, Ca. A few of my friends live on this forum and they twisted my arm long enough to make me join! (J/K!) Actually, I have been interested in joining for a while because I really need to learn more about my Canon 10D and the finer points of photography. I've been told that I have the "natural eye" for it, but I still get confused on some of the basics. :???: I am currently taking a class for graphic arts, you know photoshop, painter, Illustrator and Indesign. My goal is to continue with these classes and I believe they will also help me be a better photographer. If anything, I'll be able to manipulate my digital images properly. :er: I''m off and running into this world of the "Photo Forum" for my education on photography and I'm sure for a few laughs along the way! So, don't be too cruel on the "newbie"!
