Hi, I am new to the forum scene. However, after viewing several conversations, I am hopeful that I may learn from others experiences and knowledge with photography. I have always enjoyed taking photos. It is not my plan to become a professional, but I would love to be a more knowledgeable hobby photographer. I have actually taken three of my grandchildren's senior pictures. I also have lots, and I mean lots, of photos of them playing sports. In addition to photos of my grandchildren, I always take photos of landscapes and activities while we are on vacation or weekend get-aways. Since I am new, I could use some pointers on how to exactly use this site--i.e. difference between threads and conversations and how to post each. Thanks to all in advance for your ideas, suggestions, and feedback. I look forward to learning about photography.
