Hello to all! As my screen name says, I am a mom of 2 competitive swimmers. After monkeying around with point and shoot cameras, I received a Rebel XTi last year, and am learning how to use it. I bought a Tamrom 70-300 lens to zoom more, but still don't get results that I like all the time. I'm looking forward to learning more here, as well as in a Sports Photography class I am taking later this month. Thanks to Sodak for inviting me here!
