I'm Cherie. The only thing I want to do is photograph. I decided to try out TPF because I don't really know anyone else in the field personally. I figured this might be a good place to ask questions and learn a thing or two. I'm a retail studio manager, which allows me to be a full-time photographer with a steady paycheck. I've been doing that for almost 5 years now. However, I grow tired of the same old thing at my "day job". I'm really anxious to grow my skill and become a better photographer outside of the "retail environment" studio atmosphere. I use Nikon, mostly because that is what I learned on and I am familiar with it. I love my camera. Hoping I can get what I've been looking for out of this. HI!
