I owe you all an apology. I have a tendancy to jump right in without introducing myself when so many others make introductions first. I have been a photography enthusiast for over 35 years and I have recently taken the plunge in to digital photography. I recently bought an Olympus Evolt E-300 with a 14-45mm lens, and I own various studio/outdoor lighting equipment. My primary photo shoots will be that of a varity of Survival. Tactical and Hunting Knives. Any help I can get on this subject, I can use! I use my real name as my user name, for now anyway, and I believe The Photo Forum is going to be an interesting place to discuss photography. My best wishes to you all!
