No, not really. The camera should arrive today, but the rest, not so much. :sexywink:

I am quite excited to begin a journey into a new hobby. I have always thought photography was interesting, and my grandfather used to be into it quite a bit (35mm and own darkroom). Since he has passed, the family has lost our official photographer. That is my first goal, to be the go to guy for family get-togethers and what-not.

I have already been making a mental list of learning topics (READ THE MANUAL), as well as bookmarking links that you all have been providing to others. Also, I am hoping to take a class at the local art institute by fall. If anyone has anything else to add, feel free.

Thread title got me.The D90 is a good camera and I'm sure you'll enjoy it. The manual is the best place to start, with your camera sitting next to you.There are a few topics in my sig using the D90, the might also help. Don't forget YouTube, which is incredible for help.

Welcome! I was kind of hoping your title was serious. My day is lacking drama.

I opened this thread just to find out if you were:
--About to get slammed around the TPF forum like a ball on a handball court, or
--A beginning photographer with a good sense of humor.

Congratulations on being the latter.
And welcome to TPF!

Dominantly - All bookmarked. Thanks!

bazooka, sm4him, PhotoTish, Sorry to disappoint in another noob slaughter. I've read enough to hopefully avoid some of the major faux pas.

PapaMatt - Not that I intend on submitting anything for review soon, I will remember to come w/ thick skin when that time arrives.

Camera arrived yesterday. While I was on-duty. :er: Had to help instruct a CE class today, all day. Finally got home, and unboxed 'er. I have taken one shot, and the manual looks HUGE. :D
