Hello My name is Jason. I am a college student graduating in May (Finally).

I have always had interest in photography and never really had the money to get into. My life kinda revolves around my car, the race team and racing the car. so as you can tell most of my money is put towards the team/car. The whole time in college i always said i wanted to take the Black/White Photography class, but always money kept me away. well my current semester i had to take an art class, picked on and dropped the first day and decided its time to take photography. so i signed up and here i am now, fully addicted and hook 100%

I got my first DSLR (Nikon D50) for a pretty good deal used, just no lenses. So while being a college student tight on money and the start of the race season around the corner, i made my way down to the local camera store and found they had a Sigma 18-50mm 1:3.5-5.6 in the case that was an open box special, picked it up for under $100. I know its not the best but i figured it will hold me over for a while, give me time to collect some money and learn the camera a little better and upgrade over the summer.

I guess thats all for now.

Jason

AX is probably even more addictive than photography. I'm a recovering SM2 addict...

Welcome aboard! I started digital with a D50, it's a great camera to get up to speed on all the controls and fine-tuning. Best advice is shoot often & much!

Happy shooting!

Thank you.

I am planning on giving the car a little bit of a face lift this summer as well as getting it ready for the 2010 race season. but that could be a problem with my current addition to photography. trying to split my money between the two is going to be difficult.
