Hello all, my name is Sasha I am originally from the Los Angeles area but currently live in Idaho. I was never really into photography and then it happened. You see I am very “addicted” to fly fishing especially fishing in places that are off the beaten path. I used to take along my P&S camera but I was never really happy with the pictures. Yes the pictures came out but they didn’t capture the moment quite right.

Then about three years ago I was given a D3000 as a gift. I basically learned how to use it by trial and error plus some reading. I ended up getting different lenses and mostly use the 60mm micro 2.8 on it now. It is kind of a pain using that lens as I have to manually focus it due to the lack of a motor on the D3000 body. I also use the 18-55 VR and 55-200 on the camera.

Yes I know the 3000 is low end but I had wanted to get more proficient before moving on. I am now at the point where I am looking at new cameras; I am thinking D7100 but am open to suggestions. I am mostly here so that I can learn even more about my newfound hobby. It is funny; at first I was glad to have it so I could photograph my fishing trips. Now I would say that half the reason I go fishing these days, is so that I can take pictures and further develop my skills.


Here are a several pictures that I have taken of some of my trips:

Thanks all, I hope to learn a lot and contribute what I can. However, with some of the photos I have seen here, I am almost embarrassed to post my stuff.
