Hi everyone!

Total newbie here, so I'll be asking lots of questions.

I have long been interested in photography, but when I was younger I didn't have the patience or technical inclination to learn the technique and science behind it. Since relocating across the Atlantic from the U.S. to Scotland, I have been continually frustrated by my inability to capture the beauty surrounding me here with my camera. So, I'm determined to finally learn the ropes of photography so I can move beyond the world of point-and-shoot.

I figure I can blame at least a bit of my frustration on my cute, pocket-sized Canon SD300 PowerShot, so I'm in the process of shopping for a digital SLR (currently leaning toward a Pentax 100D Super) that will do everything I need but won't break the bank.

I'm really looking forward to learning as much as I can from you all!

welcome to the forum :)

nice city you live in :)) Already adopted the accent? ;)
Hi Kelly, glad to have you aboard.
Alex - Not yet, but I've only been here for a couple of months. And yes, we absolutely love it here so far. :)

Thanks for the welcome, everyone!
