Can I join?

Hello Ladies,
My name is Stephanie; I am a long time lurker and admirer of all of your work. I have been talking behind the scenes with Amy and she has been greatly helping me to learn how to use manual mode. I have finally worked up enough courage to come join you ladies here. I have always been a longtime lover and enthusiast for photography. I just got my first semi-real camera, it isn’t a DSLR but it is supposed to be the closest thing to it. I decided to go this route while I learn and once I grow out of this camera I would love to invest in a Canon DSLR, I’m a huge Canon fan. Right now I own a Canon Powershot SX30 IS, the zoom on it is incredible and I so far love everything it can do. I am still getting the hang of manual mode but I can tell a little that I am getting better at it, at least from my day 1 picture which was awful. I got a Flickr account so I can upload and share my pictures. I also purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 and am still trying to figure out the program and everything it is capable of doing. I am always reading about photography and trying out different things to try to capture some amazing pictures. I have 3 children so those are my primary subjects that I love to take pictures of. I am also doing project 365 so that way I learn how to use my camera and I get some great pictures of my babies. I hope to be able to grow and learn more from this board and you ladies.

Howdy and welcome to the group, Stephanie!

Looks like you have some rather adorable subjects (judging from your sig), so I can't wait to see more from you. Smile

Best,
GiGi
