Guess I should introduce myself too- added pics

Hi all. My name is Danielle and I have been interested in photography since middle school. I have never had any formal training, so whenever I get a really good shot it's pure luck. Lol. I have the gimp and for photo editing, although I don't know much about them either.

That is all about to change over the next year though. I'm so excited that I have finally signed up for a photography course at a local college. Photography is one of their continuing education subjects. To get a photography certificate you are basically doing everything you would to major in it, minus all the math, science, lit, history, etc. ( although since I already have a BA in PR, I should look into seeing what would be needed to have a double anyway. The first course starts mid Sept. I can only take one a semester, so it will take a while to get close to as good as all of you. Smile

BTW I have an Olympus E-620. It's currently used more like a P&S unless I have it in one of the built-in settings. When I get to my other comp I'll post a few pics.

And this was one of the first pics I took with my camera when I got it Christmas 2009

I think there are quiet a few of us that aren't educated in photography, good to hear you have the chance to take a course. Welcome to the boards, can't wait to see your work.

Hi and welcome to the board! Cute pics, can't wait to see more! I am mostly a nature photographer (hobbyist) but since I got my SLR in 2009 I've been learning how to take better portraits too, and have had LOTS of fun here at this board. Great bunch of gals here and TONS of great info! Smile
