    What camera do you have? Do you like it?: Nikon d60 Love it, although it's my first and only DSLR I've own. I think it's a great starter cam.

    What editing software do you use? CS4. I bought it because I had a great teacher discount. I have NO idea how to use it besides fooling around with it. I'm taking a class for it in the Fall and I'm so excited!

    How long have you been interested in Photography? I've ALWAYS loved looking & been interested in other's pics, but never thought of doing them myself. The basic birth of my son and you inspiring ladies has convinced me to try for myself!

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I don't have a style, I'm still figuring out my camera, CS4, etc. I really enjoy photojournalistic style (would that be how you phrase it?). I'm not much of a fan of posed pics.

    What/who inspires you? Everyone on this board!

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share: I'll let you know when I figure out one!

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? Working on it.

    Anything else you'd like to say? I love how casual and supportive this board has seemed to be. Other forums on Photography scare the crap out of me!

    What/who inspires you? My children, my parents, and my husband. (Is that too cliche?)

    Any favourite tip/trick you'd like to share: Hmm... bribery can go a long way with children? Haha! (Even that doesn't always work, though)
