I live in picturesque Boone, North Carolina which is located in the northwest mountains of the state. I have been listening to the podcast for several months now. I started at the beginning so when I finally caught up to the more recent ones that talked about the forum I decided to join. I am especially excited to join in on the assignments as I learn so much from just going out and shooting. I find being given different subjects to study challenges my creativity as well spurs my interest to learn new techniques.

My father was a professional photographer who passed away last year and I regret not learning more from him nonetheless I have been drawn even more to this art since his passing. I have had many cameras over the years starting with toy camera and junky throw-away ones which would come in the mail with free samples of film (which my dad would give to me). My eighth grade science project was pin-hole camera and how it worked. I had an Olympus 35mm point and shoot and several digital point and shoot cameras but always wanted a real SLR with lenses I could adjust to make different effects.

For about six months now, I have been concentrating heavily on learning all things photography since getting what I call my first real camera, a Canon Rebel XTi. Thanks to Marko for all the interesting tips and subjects he has covered thus far in the show and looking forward to learning much, much more.
