How's it going everybody my name is Ben. I live in Northern Alberta Canada, and I am brand new to the world of photography. I recently just got married to my beautiful wife, and I am also a musician. I stumbled across photography over the past little while as a way to " have some fun " but then realized that I enjoyed it a lot more than that. The more i took pictures of random family members and the odd thing here and there the more I wanted to get better and better at it. I currently am using a fuji finepix camera which is a normal digital camera " point and shoot" if you will. I am slowly learning where I want to go with this and have been saving up for the Canon rebel which I think will serve me just fine. This place seems great! Can't wait to learn from you people

Hiya! I'm relatively new here as well, but seems like lots of good stuff on this board.

Hi Ben, I am new to this site, and new to photography as well. Your story sounds very similar to mine! I just bought the Canon Rebel XSI (was going to get the XTI), since that was recommended by a few professionals in my area, to get me started! Can't wait to compare notes!!
