Welcome to my humble offerings; I am very much a novice when it comes to photography, but in the short time I have been a member of this site I have learnt a great deal from other members who have been so generous with their experiences and expertise, for which I offer my undiluted thanks.
I have much to learn and would appreciate the input of members on this site.
Thought I would update this since I have been a member of this site for almost a year. When I first joined the site I was using a bridge camera, then my beloved Nikon D3200 and could barely turn it on. I have now added a Nikon D800, which I am still getting to grips with, but I really do like it so far. That's not to say my D3200 is now out of favour; it definitely has its place and will still make appearances on this site.
Thanks to the members on this site I feel as though my photography has improved a great deal. However, the one thing I have really learnt is that photography is a subject that you can never stop learning about and you shouldn't be in too much of a hurry regardless of enthusiasm.
Photography not only records events, but it is definitely an art form in its own right judging from the images I have had the pleasure of viewing on this site.
