    i've already made a few posts.

    My name is Melisa, from Tampa, Florida, and I'm a photographer/camera-aholic.


    I shoot everything from Polaroids to toy cameras, to hasselblad to 35mm slr's to rangefinders. You name it, I'm probably interested in it. :smile: :tongue:

    I've been shooting for a few years now and loving every minute of it. I've taken a couple photography college classes in the last year, but this semester the attendance is low, so they dropped the ones I wanted to take.

    I've enjoyed reading up on tips here and I feel like this is going to fill the educational void i feel like I am going through right now. The darkroom forums are helping me, as I feel like i'm out of practice and loosing my 'touch'.

    anyway, hello!!! :smile:

    Greetings from Canada two (too?)
    I know how you feel about the educational void. Took a couple last year and am currently in one now (not very happy with the instructor, but what are ya gonna do). Two of the classes I wanted to take have been dropped completely and one was folded into another to make up attendance. This site and everyone here has definately helped.
    Nice avatar! Self portrait? (just kidding) :wink:
