In a brief, I've been teaching myself photography thru a trial & error method since mid 2002. I had always had a interest in it but, one day went off the deep end and just took an aggressive approach of "just do it". So I did a lot of ebaying and bought all sorts of UN-neccesary items. I learned that better equipment doesn't make you a better photographer (asthetically speaking). I also learned that teaching yourself is a love/hate approach of learning and can get you nowhere without the proper information, that can sometimes be very .....
There is, however, so much useful information & ideas here that I can truly grow from. I've never seen so many helpful people unloading all this helpful knowledge anywhere else. I'm grateful to be here.
I'd like to thank David Goldfarb for pointing me in this direction a little while back. Thanks again David.
