Like yourself, I am pretty new to photography (around 4 years of *putzing*). I like landscapes - large & small; or anything that has a great blend of shadow & light. We just completed my first ever darkroom a few months ago & I am happy as a clam trying new things and seeing what develops!
I've found that everyone here is willing to help when you are stumped & for the most part, we all have a fairly jovial attitude!
Again, Welcome!
