Hi, everyone. Eons ago, I started with film photography, but it became an expensive hobby, so I stopped. I picked up digital photography in 2010 and eventually got the Nikon D5000 and the Nikon D5100. It took me several months to get comfortable with menu-driven shooting which slowed me down at important events. I would miss incredible moments trying to hunt for the right camera settings.
I am learning a lot from Joe McNally, Moose Peterson, Scott Kelby, Matt Kloskowski, Darrell Young, Steve Sint, and many more. I also read Digital SLR Photography and NPhoto magazines.
In 2013, my wife realized my growing photography needs and bought me the very-capable Nikon D7000 with the Nikkor 18-105mmm kit lens, and an SB-700 Speedlight. I am so thrilled at the camera controls that are now within easy reach.
As a New Year's resolution, I want to learn even more about photography, but I have to keep an eye out for Nikon Acquisition Syndrome (NAS) that I do not get caught in its grip! I did not know that NAS existed until I joined Nikonians!
Here is the Nikon D7000 page on my P4PH (Passion 4 Photography) website.
