I am an “amateur enthusiast” in digital photography. I was attracted to Photo.Net by the informative tutorials and by the high quality of the images that I saw posted here. Some other photo sites that I have been involved with are either too big and impersonal, or too simplistic and “nicey”. I am looking for an intimate community of “serious” photographers who can offer me useful suggestions on how to improve my work, and I think that Photo.Net may be exactly that. I’m looking forward to getting to know you folks. This is a shot of me being a serious photograph.
