Well I did this a little backwards, posted some other items first and now I am saying hello. :)

Totally new to photography and just obtained my first DSLR, a Canon 60D along with a 18-135mm lens and a 70-300mm lens.

Having a lot of fun learning about the camera as well as photography in general. The more I play around, the more I feel the need to take a photography class, or two.

Anyhow, great to be here, seems like a great group, any other Arizona members here?

Welcome to the forum! A beginners photography class could be a good way to kick start your new hobby. If you get taught the basics well you will improve a lot quicker than most people :D

Welcome aboard! I'm southeast of you in El Paso. Don't know if you are in Tucson but you have a great local photo shop there if so.

Thank you my friend, I have watched so many of your videos that I think that I actually know you!

If you come to Arizona be sure to send me a PM...we will take the UTV's out up and get some amazing shots! What I mean by that is you can take some amazing shots, and then tell me how I can do the same, lol.
