Hello everybody.

After reading a lot of posts and getting to know everybody's knowledge for photography.
I was curious what you are or think you are, and why?

Went for Amateur going on pro as thats where I feel I slot in.

Think you should do a spelling correction in the "Don't no section" it should be "Don't Know"

Your right. I found the mistake after I posted it. I had the idea for the poll at about 2:30am. I was up late doing my taxes. :evil:
If I could edit the poll I would fix it, and add "Wannabe" as suggested my Patti :lol:

I voted for novice because I have only had my camera since Dec, BUT I think I have had an eye for framing and what would make a good shot for sometime.
Knowing what would make a good shot is one thing, but knowing how to get it is what I need to learn right now. I think that once I get to know my camera and whats works best when, then I will go amateur.

Nick

I put amateur because i wasnt quite positive what exactly the difference is between Novice or beginner.. they seem quite similar to me so i just chose amateur.. i dont know much about photography (compared to pros) and im learning everyday.
