I am a new student to photography. I have loved this website since I first learned about it a few years ago in a visual design class when our Professor told us to take a look at the beautiful work here. I know good critiques are important in the learning process so I will post photos occasionally for any help and advice you may have. Please note...at this time I'm still getting used to 'iso', 'exposure', 'aperture', etc., etc. and I feel VERY uncomfortable yet with what I am doing!!! I recently purchased a Nikon SLR D3100 and have been lost ever since!! I am a stubborn and determined person, though...a benefit for me in tough situations such as this!
