Hello everyone. I'm very young but I've already made up my mind in what I want to spend the better part of my life doing. I took a basic photography class about six months ago which taught me how to develop my own black and white pictures. I fell in love with photography as soon as I was able to look at my contact sheet and then later being able to make full 8x10 exposures. About a month ago I was able to collect some money and bought a D50 with a kit lens.
So anyway, After browsing this forum for quite some time, I've decided to register and introduce myself. I guess I'm pretty lucky since there seems to be a lot of experienced photographers on this board with a lot of different opinions on things.
Now what I would like to hear is how everyone got into photography and what was it like? How long was it before you decided you wanted to make it into a career and/or what keeps you motivated? Also, if its at all possible, I'd like to view pictures of your best work that you have handy.
Look forward to hearing your stories
