Hello. I'm pretty new to DSLR photography. I understand the basic physics of photography reasonably well, so I am now starting to focus on the art.
I'm getting to the point where I think about multiple aspects of the image I want to create BEFORE I set the camera and snap the picture. Sometimes it even works.
So far I've been lurking this community for inspiration and to try to understand what the critics are talking about when they pick or pan Voting Pool submissions.
I figure it will be a long time yet before I'm ready to enter a picture, but for now I am really grateful for the education provided here. There are some great photogs posting!
