Hi Dave! How far away are you from Chemung County in NY? I'm near the border of Athens/Sayre PA.

Well, I will take the time now as it seems I skipped this part. LOL!! Always in a big hurry.

I go by PeteD on here and my real name is in fact,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Pete. I am married to my wife Angela. I am currently unemployed. I was a heating & AC service tech. Looking to get out of that line and get something more steady and not as dependent on the seasons.

I have been interested in photography for several years (probably more like since 2000) but nothing serious. My first camera was a Canon Elan 7 which I constantly used to intimidate family members with it always pointed in their direction. Sold it after a year and have not picked up a camera again until last year. Just been playing with it. Then I stumbled across this site and decided to give the 365 a whirl. It is a big undertaking to say the least. I totally lack the experience and knowledge as many of the people on this site. But, that is the whole point of the 365 , right? To make you shoot and thereby learn?

There are some great people on here and some have been very helpful already. By all means, do not hesitate to tell me what I am doing wrong and things I can change. I want to learn to do it right.

Pete

I haven't seen this!

I have been interested in photography since I was a little kid. I remember following my Dad around him asking endless questions.

When Dad passed in '82 I got his Cannon gear and set to learn all I could.

I have been married for 23 years and we have 3 parasites, Jeni, 26, Shelli, 24 and Sam 20.

We moved down from MN to FL (I grew up in TX) in 2000 and love it down here! I now work at a Dry Cleaners and since I am by myself at the store I get lots of internet time!

Pete, you don't have anything to worry about - I only have just over a year and a half of photo experience, TOTAL, if you don't count the rebel I had and lived on "green box" with... This part of the forum is a nice, safe place to experiment, and grow and yes, we all learn every day, no matter our level of experience... And then we all turn into one big happy family and next year we'll all send Christmas cards to each other & now, on other, non-sappy comments ...

----
These are great everyone!!! So nice to hear everyone's back stories!!! I also love the "parasites" comment Dori!
