Hi everyone, I just purchased a Nikon D5000 as my first DSLR.
I've been using digital P&S for 11 years and thought it was time to upgrade to DSLR.
I just found this site from another forum and haven't had a chance to explore it yet but will be doing that now...

I live in the Chattanooga TN area, retired and do a lot of bass fishing. I am also a digital artist and use photos both as underpaintings and references for my artwork.

So far I am enjoying this camera and learning something new every day.

Hiya Claudia P, and welcome to the forum! Like others said, you will likely find this to be a very valuable resource in so many ways. Enjoy your DLSR experience and we're all looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

PS; as I'm sure you know, in your city you have one of the best aquariums around. I loved my visit there.

Hmmm...this is a very old thread. Don't think Claudia hung around.
