I started on my photo journey many years ago when my children were little. I really got into it when my husband surprised me with an enlarger for my birthday when the kids were about five and seven years old. I would get them to bed and then disappear into the basement (my darkroom) for hours. I never got tired of seeing the image come up on the paper. I switched to digital shortly after my grandchildren were born about ten years ago. I use a Nikon 5000 and any editing I do is in iPhoto. Some day I hope to learn how to use a good editing program. Right now I am still working for a veterinarian and really enjoy my job. I have loved being a member of pbase and feel like I have learned so much. There are so many talented people here who freely share their vision of the world and their expertise. It's a fun place to hang out! - 2018 - I finally have Lightroom and am now using a Canon D70. Still so much to learn!
