    >> Fresh Meat <<

    Hello everyone!!

    I'm new here, as well as to the world of photography. I mean, I've been taking pictures forever, but there's definitely a different feel when you hold your first DSLR in your hands, am I right? I feel almost... inadequate to even touch it... (although, I feel a Harry Potter-like rush every time I hold it... that's... normal, RIGHT??)

    Ok, a little about me: I'm 25 years old (if only for the next 4 days... *sigh*) and I've been living in Miami for the past 12 years (I'm originally from Cuba). I love this city and I'm excited to re-discover it from a new point of view: my viewfinder! I recently got a Canon Rebel XS as an early birthday present from my boyfriend, who saw me miss most of the real-action birthday party for my best friend's son because I was so into playing with their Nikon. I've always liked to play photographer, but my introvert nature did not allow me to get out of my shell much... however, I'm learning to spread my wings. I have a couple of projects at hand for the next few months, including a possible internship with a professional photographer. I'm excited!!

    Well, do you have any n00bie rituals? I'm ready for whatever you got!!

    Welcome to the forum, and happy birthday!

    No rituals - jump right in!

    Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion.”

    Thanks! I'm already having a blast looking at everybody's photography. It's a little intimidating, I'll admit, but at least I'm getting lots of ideas and discovering tips. =)

    Welcome Loony from the UK, no initiation rituals, though that does raise possibilities - I'll never forget as an engineering apprentice being sent to to stores for a left handed spanner.

    Ah, the UK, my dream travel destination. I'll make it there soon, and that will be the day I will fill up my 32gb memory card every day... :P

    I think it's a good idea to have a ritual for the new members... maybe a photo assignment to start with!! Something challenging and fun -what you went through was just mean. lol

    Thanks everybody for the welcome, having a good time so far!! =)
