First introduction about photography

I am a very enthusiastic photographer. I started very young when I was a kid, my father told me what an aperture was, what a shutter speed was, how to measure light and calculate the different parameters including the DOF (depth of focus).... I was 10 years old. After that, I used a lot of small and reflex cameras, just taking a lot of pictures, mainly naive travel pictures. A few years ago, I decided to become more serious about photography, and I started to invest time in lurking on several internet forums to collect information. I actually rediscovered photography about 6 years ago with a simple Nikon SLR camera and since then, I have invested quite a lot of time and money in that hobby. The hobby recently became a professional activity and I now get assignments to take pictures... I consider myself as being a beginner semipro photographer. There is so much to learn and to do. That's one of the reasons why I create a simple website to share my experiences with any people interested in photography. I hope to help them with the information I share, to speed up the learning process and to have fun...

My site can be found here:

The best way to learn on the internet is to participate to forums. The forums I would recommend (I am a Nikon shooter so they are Nikon oriented)
