I am a new photographer, only been using an SLR for a little less than 6 months.
I have also just signed up for the course so am really looking forward to getting into it and also getting to know you all here on the forums.
A little more about me, I am a 23 year old guy from Sydney, Australia and have always had a desire to get into it. Much to my delight, Canon Australia contacted me out of the blue (and to cut a long story short) they lent me a Digital SLR for 3 months so I was able to try my hand at photography and I have not look back since.
Um, I will happily answer any questions if you have any more .
