Both my wife and I are originally from Sioux (Pronounced 'Sue') Falls, South Dakota, USA. After a 3 year stint in SoCal, we have moved to West Lafayette, IN. My wife is pursuing her Ph.D. at Purdue Univ.
The first digital camera we got was a Kodak DX7590 (pseudo slr) which taught me how to use many of the manual settings that SLRs have. After several years with that camera we have finally upgraded to a full DSLR. We got a D80 and have just loved it. Also, my wife has recently been trying her hand at mastering an old 35 mm Olympus, and has been quite successful. Obviously the digital nikon works lightening fast compared to a fully manual camera with little need for bateries(the olympus), so she fell in love with it right away. We also just got our own dog - a tiny Sheltie named Molly.
I use Photoshop CS3, and sometimes for HDR I use qtpfsgui - it has some fun options that I can't find in CS3.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like what you see.
