Hey guys, I am Jonathan.
Just joined the forum as I am trying to get back into drawing again. Taught myself how to draw, started when I was young and really got into it during high school. I stopped "artsy" drawing during my time in college. I am a recent graduate as an industrial designer and looking to get back into drawing again as a hobby.

I am also into photography as well, mainly automotive.

Looking forward to what the forum brings!

HI!! Another person interested in Photography! YES! I am far from a professional..I just enjoy taking pictures and last year upgraded to a Canon EOS70D and am having a BALL with it! Love your pictures on your Flickr account and really look forward to your participation in the photography threads as well as the rest of the forums. Feel free to upload and share your work. We are a pretty easy going laid back bunch here who feeds and learns off each other.

Welcome!

Thank you for the compliments! I don't consider myself as a professional, but technically I am because I have been payed to do a few shoots. I mainly do it as a hobby, but I have been slacking a lot recently.

I do it as a hobby as well but I just love it. I will take pictures of anything. Lately it's been mostly soccer kid pics. I am trying to perfect the action shots. Getting close I think! It has been a lot of fun tinkering with the camera. I officially fell off the deep end though as I wound up buying off camera flash cords of various lengths and light boxes and diffusers. I started messing with them a bit but got distracted. Need to pull them back out and play a bit more.

Photography is an expensive habit.

Action shots are hard, but very rewarding when you are able to get good ones. I would like to start investing in some light equipment as well. But I hear you there, photography is expensive, doesn't help when you are also into cars.

I have had some really good luck purchasing through B&H Photo. Their stuff seems really reasonably priced and once you order you get their giant book of STUFF..so you can drool and dream. They have so many neat things.
