Thanks guys, for the encouraging words
JFord, I am located in Harrisburg, PA. I thought I updated that in my profile, maybe I haven't figured it out yet. I graduate from cosmetology school in August and look forward to working professionally in the coming months.
And Carpe Imago, I appreciate the welcome. I had the opportunity to work with Rolando in March and really enjoyed the people i met at the workshop. I like looking at everyone's work here, and I while I may be ignorant in the technical aspect of things, I can at least enjoy a good photo and nice models.
