Please tell us a little about your portrait photography knowledge and skill level.

I have been taking pictures since 2003. However, I just started taking photography seriously last year. I have grown in a very short time. Actually this is my second attempt at photography. Initially, I used the Internet to read and research. I learned that the only way I was going to get is was with a hands on approach. Currently, I am more technical than I am artistic. I do have an artistic side with the use of Adobe Photoshop CS. I understand composition but until you put a natural skill in practice it will never turn into talent. I have learned to keep an open mind and to never assume a person's ability regardless of their skill level; don't assume the pro knows and the amateur doesn't.


I am a beginner photograhper but I have been playing with digital cameras since 2003. I purchased my first DSLR and now I am ready for the 60D and a Mark D II in the future.
