About Benjamin

I am relatively new to digital photography and am experimenting with an entry level Nikon Coolpix. I am very much enjoying the freedom from film and its associated expenses. However, I miss the kind of versatility I used to get with my Canon 35mm slr and expect to move up to a digital SLR as soon as I can afford one. Like other arts, photography requires both technical skill and artistic perception. I consider myself a neophyte in both areas.

Update: I now have a Sony Alpha 200
