Hello everyone! I'm really excited to be here! It seems like you have a nice community here. 

I'm a "recovering" wedding photographer who hit a breaking point a few years back and got sick of shooting for other people. I've been on kind of a hiatus the last couple years focusing on my web design career but am now getting back into shooting ONLY for myself. I've been dabbling with timelapse photography and nightscapes. In desperate need of some new equipment. 

Looking forward to participating here regularly and learning as much as I can from all of you :) 

Melissa

Nice to meet you, Matt! And believe it or not it's possible to be both a Trekkie and a Star Wars fan... although I see how one would get the impression that I'm hardcore one way vs the other lol

Yeah! I'm so spoiled living here. If you want to come visit, let me know :) 

The weather right now couldn't be more perfect. I love the start of spring time. I took this pic of my dog on my mom's property a couple days ago.

Where did you find that R2?  My husband would totally dig that.  He collects Star Wars stuff in his man cave.  

BTW welcome here!

R2 was admittedly a total impulse buy. I think I was either at Target or Safeway or something... I can't remember lol. He's so comfy. I keep him at my office :)
