Hello Forum! A few months ago I decided I wanted to graduate from the world of point and shoot photography and get something SLR-like. A friend told me about the Panasonic DMC-GF1 so ended up buying one and have been trying to learn what all those fancy buttons on the camera do. I've been playing around with some portrait photography as I have a friend that enjoys playing around as a model. It's been quite a learning experience, especially learning that I don't know much about photography. I'm looking forward to exploring this forum and my new(ish) camera.
