    Hi...My name is Dawn. I am new to this group, and new to micro 4/3 cameras too. I am not new to photography. I had a father who collected cameras and equipment, but didn't seem to take many photos!! In my teen years I experimented with just about every make and every format of camera there was. It was fun!! I developed my own film, and turned my mom's bathroom into a darkroom....those were magical times in my memory. I can remember my mom knocking on her bathroom door telling me to pack it in so she could go to bed! I studied photography too at the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale...I thought I was going to be a pro photo journalist, but life happened along the way! I still have a strong connection to photography, and it remains one of my passions. I make photo/video slideshows for clients, and I really enjoy it! I may not take these photos, but I can bring them to life, and tell a story. I just aquired a Panasonic GH2 a few weeks ago, and I am in the process of learning to use it. I researched it for months...my current interests in photography are taking photos, but I have a real passion for video and video editing too...so, I thought this would be the perfect camera for me. I hope to learn a lot from this group....in fact, I already have...
