    Greetings folks!

    I've been lurking on these forums since sometime in November doing camera research on the m4/3 system. You guys were a great help, and I went ahead and recently got a Panasonic G2. Love it! I'm new to anything beyond point and shoot photography, so I've got a lot of learning to do.

    I've been taking photos with point and shoots for years. Over the last couple years I've had an iPhone in my pocket, which has been fun for grabbing quick shots. I shoot a lot of agriculture-related photos; I was born and raised on a farm, and I'm in the industry as an adult. Winter is a bit frustrating for me with a new camera--there's nothing growing and no field work going on!

    I've got a Flickr archive going back a few years: Flickr: ZeaMays' Photostream and I'm attempting a 'photo almost every day' project over on Blipfoto: Blipfoto :: Cornwuff :: 5 January 2011

    Thanks for being such a great resource!

    Hi and welcome here.
     
  8. Welcome from another northern Illini. I know what you mean about the frustrating winter weather. We had 1-2 ft. of snow and everything looked so nice and clean. Then three days of 50 degrees plus and now all looks gray and dirty.

    Hello flatlanders. Get out there and take some cool grimy, grainy shots, bitter, cold shots. I love winter photography.
