    Hello everyone. ; I just wanted to drop a quick line to say hi. ; I just got my first ever DSLR a few weeks back. ; I got the Nikon D90. ; I am so new I don't understand all of the terms yet. ; But I hope to learn and am taking a few classes.

    I hope to at least learn how to start taking pictures by my trip in Dec ; :D

    I will have to wait till I get home and list all of the stuff I have gotten so far. ; It will be a few days as I'm currently working two jobs to get a bigger downpayment for a new house.

    I am excited to be part of the photography world.

    Thanks to everyone for the greetings. ; I hope to get all of my stuff listed today. ; It is my first day that I have an evening free.

    I'm sure I'll have tons of questions to ask here in the near future. ; I take my first very basic class on the 27th. ; Just the basic introduction class from the local camera store. ; But it is a start.

    Are there any good books someone can recommend to learn and understand the basics of photography? ; Something that helps explain the terms and what they mean? ;

    I bought a book from Borders called The practical illustrated encyclopedia of Digital Photographyâ€

    "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson. ; Have your camera in your hand as you read it. ; That goes double for when you are reading the manual. ; You can't screw up your camera as you can always reset it back to factory defaults if you get confused. Have fun!!!
