One more DSLR newbie to the group!

Hey everybody, i'm an amateur photographer that's now blogging for social photography site Dipping into this forum for the first time, hoping to network with some like minded people and learn a few things about photography. Sure I'll be back soon with some newbie questions for y'all!
Welcome to the forums! :) I see you are based in San Diego - such a beautiful part of the world! We've got some close friends who live in Santa Barbara and they love it over there.
