The Photography Network - PictureSocial

I joined a few weeks back and life has gone the way of a crazy freeway, thus not giving me much time to post an introduction. Anyhow, Hi! I am sure I am reiterating what my profile says, but I am from San Diego, CA and a Photography student at The Art Institute. I am a current IT Professional, but want to follow a passion instead. I am a geek at heart, so new tech, new lenses, new cameras, etc. is always fascinating for me, and I try to resist the urge to run out and buy it. Scenics and Macro photography have been my leisure pleasure. We (wife and two daughters) just moved into a house, which gives me an opportunity to turn the garage into a mini studio.

In the coming weeks, I am going to look at getting a strobe studio setup. For lighting, this is the area that I am the most uncertain with. At the end of last year, I went through a photography class that used a pair hot lights. This summer, I will be taking a studio photography course, which requires strobes. Never have used any, I felt it would be beneficial to get them sooner than later so I can at least get a little acquainted. Trying to figure out what all to order for a studio setup is fairly nerve-racking with all the accessories and do-dads that can be used. That's where I am at today.

My current photo equipment is a D300 with a few Nikkor lenses: 105 prime, 60 prime, 17-55 zoom, and a 55-200 zoom.

As time allows, I hope to be around and active in the forums and this site in general.
