Howdy folks :)
« on: March 09, 2012, 12:38:42 AM »
Howdy all,

My name is Shawn. I am a 27 year old male and I live in southern Illinois. I joined after finding this forum from a forum I run :) I also joined because I am a newbie DSLR user and may need to lurk around and ask questions here and there :D

I own a Nikon D3100 DSLR and I like it a lot. I use it for my true passion, chasing storms and tornadoes :)

Thanks for having me!

Welcome Shawn.

Chasing storms - rather you than me. Some of the recent ones have been pretty violent.

   Hi and welcome.
                            Iv'e seen those storm chaseing programes on tv, and I suspect you have to be a little bit bonkers.
                            Not much opportunity for storm chaseing over here in the UK (We tend to wait for the storms to come to us!).
                            Anyway, welcome and let's see some pics.
                                      Graham. :tup:

Thanks for the welcome folks :) I have owned my Nikon for a few weeks now but haven't really had a chance to play with it. Soon I imagine though I will have some good photos :)
