Default Hello from So. California

Hi!
My name is Sharna and I'm a Photographer.....

I started seriously pursuing photography in 2006 when my husband took me to my first live football game. Packers Vs. Chargers at Charger Stadium. I had taken pictures of my daughters milestones with a P&S before that. For my birthday that year my husband had bought me an "expensive" P&S and I took that to the football game to take pictures. I took A LOT of pictures. Mostly of Brett Favre =).

I got home with the pictures and was VERY disappointed with the results. For a camera that cost as much or more than a DSLR it didn't take very good pictures. So, we took the camera, card and all accessories back to Circuit City and purchased my first DSLR the Canon XTi. I used that for a few years in order to learn the basics. I had help from another online forum and I've learned a lot since those days.

I now have a Canon 7D and I shoot motor-sports.

I have also been shooting a lot of portraits using the strobist method (Off camera flash). I am told I do very good work. I have a website and I post a lot of my work there.

I hope to be a more active member of this site and maybe make friends and talk about what we all have in common....our passion...our photography!

Thanks for reading and maybe messaging me here or even visiting my site.

Sharna

Hey Sharma. Welcome to Steve's.

If you look at our Sports & Action Photos Forum, you'll find that some of our other members like to shoot Motorsports, too; and you'll find lots of other forums setup for People Photos and more that you may want to check out.

We'll look forward to seeing you visit.

Jim, Thanks. Appreciate a good warm welcome. I'm heading to the track next weekend so I'll be posting some of those. I may post one or two from Feb.s shoot tomorrow.

Don,

Thank you for the Link here. I would have put you down as a referral but didn't know what name you used here. So if anyone can change that I'd be much appreciative. I'll be bouncing in and out. I may like it here, it's kind of laid back. FM is fast!
