Hello all, I am brand new to the community and thought I'd do an intro for myself since I plan on trying to contribute where I can. I have had an interest in photography for years (took two semesters of a photo class back in college 10 years ago) but never really had the resources to really get into it until a couple months ago when I finally took the leap on a T5i with the 18-135mm and the nifty fifty. I gave the fifty to my sister for Christmas and replaced it with the 85mm/1.8, and I received the new EF-S 24mm/2.8 pancake for Christmas.
my main intentions are to develop skills in portraiture and some landscape/wildlife/macro photography, but i am a bit of an introvert so i see that as being my biggest challenge, if i'm being honest. my goal for this year is to be able to make a decent side income from my photos and maybe within a few years, once i've honed my skills enough, pursue it full-time, probably adding weddings into the mix. i edit exclusively in Lightroom right now but am starting to dabble in PS.
looking forward to reading and learning all i can from what appears to be a fantastic community!
