Hi, I'm an artist from Nebraska, and I photograph everything I paint. I have a Pentax IST*D, and a 100. I have basic lenses so there is no exciting late night photo shoots, just broad daylight stuff. I repeat, I'm not a photographer, I'm an artist with a camera, so don't expect a lot out of me picture-wise.

Welcome to the forum! (So, you think less is expected from an artist than from a photographer?)

Good point! I love it! Welcome to the forum, my belief is that an Artist is a good photographer and a good photographer is an Artist!

I'm more interested in a finished painting than a perfect photo. There are a lot of technical things with a camera that I don't bother learning since I'm not concerning myself with the photo being the finished product. I realize some people think because they have an SLR camera, that makes them a photographer. I'm not under that delusion. I've seen my pictures!
