Obviously I am new to this forum. Being a rookie at digital photography I hope some of you experienced guys can occasionally help me out. I look forward to learning more.

Welcome to the forums. We were all rookies at one time. I do not know whether you're completely new to photography or just digital photography but I would suggest subscribing to forums like this, watching photography-related videos on Youtube, reading photography books, asking questions. There is a site that offers you the chance to watch photography classes live as they are happening for free and it is called CreativeLive. I'm entirely self-taught at photography so the way that I learned (and am still learning) learning photography is that I downloaded some photography videos and books.

Thanks for the welcome. I just bought my first dslr (Pentax K100d) and I am bound to learn how to use it. I purchased the Magic Lantern Guide for my camera and I am practicing with it. Thanks again for the welcome.
