Hello, My name is Rachel and I am from Wisconsin. I am a new to photography and bought my first camera (K-50) last October. I am looking forward to meeting all of you and learning as much as I can along the way

Welcome to the forum, Can we call you "cheese head"?

We don't really help people, we just tell them how o spend their money (what lenses to buy.)
OK, so sometimes we do help people., for some reason it's hard to admit...

Hi Kerrowdown, this is very educational; I knew Green Bay Packer fans were cheese heads but didn't realise it related to Wisconsin in general Cheesehead - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thanks folks, wouldn't have got there on my own.

It still seems a very forward question to ask a young lady to me.

Ya, she's probably trying to decide how best to ignore me. I have that effect on women.

I'm never that lucky... I always seem to become the focus of hostilities.

Hello Everyone! Thanks for the warm welcome lol. I guess cheesehead comes with the territory but if your going to start playing like that I will have to look up what to call the rest of you ha! I may live here but I am not a die hard packer fan or football fan for that matter. My other half is taking the day off today though for the season opener. He will watch the game while I'm engrossed in photo tutorials on the internet.
