    Hello all. New member checking in. I have followed along for some time now and just never felt I measured up. I finally am taking the leap and hope to learn from the honest critiques. Here is a recent pic from one of the forest preserves I work at.

    Welcome to BPN Vaughn, and no better way to learn, but to get stuck in by posting, and commenting on other members images too. Looks like you have good subjects at your office.

    Welcome Vaughn. BPN is a great place to learn. A good way to get started on BPN is post in the Eager to Learn Forum where you can get comfortable with the critique process rather than feeling that you've jumped straight into the deep end.

    Looking forward to seeing your images.

    Welcome aboard Vaughn. The quicker you participate and contribute, the faster you are going to learn. I remember the first time I posted, I was very nervous but it does wonders for your photography and your confidence.
