Updated about me:
Most people just call me Frankie or Frank, use whichever you prefer. I'm on and off from this place sporadically, last time I signed onto this place was 2 years ago. Can't really say much besides that photography's a really strong passion for me, I'd like to become professional one day but I'll have to learn so much before I can declare myself a professional. More than likely I'll just shoot weddings for a living but who knows.
If you're interested in the equipment I use I just stick with a basic nikon D3000 with the Nikkor 35mm 1.8 AF-S G lens and the Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 lens. Both of those lenses are stupidly sharp and are work horses as far as shooting is concerned. I can go through an entire wedding with just those two lenses. I also use a variety of speedlights and lighting diffusers including a softbox and umbrella for portraiture. I have only been shooting seriously for about a year but have been studying photography for years.
I currently have a brother in the Navy who's going into the submarine fleet. He kinda has bigger balls then a lot of us to say the least. Respect the job despite the fact that there are assholes in the profession, they're everywhere, though. On a side note I have my brother to thank (or blame) for turning me into an audiophile, spent just about $300 in headphone equipment alone, no where near as much as I spent on my photographic gear (over $1200) but it's certainly higher than what most people are willing to shell out.
Besides all that there's nothing much else to say.
