Introduction - Hello, I'm Dan

Hello everyone. I’m from Oshkosh, Wisconsin. I moved here 13 years ago from Phoenix, Arizona. I’ve been interested in photography for about 4 years now. I got serious about it about 2 years ago. I dabble in a lot of different types of photography and enjoy being exposed to new things. My passion is landscapes and nature. I enjoy travelling when I get the chance and try get to a new destination each year. I work a desk job, have a family, and other hobbies so I don’t get out to take pictures as often as I’d like. I’m hoping this will be a great place to meet other photographers, benefit from their knowledge, and have some of my work critiqued so I can grow as a photographer.

Dang, Dan! I think you hit it outta the park with this first post. I think it’s a stunning “wall hanger” capture. Welcome , keep 'em coming.

Hi Dan and welcome from another Wisconsin resident, albeit in a far less populated area - Tomahawk! It’s ok if you have to google. I didn’t have as drastic a climate change with my move from NH. Glad you found your way to us and I hope you will find your new photographic home. A nice look at an iconic view with this photo, although I look forward to seeing more of that corner of Wisconsin!

Hi Dan,
Welcome to NPN.
Wow, that is an awesome first image. What a great view in a beautiful mood.

I hope you will enjoy this friendly community as much as I do. Everybody is eager to help.

Can’t wait to see more of your work.

Welcome to NPN Dan! Great to have you here.

I think you’ve already nailed it! Indeed a great community and most are about growth and learning new things. I know as someone who’s had a camera since the 70’s… yeah, I’m getting old - and I’m one of those that fits in the "hard to teach an old dog new tricks… but I’m trying and have grown a bit in recent times.

Don’t be shy, jump right in. We look forward to your images and participation in the galleries.


Hi Dan, and welcome! I’m fairly new here too, but have been shooting a lot longer than 4 years! I’m really appreciating critiques from the community. That’s a very nice shot of Mesa Arch, and a different perspective than the usual one.

Hi Dan and welcome to NPN. I also enjoy meeting other photographers and seeing their images and hearing their opinions and ideas on other people’s images or on photography in general.
