Hey everybody. I'm Chris, yakatme's son. I've been watching my dad take pictures and getting so addicted to this site for a looong time. I was thinking he must do it for a good reason so I decided to come check it out. He got me set up with his sony DSC-F707 and is going to help me with taking pictures. I already got a great idea for the afterlife challenge with nobody's help. I hope all of you can help me out too. See ya later.

I wanted to be first to welcome my son to this wonderful community. As he stated, I've been dragging him everywhere to take yet more pictures of everything. I have actually embarassed him somewhat with props and extreme endeavors to get the shot that I am after.

I opened the door to photography for him a long time ago, but he wasn't interested in stepping through and I didn't want to push him too hard to do so. Today, he expressed interest in tagging along on the Florida GTG that is in the plannning and also on a trip with a local camera club to the zoo tomorrow.

So I passed along my DSC F707 (the battery is charging now) and he can't wait to get started. His idea for the Afterlife challenge is actually a fantastic one, and it was all his. He got inspiration for the idea from an image that he saw on this site while looking over my shoulder.

Well, I'll be in the background, looking over his shoulder while he is on this site. But, just in case, I would appreciate it also if you all would keep an eye out for him too. I know that you would even if I didn't ask.

Glad to have you join us Chris!

That's quite a camera for a 13-year-old! How about donating it to your resident 20-year-old who will give you a nice asian camera in return, hmmm?

Welcome to DPC... have a great time with photography.

Of course, you realize you run a terrible risk that should you start beating your dad in challenges that it could cause internal family strife. ;)

welcome to DPC. You'll have the opportunity to learn from some very good photographer here. Hope your dad doesnt feel slighted when you start coming in here for advice instead of going to him. ;-)

He's been giving me advice. He has a good eye and finds good photo opportunities all the time. He also constantly criticizes me for my challenge entries and tells me that I made the wrong choice of images for submission.

I just hope that he won't stop helping ME out.
