I've been reading these forums for many years, so now, I'm finely making the jump from film to digital photography, a rather large jump at that.
I just purchased the Nikon D200, PhotoShop CS2, monitor calibration hardware and software. My computer is up to date, XP Pro, fast dual core processor with 2 GB of ram, and room for two more. (4 slots)
Now I need to get a book(s) that will get me started with PhotoShop and digital workflow.
I already have a pretty good idea of how all of the parts of a digital darkroom fit to gather, so now, its time to start learning photoshop. I know its going to take time to get up to speed with all of this, and I have a lot on my plate, but, you have to start somewhere.
