Photo Manipulation

I am a 19 year old college student at Penn State University. I work for a sign shop, making anything from vinyl stickers to a mcdonalds arch. I've worked there for less then a year.I have been doing photo editing and photography since i was 10. I started out doing it just as something to do, but it was grown into a passion of mine and has actually become a major part of me. The programs i use include Photoshop 7.0 & CS2 along with Adobe Illustrator and Composer.
