The Greatest Escape is that of the mind... Welcome to My Escape...
About Me and My Photography Experience:
I am currently a Network Engineer by trade. I have done a few things in my life. While in the Air Force (1976-1985), I was in the Security Police career field. While in the Air Force I also bread and showed Alaskan Malamutes. When I got out I did security and P.I. work for a while. I used to do a lot of 35mm film photography in the late 70's and early 80's. I had my own enlarger and used to enlarge shots up to 16x20. All that went to my ex in the divorce, so for close to 20 years I did not do any photography. I started up again from scratch just within the last couple of years, where I got into digital. I love taking pictures of nature, just pretty much anything outdoors. More about me can be seen at my website listed below.
My Photography Equipment:
I currently use a Canon 50D & a 5D Mk III with the following lenses:
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0 L USM
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
A Manfrotto 190 CF TRIPOD-Q90-3 SECTION tripod and the 3265 Joystick Head. I have a Manfrotto Monopod that has come in very handy at times.
I picked up the Canon TC-80N3 (Timer Remote Controller).
I am a beginner ... I am in the process of buying lenses and it is so confusing... I really want to buy a good 24 X 70 and a 70 X 300.. But the prices vary so much and as a beginner I just don't want to waste money. I would like to buy better lenses the first time out then buy cheaper stuff and have to upgrade... I have been studying and learning but just stuck on the lens issue... I have a Nikon D610 camera.
