Thanks in advance for any help. I am just starting to get serious about photography. I've always used P&S film and digital on auto, unless my wife set up her camera for me to take a head shot…Continue

Profile Information

About Me and My Photography Experience:
I am 41 and have loved to take photos for years, using the age old method of point and shoot, 400 speed film, and hope. I got a few good shots, but didn't now how to manage light, and often got the usual results. My wife became a hobbyist with a DSLR, starting with the 20d. I occasionally took photos on it, but usually the wife hogged the camera. She upgraded to a 7d but her job didn't really allow her to be dedicated to it. I finally expressed a full interest in photography and at her insistence am going through Understanding Exposure (and learning tons!) I am starting with a good camera and a few acceptable (not L glass, but not the cheapest third party either) lenses, hoping to upgrade in the near future.
My Photography Equipment:
Canon 7d
Canon 20 D
Tamron 2.8 24-70
Sigma 2.8-4 17-70
Tokina 12-24 F4
Sigma EX 70-200 2.8
Sigma EX 105 2.8 Macro
mounted filter set (coming tomorrow?)
580 EX flash
420 Flash

Hi Michael,

Your photos are beautiful! I currently have a Canon EOS Rebel T3i and am saving up for the 7D. The reason is that it has faster fps than the T3i. I am curious ... I had a Sigma 17-70mm 2.8 and it was horrendous! It would not focus. It just grinded and grinded and grinded and refused to focus. I returned it and I just received my replacement. Do you like yours? I'm really really hoping that the first one I had was just a lemon.


Anyway, your work (and your wife's work) is beautiful! Congratulations on discovering this beautiful art of photography!


Deal Ending Soon!
