I purchased my first camera with paper route money when I was twelve years old. I still remember that camera, it was a Kodak 110 insatamatic. My wife and I received a 35mm Mamiya as a wedding gift from my parents,(thirty years ago). I have gone through a couple of different cameras over the last 30 years and now shoot with the Canon 50D and use the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 USM, a Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS II USM and a 12-24mm for most of my images. My two sons have grown, so my photography interest have moved from Little League games, to wakeboarding and now to my three yellow labs, Levi, Luna and Wall-E. I enjoy landscape, still life and macro photography. I take photography for a local winery which they use in their monthly wine publication...so I guess I have been published.
I have only scratched the surface of knowledge that I wish to learn. Little steps, but I will get there......slow but sure.
