Hey guys, name is Mike and I'm from the UK. Recently made the plunge and got myself a DSLR. Always wanted to do photography but never quite got round to it until now. I went for a Canon 450D with the IS 18-55m lens which came with it. I love skiing and so hope to be able to get comfortable with the camera before I take it with me skiing. Been reading up on a few articles here and there and figured I may as well join a forum!
