    Hello All
    Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I am a noobie but very keen to learn - have done a LOT of reading so time to get the all inportant experience and take loads of photos!!

    My Mum passed away last month and as something I would always remember her by, I decided that from some of my inheritance I would start my photography journey as a tribute to her. She used to take some great photos so I know she will be happy for me!!

    I am going shopping next week and have made a list of what my initial set up will be:
    Canon EOS 40D
    Prime lens EF 85/1.8
    EF-S 17-55 2.8 IS USM
    EF 70-200mm 2.8 L USM
    Canon 430EX
    UV and polarising filters


    Still looking at which tripod and bag to use - will continue to search the forums and see what most people reccomend;)

    Cheers

    Hello there, and welcome to TPF :)

    Sorry to hear about your mum, though it's nice that you've chosen to honour her with such a lovely hobby.

    Enjoy your stay, and don't be too shy :)

    Hi, and welcome to TPF.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, and echo nynfortoo's comment that it's a wonderful way to remember your mum, by sharing an interest (photography) that no doubt gave your mum much pleasure.
