Hello everyone. I have been a hobby photographer for years, but never too seriously. Mostly automatic settings but occasionally using aperture or shutter priority. I have recently retired and find myself with a lot of time on my hands and have decided to get more serious about photography. I have just ordered a Canon EOS 70D and will be using the kit lenses until I can afford to get a couple of better lenses. I intend to mostly shoot landscapes, nature, and wildlife. But, I will also shoot some portraits and street photography.
