Greetings everyone. I just wanted to make a quick introduction to all you Photoforum folks. I currently live in Orlando, FL and I have been a photography enthusiast since the days of film. My first camera was a Nikon FG. I shot a lot and read a lot back then and really enjoyed the hobby… until a divorce in 1991, I lost my camera.


In 2004, after a long hyatus, I bought a Canon D-Reb and enjoyed it for several years. I bought myself a 300mm f/4 and did a bit of wildlife/birding photography. But alas, life seemed to push me away of the hobby and never devoted as much effort as I had with my FG.


A couple of years ago, I upgraded to a Canon T3i, which is an amazing little camera! It is chocked full of features that I couldn’t have even imagined from my D-Reb days! I haven’t used it as much as I would like, and my wife’s point & shoot seems to find its way into vacation luggage more than the T3i…


Well, my wife and I recently went to Europe for a month. Shot thousands of photos, but found the results VERY disappointing. I keep kicking myself for not taking my DSLR… but we were backpacking and didn’t have room nor could spare the extra weight… BIG MISTAKE, MAKE ROOM!


I started researching via YouTube and have found a wealth of knowledge about camera’s, photography and photoshop. I am trying to jump back into the hobby with both feet. I upgraded to new lenses (content aperture), another flash, umbrella and a reflector kit.


I’m here looking for a little help and guidance for photography, photoshop and portraiture (something I have never played with much beyond family photos).


My equipment is pared down to the following:
Canon T3i
Canon 17-55mm f/2.8
Canon 70-200mm f/4
Canon 300mm f/4
Speedlite ex550
Speedlite ex600rt
Manfrotto tripod w/ ball head.


ASTRO STUFF:
12” f/5 Dobsonian Telescope
8” f/10 SCT
4” f/15 MakCas


I look forward to chatting with everyone.
