    I found this forum on the internet while browsing for a place where I could post my photos and get some honest feed back on them, since I love to learn.
    When I was young I used to take mostly festival and concert photos.
    My camera was a Zenith with a tele lens.
    Now many many years later I picked back up my old hobby :)
    The object has changed though.
    My passion now is Macro photos of flowers and my cats :)
    The camera I use now is a Panasonic FZ1000 and a Raynox 250.
    So much has changed over those years and I am starting from scratch again :)
    I am on a super low budget (welfare, due to some illnesses).
    So no fancy gear for me and I try getting the most out of what I have.

    I live in the south of the Netherlands in a sweet colorful little house with a small garden.
    Gardening used to be a huge hobby but due to my health
    I had to cut back on that.
    My other hobbies are the computer and being creative.
    I used to do webdesign and make stationary, just for fun.
    A big passion is gaming.
    I played most big MMORPG's and enjoy exploring the fantasy worlds.
    At the moment I am back in Guildwars 2 and having lots of fun :)
    I believe it is the kid in me that has such a good time there
    and I wanna keep it that way :)

    I am a positive person who likes to learn a lot.
    Deep critical thinking is something I enjoy too :)
    Whenever I can I help or support my friends.
    I appreciate honesty, a sharp mind and good humor.

    Looking forward to your photos and your feedback *waves*
    Greetings Monika.

    Welcome!

    Some of the best gear (lenses) are of the older, used variety that are currently being sold at low prices. :1219:

    Oh that is nice to hear Designer :)
    Would you mind giving me some tips ?
    I cannot handle a too heavy camera, due to hand problems :)
    I would love a camera with a great macro lens.
    My Panasonic is not bad but when I tried shooting snowflakes
    this winter I noticed it and the Raynox 250 were lacking :)
    So I am open to anything that you would suggest
    keep in mind though that I am on a very tight budget :)
    Many thanks in advance !

    I'm unfamiliar with your camera, so I will not be much help there. I have a Nikon D7100 for which I have purchased several lenses over the past year. My macro is a new Tokina AT-X ProD 100mm f/2.8 Macro.

    I have purchased all my other lenses used.

    I think you will be looking for a smaller camera, but I can't help you there either.
