After the period of more than 20 years I jumped back to slr word six years ago: Before that using several pocket cams, both film and digital. Now Im using Nikon D7000 and recently D600 with few lenses, Micro Nikkor 60 1:2.8G ED, Nikon 18-200 f2.8 , Sigma 70-200 f2.8 and Nikon300 f2.8. Im interested in nature, birds especially but recently interested also in portraits - grand children, wonderful twins are the key reason. I could categorize myself as an enthusiast or just a hobbyist in the photography. Im lucky now to have more time when retired and just doing some minor business consultancy.
In the business I have learnt that its always best to talk with people who are ahead of me with their special expertise. Same with the photography, I wish to receive honest feedback from everybody, who has open eyes to discover both the beauty but also the worse side of the world.
