YANG

Yet another new guy -- well, to the Pixalo forums at least. I found out about this place while googling with a question, and found the answer here. So, I figured this must be a good site

I've been into photography for about 25 years. Started off shooting Canon FD (my favorites were the old F-1 and FTb cameras), then later began shooting Nikon. Still own an F2 with a decent assortment of lenses. I bought the wife an EOS Rebel almost 20 years ago and when it finally wore out, replaced it with an EOS Elan IIe. Nice camera. This past Christmas, my wife bought me my first DSLR -- an EOS Rebel XS (1000D). An entry-level starter DSLR it is, but I have found it to be a very capable tool and a real hoot to use.

Like many others, I suppose, I drifted away from film photography because of the ease of manipulating digital images and moving them around. I was using a P&S digicam for this, and it has done the job well. Interestingly, however, using an SLR on a regular basis again has re-awakened a desire to shoot film, so for the first time in quite a while, I've dug out the film cameras and have begun shooting with them again. It's all good.

Welp, I think I'll go browse the forums for a while. Good to be here.

Best,

Michael

Re: YANG

Thanks for the welcome, folks. I noticed after joining the forum that most of y'all are from the British Isles. Well, being that the progenitor of my family line came from Kirkcudbright, Scotland, perhaps this here Texan can find a way to fit in. Someday, I swear, I'm gonna visit my ancestral home.

Best,

Michael McBroom
