Good Evening. Just returned home after our third Camera Club meeting. Introdued by one of the memebers to this site and so excited that thought I would register and introduce myself without delay.

I am a hapilly married, 41 years old father of two (boys). My wife and I are taking up Photography together, mainly as a hobby and see where it takes us. At last, something we both enjoy and can do together. Two fun loving dogs just waiting to be snapped in full flight. I have just last night endulged in my first DSLR Camera off ebay.. Canon EOS 350d with an EF-S 17-85mm IS Lens and some bits and pieces for 200. I collect it tomorrow and can't wait. Few years old but great condition and minimal use. Ideal for me as a total beginner I hope..

Now the fun begins so be prepared for a few questions here and there.... Looking forward to sharing ideas and hoping for some help and comments over the next few months especially. Thanks and looking forward to life through the ephotozine experience....

Welcome aboard Chris. You are in the right place to get advise and help in your new found interest in photography. A big plus that the wife is also interested (could get quite competative). Looking forward to seeing your uploads in the near future.
