Re: [ID?] Getting to know you part 2
My turn !!
Ok. Name is Rich Delboccio. I live in Northeast Illinois with my girlfriend of almost 7 years, her adult daughter, and our 2 1/2 year old Grandson (who keeps us all VERY busy, and has turned into the "Jewel" of my life) I also have 2 cats, which many of you have already seen several times.
I started off behind the camera very young with the old Kodak 110 cameras.
My first film camera was a Minolta Maxium (which I still have, but have not put film in in many years).
My digital pathway went from a Kodak DC series to the Canon Powershot G1. Once I got that G1 I became an official "Canon" person. Went from the G1 to the G3, then G5 before I got my first DSLR, the Rebel XT. I am currently shooting with a Canon T2i (which I LOVE)
I don't remember what brought my to these forums here at Dslreports.com, but I can say that I visit at least once a day, and have done so for a very long time. Mostly I lurk, read, and try to learn as much about photography as I can.
Shooting pictures is a hobby of mine. In my work life I work in IT support.
When I am not shooting or working (or playing with the kid) I am enjoying my other hobby of weather and weather forecasting (will this WINTER EVER END !@!)
Here is a shot of my and my grandson enjoying some hockey (another love of mine, and now his as well)
I don't get the time to shoot as much as I'd like and more with the kid around. (and let me tell you what many of you already know, kids are HARD to shoot pictures of....)
I spend a lot of time studying others shots, trying to learn to be a better shooter. I don't like to spend too much time in post processing, so unless I am working on panorama shots, or HDR, I try to get the shot right in the camera.
Lately I have been enjoying Macro, and am learning how to use focus stacking software. As spring approaches (if it ever gets here) I will go out hunting bugs. I REALLY enjoy those amazing macro shots of the bugs, and I'd like to try to learn that skill.
Well, I guess that's more then you knew before..
EDIT: I'll tag Exit next.
