I've been an amateur photographer since early in 2007 when I bought my Casio EX-Z700 compact camera. Since then I've also bought a Canon S3is, a Canon 40D plus various lenses, and recently a Canon Powershot SX220 HS compact as the 40D is getting a little heavy lately. Most recently I got a Nikon D5100 which is a great little lightweight DSLR with a bundle of useful features, and it has now become my main camera. I've also been enjoying taking retro-style pictures with my mobile phone. My favourite style of photography is street, and especially candid street portraits, though I enjoy shooting most subjects.
I carry at least one camera everywhere I go and contribute to society by making most of my photos available on the Creative Commons.
