I've been into photography for many years but never took it seriously enough to purchase a nice camera. This all came to a head when I took a trip to Yellowstone last year and all I had was my iPhone.
I was determined from that time on to acquire some decent equipment and have some fun. The Sony Nex-5 was my first camera with the kit 18-55, and after using it for 7-8 months I knew it was time to move to a DSLR. The Nikon D7000 was calling to me and I've been having a lot of fun with it.
I still have a ton of stuff to learn and the kind comments and likes really give me inspiration. Thanks.
