Newbie from Upstate NY

Hi, my name is Alice. I own a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am GT. I bought it back in September. Just starting to do some small mods to it. I used to own a 1998 Grand Am SE, but I got rid of that when I bought the '04 GT.

Mike-

I usually use Canons. I have for years! I started out with a Beseler Topcon when I was in Junior High, got a Pentax K-1000 in High School, went to photography school and used a Bronica ETRSi and shot with a 4x5 view camera, graduated and got a Pentax P30T and a used Bronica SQaM (was always jealous of the square format ), in 1996 I bought a Canon Elan II, then an Elan 7 (hated that one), then the Canon EOS 3, now I either shoot with a Canon 20D or the Canon 5D (they are my store's cameras, I have been dumping $$ into modding the GT so I haven't really been saving up for another camera).

I started with a Nikon FG 35mm SLR film camera

Before graduating high school, bought myself:
Nikon F-801s 35mm SLR camera with: 35-70mm f/2.8 lens, 80-200mm f/2.8 lens, SB-24 flash, Sekonic L-328 light meter with 5 reflective reading attachment, & a Quantum battery pack.

Went to college, & used:
Mamiya 645 Super & Cambo 4x5" view cameras.

Then bought myself:
Minolta FlashMeter V with 5 reflective attachment
Mamiya 645 Pro camera with 80mm f/2.8 leaf shutter lens, 120 film back & polariod film holder.

Back when I went to school...
Digital ?
What digital ?



Now I don't shoot anything anymore
Working, servicing pro's renting equipment to them at a retail store; is enough for me.

Hallmark was only 10 months...of really intense "boot camp". I was class of 1995. Everything was film...they started to transition to digital the year after I graduated. This was all still photography as well. I even learned how to retouch negatives...do I still remember??? NO!!

Yeah, I have photos that I could post...just not on this computer. They are on my external at home. Lately in my free time, besides working on my car and photographing my car, I have been photographing nature. I used to do a lot of concert photos for the State of NY, I kinda got burnt out on it, though.
