I started photography seriously during my sophomore year at school when I was taking a course to fulfill a requirement. It would lead to my purchase of my first SLR (A Canon AE1) and a deep love of the art.
After school, I had less and less time for photography, and took few pictures until my mother gifted me with an Exilim z4u (point and shoot) which rekindled the desire to increase my skills as a photographer again, as well as simply take more pictures.
Now after some years, I feel I'm ready to get back into a serious camera. Fortunately the digital age has made the process much easier and combined the best of both worlds with digital SLRs. In January of 2007 I purchased a Canon Rebel XTi (EOS 400D) and all the pictures from that date and beyond are taken with that camera
