I got my first SLR in Sep 2006 - Canon 350D and some consumer lenses. I then became a bit of a geak and bought a lot of books on how to shoot and upgraded to L series lenses and a 400D, then a 30D then a 40D - shop-aholic.
I still do not have the patience to get the perfect shot, or for much photoshop work, I mainly try to capture the moment and prefer photos of people, especially my kids, and hence often the quality is not great but the memory captured is.
August 2010 - bought a Canon 7D and some studio backdrops in white and black - time to move up a level in skill I hope!
