I've been taking pictures since I was about 7 years old. I first started using a Kodak Instamatic 304 that was probably manufactured somewhere around 1965. I didn't even have to focus it. I didn't use it for long, I soon received a Canon 'Canonette' 28 with a 45mm lens, which I did have to focus. In 2001 I obtained a Canon EOS 300 (Rebel 2000). It has autofocus, so I've come full circle. First I didn't have to focus, then I did, now it focuses FOR me! It has only been since early 2002 that I have become more serious about learning the technicalities of photography.
I have now upgraded to an Elan 7E from my Rebel 2000. I also have a Canon 50mm 1.4 lens - which is excellent compared to the zoom lens I had. :)
If you wish to purchase prints of any of these photographs, please send me an email via the contact section. -- Michael

In order to optimize your monitor for displaying photos - adjust the brightness and contrast so that all the shades of gray appear distinctly in the bar above.
1. Turn the contrast on your monitor all the way up to get the brightest white your monitor can display. 2. Turn down the brightness so that you can get the blackest black and still be able to see the next brighter shade of gray on the above bar.
