Hello people,

Let me introduce myself.

I'm Eric, 40 years old, married, we have two kids.
I live in the Netherlands, in a place called Hillegom, which is well known for it's flower bulbs.

I've been into photography (film) as a hobby for a while, but gave up on it when kids and work came in between.

now (10+ years later) I find myself in a position where I have seas of time, and really want to get back into pohotography.
I've always admired, and loved to look at macro shots, but never really got to it with my trusty EOS 1000f.

So here I am, ready to purchase a Canon 30D, a 90mm Tamron, and full of questions.
I ordered a few books to brush up on techniques, such as composition etc, but probably will still be looking for some answers, which I hope to find here.

I also would like to compliment all of you on your photos, I've been browsing the galleries, and the photos in there made my jaw drop,
it actually took me a whole day to go through the first 6 pages, awesome stuff.

kind regards,

Eric.

Get either a 180 mil Tamron or Sigma or, if you can afford it, the 180 mil Canon. In no time you’ll enjoy the additional working distance (over a 90 / 100 mm lens) when shooting living subjects!
