    I started taking photographs back when I was probably around 8 years old, but it was tourist type shooting. I don't remember how old I was when I got my first digital camera - a 3.3 megapixel Kodak. But it wasn't until I was 32 (back in 2006) that I really started getting into photography, learning about composition, ISO, shutter speed, f-stops, etc.

    When I graduated highschool, I had my first camera as a gift. I dont know why they gave me that. Anyhow, I tried working on it but I think camera's don't like me but I like those that are taken by other people

    I started playing around with photography about 2 years ago, so that I could take better images for my wifes website, I enjoy it very much, but don't get as much time to spend on it as I would like.

    Random thought; I love threads like these. EVERYONE has a story. Everyone has a history. And conversations like these bring those stories out.

    So old-school. haha

    I can agree though, when I get filthy, stinkin', rich I'd like to collect old cameras.

    They're so simple that you can see the marvel of construction and working mechanisms. My D80 is beautiful, of course, but it's basically a black box with software inside. Today I saw a 4 x 5 film camera (one of those with the black cloth and dip-stick thing to fire the shutter), it was so cool to examine. All the gears. All the moving parts. One slick machine.

    Something like this, but a modern version of it.

    I checked it out. I like your long-exposure water stuff. Cool.

    and yeah I currently use a Canon EOS 400D with Canon 50mm 1.8 and Canon 10-22mm.
    bah... Nikon is way better than Canon. :P

    If you enjoy it, that's all that matters.

    I started as a child with a single use camera I got for my birthday

    Afterwards when I was 16, bought me a Minolta Zoom Compact camera.
    Then when I was 18 I bought me a Lomo LC-A experimental camera.
    Then I start shooting with a Nikon Reflex (F401) I borrowed from my grandfather.
    Bought a second hand Lubitel 166B. Some toycams like: Supersampler and a rangefinder: Seagull 205A. I worked in a photo store for a year and a half selling photo equipment and learned lots of stuff there. But the boss was an idiot and I ran away there...

    Now I'm 25 and I'm shooting digital with Nikon D50 for 2 years. Still as hobby, and I'm not planning to go professional or go further in it. Just having fun

    2003 with a point-and-shoot film camera. Named it "Grey Box".

    In 2004 I got a film SLR and took a quick course in using it. Called this one "Judith" (to go with my tripod, "Edith").

    In 2006 I went digital, gave Judith away, and bought "Twii", my Nikon D80.

    I'm still using Twii, though her sensor needs cleaning and I can't find anyone in Trinidad to do it.

    Been having fun so far, but wow, what an expensive hobby!

    I started as an undergraduate. At first as a hobby, later as a part-time income earner.

    I tried it when I saw the hundreds of pictures a friend of mine had. He has so memories locked up in them. I decided to buy my own camera and started shooting (pictures).
