    Hi all!

    I've been hanging around here for almost a year so I guess it's time for me to introduce myself.

    I'm quite new to photography and it is a hobby for me. I've bought a Nikon D70 many, many years ago but I guess I used it like most people do, at home and as a point and shoot. It was basically too big. A few years a go I then bought a Canon S90 p&S camera. Great one and I actually brought it with me quite often.
    Still mainly taking pictures of family and friends as people tend to do. In november last year I thought I wanted to buy a small but a bit more serious camera to document my travels at work. I then found out about the m43 stuff and the Sony Nex stuff. I guess I can thank Steve Huff and his page for getting my first m43 setup:

    Olympus E-P3
    Olympus 45mm
    Olympus 17mm

    I directly fell in love and since that day photography has been my thing when I have a few minutes of spare time. Today I mostly shoot landscape but try to take a few pictures of the kids as well :)

    My setup today has been updated a bit and today I use:
    Olympus E-M5 (what a camera!)
    Panasonic GH3
    Olympus 45mm f1.8
    Panasonic 25mm f1.4
    Panasonic 12-35 f2.8 (most used lens I must admit)
    Panasonic 45-200mm
    Panasonic 14mm f2.5
    Sigma 28mm f2.8 macro (adapted)
    Carl Zeiss Tessar 45mm f2.8

    I also use quite a few filters (B+W, Cokin, Kenko, Hoya etc) for my images. I really to to come as close to my wished result in the camera and the finalise the image the image in Lightroom than the other way around.

    A few things that I really appreciate about photography is that I really learned to look at the nature in a complete new way that makes me see things I would have noticed earlier. And just as important, as I such a newbie to this I learn new things every week that makes me a little bit better.

    This forum has really made me stretch my knowledge about photography so thanks to you all! And let's not forget all the inspiration I get from the great pictures I've seen here!

    I've posted some images on this forum already but if you wanna see what I've been up to so far you can check out my 500px site and Flickr site:
