    My name is Ava and I've been interested in photography for a long, long time. My friend, Karen (flyby) convinced me to get a 4/3 camera so I could join this forum. So I bought an Olympus E-PL1 and can now add this to my arsenal of other cameras. I became interested in photography after taking a class in middle school at the age of 12.

    My first camera was a 35mm Minolta SRT-102 that I have tucked safely away. I went through many cameras through the years, film and digital, and have currently settled on a few.

    I am a photojournalism student and have won prizes for my work - both creative and journalistic. I shoot with a Canon 40D with a host of great lenses - my prized possession being my Canon 70-200mm 2.8L IS - beautiful glass.

    Last year I got a Panasonic Lumix LX3 for doing street photography but I've been using it for landscapes too. I really love this camera. To see some of the photographs I've taken with it go to The Way I See It, my Tumblr blog.

    Now I'm going to experiment with my new Olympus E-PL1 and see what I can do. This is great forum and I look forward to contributing. Let the journey begin...

    Hi Brian,

    Thanks for the welcome and compliments. I can't take credit for the photo you mentioned - I "re-Tumblred" (like a re-tweet) from someone else. I can't figure out how the photographer did it.
