    Hi. My name is Tom. I am from Georgia but currently spend 6 months (summer) in Maine. I have been involved in photography since college in the 60's. I have used 35mm many years ago, and mostly medium format, and large format (4x5) in the past 20 years. I mostly shot landscapes, and did a few weddings. I had gotten away from photography for several years as all of my gear was large and I often did not have the room to transport it.

    Last year, I decided to move to digital, and sold my medium and large format cameras. I spent about 6 months researching cameras, and thought I wanted a full-frame (which I could not afford) or APS-C sensor. But then I stumbled on the world of micro four-thirds, and was impressed by the images. Thanks to this forum, I got a lot of good information, and ordered an Olympus OM-D EM-5 on announcement day, and received it in late May. I continue to be impressed by this little camera as I struggle to understand all of its settngs, as well as processing digital in Lightroom. I am doing mostly street photography and some landscapes now.
