    My name is Jennifer and I am living in Portland, Or. I recently purchased a E-PL1 and am LOVING it. I used to shoot film "back in the day" but gave that all up when I bought my first digital camera. It was an Olympus, the first 1 megapixel camera. It was a big deal back then a camera that had more than 1 million pixels and a 3x zoom to boot. Cost me $800. Since then I have owned a series of compact "prosumer" point and shoots. Some with good quality. I have been wanting to get back to being more serious about my photography but couldn't bear the thought of dragging around a full SLR.

    I love the micro 4/4 format and am loving having the flexibility of multiple lenses. Photography has changed since the last time I was really serious. The amount of information out there is AWESOME (especially on forums like this). I think I have learned more about photography in 6 weeks than I learned in 3 years when I was in high school.

    I look forward to learning more with everyone and am open to any critiques you might have on my photos. I shoot mostly Macro/Flowers but I am trying to cure myself of this addiction.

    Welcome to the "sweet spot" of photography with :43:.

    Your shots are great. I particularly like the carnival pic and the interesting shot of your speedometer. What lens are you using for your macro work?
