Hi folks, I'm a micro four-thirds user from San Jose, CA. I like growing carnivorous plants and like documenting and sharing pictures of the same. I was not at all happy with the results I was getting with point-and-shoot cameras but I didn't want to lug a huge camera around. I had seen good reviews of micro-four third cameras and I liked the size of the GF3 - which was my first foray into the format. Since then I have purchased a GX1, an EM-5 and a number of lenses and I've never looked back. My favorite combo is the the OMD E-M5 and the Panny 45mm f/2.8 lens. I still have a lot to learn about composition and framing the subject but Oly makes it all so simple it's easy to get good results. I hope to learn how to get more out of my new camera and be inspired by the works of others to improve my photography.
