Welcome Seth. I, too, have the G85. Very nice camera. Get a fast prime with it! Also, as Lupin noted, take pictures daily. Kids are a great time in life to be motivated about photography.Hello everyone,
I have been lurking on the forums for a while, and really like the sense of community here. I'm Seth, I live in San Diego, and I am just now getting serious about taking pictures. I messed around with my father's old Minolta 35mm about 20 years ago, and that got me interested in creating images. I have since dabbled in videography (weddings and short films), and then began using a hand-me-down camera (Canon Power Shot Pro 1) for about 6 years (vacation shots mostly). My wife and I had a daughter last year, and I bought a Panny g85 to document the first years of her life. Now, I cannot leave the house without my camera. I am starting to discover what I like to shoot (and what focal lengths I best see the world through). Hoping to contribute to the community and gain insight from everyone here.
