I'm a 48 years old french canadian guy from Montréal, Canada. I worked as a "retoucheur photo" in a major newspaper in Montréal called La Presse. I have a passion about photography since the early 80's with the discovery of a great photographer who worked at La Presse newspaper: Antoine Désilets. He was(is) a photojournalist with a very strong sense of the "decisive moment" and had a eye for those littles things in everyday life. I learned a lot trough his books on photography. Because of him and some other like Bresson, Capa etc...i bought a Nikon Fe, 50 mm 1,8 lens and made a lot of milleage with it. After that, Nikon 601(first autofocus camera), Canon G1(first digital, raw files),Nikon D80 and today very happy with a Lumix Gf1. Well that's about it folks. I'm not use to write that long in english since my first language is french. Hope everything is o.k. :smile: Have a nice day. P.S. This place here is a great place to hang out. Very nice people and the admins very dedicated to the site. Cheers to them.
