I first started taking photos in 1986, using a Minolta 7000I. I loved that camera, and took rolls and rolls of film. I hardly went anywhere without it.
     When it came time to switch to digital, I started out with a Konica Digital Revio KD400Z. The only thing I liked about that camera was the viewfinder. Yes, a small, early digital camera with a viewfinder. What I disliked the most about the camera was the lag.
     I then took the big step and bought a Konica-Minolta 7D. Yes, my two cameras merged into one. I chose the 7D because I had a lot of lenses for it. That was probably not the wisest way to make such a decision. But, I have it and I still use it. I am tempted to replace it, but I don't want to spend all that money. Since I can shoot in raw, I figure I can fix what I don't like.

I also have a Lumix DMZ-TZ3 that I carry with me at all times. I like the photos it takes, I hate the fact that it does not have a viewfinder, and it is not an SLR. Other than that… My favorite subject has always been flowers. My walls are covered with my photos. Now that I have learned a lot, I would like to replace many of them, but I won't.
     I am the president of our community camera club, and feel that I have improved greatly since joining the Boynton Beach Camera Club. I have learned a lot just by watching the judging of the photographs. I finally got to enter competitions in Sept. 2009. Out of 8 entries, I have earned 5 27s (highest score), 1 26 and 1 25. I am quite proud of that.
     I have also become a member of PSA. I am learning a lot and I hope to improve. I have not yet won any stars or anything like that. Maybe some day….
