has been a member since Nov 2009 and goes by BarbaraThurlow.

I live in a suburb of Washington DC, and I love gorillas and photography. Oh...and sushi. I also love sushi.

I started getting into macro photography in the spring of 2011, after a long absence from shooting. Health and transportation issues keep me at home much of the time, and so I search my own backyard for subject matter. It has opened up a whole new world to me...there are so many amazing tiny creatures to be found everywhere.

Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?
