has been a member since May 2008 and goes by blimes.

I am finishing up a PhD in political science from the University of Colorado. I currently live in Orem, Utah.

I shoot mostly color nature photographs, but looking through the submissions on this site, I have been working to branch out. I appreciate all the great feedback and support I have received from JPG members, and I look forward to seeing more of your work.

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?
