I am a work in progress. My favorite subject to photograph or to talk about is my son. He was my first reason to actually learn to use a camera. I love learning the art of photography and welcome your constructive comments!

Thanks Mary Brown for my avatar!

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?
