has been a member since Jan 2007 and goes by TurquoiseFrog.

I have had a love for photography since age 13, when my sister gave me my first SLR. My life was forever changed. That was 30 years ago and my passion for photography has never faltered.
It has been the once constance in my life.
Other things I enjoy is travel, nature, and animals. These all go well with my obsession of photography.

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?
