One of my first shots with a 300D + kit lens. It also turns out to be one of my favourites :-)

My first DSLR was a 1D. I got it just before a trip to New York. This is shot at ISO 1600 (no post processing):

I started with a Rebel XT and 28-105 in late 2006, and here's the earliest photo I can find online, from November of that year. Some railroad tracks downtown Rochester, NY.

This was in 2004. We also managed to get an autograph.
If I remember correctly, he is (was?) playing every Monday or Tuesday in cafe Carlyle.

Winter of 2000, is that far enough back?
My first digital was a Canon G-1 with a whopping 3 mp (sorry to bend the topic a bit)

I put my Nikon 6006 away for good when I carried a Sony Cyber-shot to Maine for a vacation in 2003 or '04, but it was the Spring of '08 before I bought my first DSLR, a just-released Rebel XSI.
The oldest one I can find was made with my first beyond-the-kit lens purchase, a used 100mm 2.8 Macro...

After being fairly impressed with what my G3 had been giving me for about six months, Canon released the 10D and it was receiving good reviews. I've always been an SLR kind of guy so I went and spent what seemed to me like big bucks on one. That was the start of a lot of big expenditures as my consumer zooms just weren't up to the 10D's resolution. Fortunately I already had the 35f2 and 1002.8 macro which looked really good.

I got my 10D in the fall of 2003 and here are a few out of the first few weeks including a couple of my favorite granddaughter pics:




  Canon EOS 10D    73mm    f/6.3    1/250s    100 ISO    0.0 EV  






  Canon EOS 10D    135mm    f/6.3    1/100s    800 ISO    -0.3 EV  






  Canon EOS 10D    100mm    f/2.8    1/400s    200 ISO    -0.3 EV  






  Canon EOS 10D    300mm    f/5.6    1/1250s    100 ISO    0.0 EV

First was a Pentax K200D back in March of 2008, to take better photos of my children.

Pijuns in flight have evolved into a sort of a signature shot with me.
This is the first such shot I've made which I have on record. Done with 300D + 70-300 f/4-5.6 USM at 300mm.

All right, here's the first "keeper" (relatively) I had from my first DSLR (Dynax 7D, 18-70 kit zoom at 23mm), a "portrait" of my grandmother. If only I had known that she only had two more months to live...





Here is something more "artsy" as I probably thought back then. Still not much. With quite a bit of stretch, this can be called "BIF".





And here's a couple shots from the first shoot among my DSLR archive that I feel should not be consigned to the Recycled Bin if I were to go through all these photos again HONESTLY. Judging by the file numbers, it only took me about 2400 photos (in a month or so) before I figured out I had to do something differently. Guess I was slightly livened up by the arrival of my first "proper" lens - one of the fabled Minolta Beercans. At least it gave me the first bit of control over the depth of field (having f/4 aperture) as seen in the second shot (at 75mm wide open).











I don't wanna show anything from my P&S times; I really was clueless back then.

This was my first ever PIF shot taken with a 30D and Bigma:

Picked up a D1 in 2003,but I still preferred to shoot film.I usually work and play in a salt water environment,so I generally didn't bring the D1 using it mostly for family shooting. I also had a few different digital P&S which I carried on the boats and derrick barges,but I usually had a few my old F3's,FM2n's or FE's on board as well.I jumped ship digitally from Nikon to Canon in 2008.I usually didn't take time to PP images back then and these were probably never PP'd.Some of these may have been P&S images.
