Hello all, my name is Kevin. I am a military brat and proud of it. Because of my fathers service, I have had the opportunity to travel the world and see things many people only get to read about in books. To date, I have visited 23 different countries, including some that are no longer there. I am also married and have three beautiful daughters.

I was first introduced to photography as a child. My grandmother was very interested in cameras, and had many different examples in her possession. When I was about ten, I was visiting with her for a few weeks and she brought
some of them out for me to play with. She
didn't have the money for film or developing, but she would look through the viewfinder with me and snap mental pictures of what she saw. She did have a few Polaroid cameras that she occasionally would run film through. I still have those...

My first camera was a Pentax Auto-110
Super. I had the entire kit, including the
rare flash. Man, I wish I still had it. My
first 35mm was a Canon Canonette. I also had a Canon T80 with all the trimmings and a Canon Rebel. Once digital started to produce some decent cameras, I fell on hard financial times. I
traded all of my camera gear for cash and a small point and shoot. I shot with it for about 5 years.

During that time, I would put a few dollars here, a $5 there, into an envelope under my mattress. When I started saving, DSLR's were just hitting the market and I knew I wanted one someday. Ten years later, the Nikon D7000 came to market
and I just knew it was the camera for me. It had all the features I thought I could want or need. Pulled out the envelope, and paid cash for the basic kit. It took me a year to really start using it.

Over Thanksgiving 2012, my aunt gave me her old Nikon FG. The body was no longerfunctional, but it had your basic 50mm f/1.8 attached to it. It sat in my cabinet until I stumbled onto the Manual Focus Nikon lens thread here at Fred
Miranda. After reading through the thread for a week, I decided to try and see if the lens would work on my D7000...what do you know? It does! AND it takes really nice pictures! What is that, old manual lenses are just as nice as newer
glass, yet cost a lot less?! I was hooked...
