Hi from Edinburgh

Hello, thought it was about time I joined as I've been lurking for while.

I'm Fraser and I live and work in Edinburgh. I got back into photography around a couple of years ago, and decided to go digital. Was using some OM series cameras and lenses. went digital with a used E410 kit. Have recently bought an E620 and have been getting to know it. Primarily shooting landscapes / city scapes, but have been doing a bit of wildlife stuff as well.

Might also be getting involved with Youth Football Scotland to do some sports photogarpahy (football), I'll know more about that after their open evening in late July. If I get involved with the sports stuff will probably be looking for a quicker zoom lens - a 50 - 200 mm would be someting I'd be interested in.

Bit of a long hello, so will stop there.

Thanks
Fraser

Re: Hi from Edinburgh

A warm welcome Fraser.

As you probably know from your "lurking" we're a friendly group and you'll always find folks happy to share their knowledge and experience with all things Olympus and photography in general.

Regards.
