    Sorry I posted the gist of this in another thread by mistake

    Anyway hi,

    I'm Lesley from Bow- was into photography as a kid since my dad was before I was 10 I could develop and print films. Had a 110 for pottering round with in my teens and 20's then apart from occasionally borrowing the other (never better) half's compacts I just didn't do much of it but I kept wanting to so last year I took a small plunge and got a Coolpix S3000, which has since been taken loads of places and I got some good results on but I started to become aware of its limitations and a couple of months back I took a much bigger plunge andgot a D3100 DSLR- which now means I am aware of my limitations! I've since added a longer lens and a speed light, the latter has so far blinded the other (never better) half.

    I take loads of photos of my cats (especially as we just have a new kitten) and shots of local bands and various other odds and ends. Ive managed to get a photographers pass for a gig in October (friends of the band) so I had better work out how to operate the camera properly!

    I live in Bow- it went on all around us but apart from a lot of local shops closing early it didn't touch us, we don't have any local shops selling tellies or trainers etc I was half thinking if it did kick off a couple of good shots sold to the papers might pay for the camera:)
