Long time lurker, first time poster

Hi I'm Rob from Cambridgeshire, UK. I first got into photography back in Secondary (High) School more than 15 years ago. Then the theft of all my gear, lack of finances and to some degree, motivation, left me floating P&S land, until this year when I bought my K10D.

My focus so far has mostly been on capturing my two gorgeous kids as I am still getting myself out of the P&S mindset. So until I figure out what I enjoy shooting expect to see a bit of everything. (Comments & Critiques welcome)

Welcome to the forums Rob!

Shooting children is a nice, highly motivated and fun way to learn to use the camera in various situations and conditions, and become familiar with the camera.

Nothing wrong with using your DSLR mainly to take drop-dead-gorgeous shots of your kids. Anything else is secondary.
