Simple thread really. Just say when you took up photography, why you took it up, what camera you started with, and what camera you have now. I started January 2013. My Dad bought a 400D in 2007 but it didn't get used so one day I just decided to pick it up and start using it. Since then, I have bought a 50mm 'nifty fifty' and Aperture 3 and I'm saving up for my first L lens and eventually hope to go FF. Be as detailed or as brief as you like - I just thought it would be nice to hear the different stories people have.
