    Your macro photos are really good.

    I love taking macro photos, the problem comes in when I realize I'm just not very good at it...

    Nice work.

    Thanks, well I don't have a macro lens so I suppose its just patience and practice. I've only got my 20mm prime (40mm eqv.) I don't know if I'll get a new lens anytime soon (I'm a student).

    Nice work

    You're doing some good work with that GF1. It's a great camera for its size. In fact, I up and sold all my Canon gear (including a 5D) about a month after I got the GF1 when I realized it performed about 90% as well as the 3x more bulky 5D.

    Thanks, thats interesting to hear. I often feel I was too quick to buy it as my first camera especially with the prime as there is no zoom function and the smaller sensor means noise appears quicker etc etc :p. Sometime I feel a DSLR with larger sensor and better ISO would help :/.

    However, I will say that these limits have made me have to think more/be more creative. Also to be perfectly honest I still feel uneasy taking it out, not in a someone will steal it way, but just a people are looking at me as I take shots. I'm slowly getting over that and the camera being the size it is definitely helps me feel like I stand out less :eek:

    When I started in digital photography, I got a Sony DSC-S70. It had almost no features, but I took some great photos with it. I look back at some of my old photos and it was amazing the quality of photos that were coming out of such a basic (albeit $800) camera.

    It's less about the camera and more about how you use it.

    Agreed :), though it is nice to know you have more freedom with a better camera :p

    Hey, thanks.

    How long have I been doing photography?

    Well with semi-serious intent only the last year which is how long i've had my GF1. But before then, I've always had an interest and took lots of photos with anything I could, getting used to changing perspectives and framing etc. At high school I did a photography class during activities week, we got to develop our own film which was quite fun.
