Although a few of the my readers, yeah I had to start like this, already noticed it, I started taking pictures again. I sold my old gear, bought some new stuff, sent some of the new stuff back for calibration and took tons of pictures in the meantime. I really enjoy taking pictures now although I have a hard time getting the geek in me out of the picture. You know, is the exposure correct, what ASA/ISO should I use, damn the framing is off, is my camera frontfocusing, etc etc etc.
