    Hello ! I am getting reaquainted with photography after a long hiatus . It is providing some much needed relief from the CV-19 boredom of being sheltered.
    EOS 60D
    EF 70-210 f4
    Sigma AF 17-70 f2.8


    I want to sell these last 3 and get a Sigma 150-600
    EF 18-135
    EF 70-300
    Tamron AF 28-75

    I used to have AE-1 and A1 back in prehistoric times

    I have been shooting macro ( roses in backyard ) and hawks on the golf course we live at.

    Welcome to the forum, Bill. I have both the 60D and the AE1. both are nice cameras. I think you will find a lot of people are getting into film photography. The drawback is FD and FL canon lenses were dirt cheap once but now there costs have increased greatly.

    Welcome Bill. Lovely looking flower. It looks a little over exposed but good enough to repair in post. I've found that when photographing red flowers, the red channel usually clips at normal exposure, so the fix is to under expose. Another clue is some of the brighter reds showing a hint of magenta. Give it a try and see how it goes. Also shade the flower from the bright sun. Here's your flower after a Photoshop fix. I hope that's OK.

    Welcome, yes many are reaquinting during these troubling times. Besides my camera, I bought a pellet smoker and have gotten into using it.

    Personally, this sounds like a lot of hard work and what ever I cook is shoved on the BBQ.

    It's like getting a camera and only using 1 lens.

    Sometimes using one lens can be a good thing, it makes you stop and think about composition and helps produce better images.
