See here :)

I shoot Pentax bodies, primarily Sigma lenses (although I have many old school Pentax lenses), and use LR5 and Photoshop CS6

I have started to get into it. I'm a complete beginner and I don't practice or read as much as I should, but it's great fun.

I have a Canon crop body, kit lenses, and a 50 1.8. Slowly but surely, my photos are seeing progress. I want to get a fast wide-zoom lens.

We like takin' pictures! ;) Once in a while we even get a decent capture. My dad was interested in the hobby when I was a kid. He even built a bespoke darkroom in their house. I've probably been taking pictures for 35 or so years now. Used to do all of the B&W work for our high school year book - from the exposure to printing. Long nights before a dead line working with Dad - great memories.

He passed a few years ago so I got his cameras. One is a Canon EOS film camera with a 50/1.8 lens that I still use and a 70-210 I haven't touched in years. A great fun one is his old Koni-Omega Rapid M. It shoots 120 format - all manual. It has a 90mm/3.5 lens. It's cool with B&W but I like it most with Portra 160.

We have a Canon Rebel XT that both my wife and I use. Most of the time it has the old EOS 50/1.8 lens mounted but we also use our Canon 10-22 and Canon 100-400L from time to time. I'm an internet plumber by trade and as a result don't like spending non-work time on computers. Because of that I use Aperture for basic post processing work but don't do edits, per se. I suppose I'll have to get Lightroom at some point. :)

Saving my favorite for last - it's the Canon A-1 I used in high school. I have a 70-210 lens for it but it's almost always used with the 50/1.8 lens it came with. Normally use Ektar 100 for color work and TX-400 for B&W. It's my everyday carry camera and works great.

Here's one with the Rebel XT and 100-400L I took of Pikes Peak of the 2014 winter solstice sunrise. The north face of the summit was still in shadow but this east facing slope caught some great Colorado gold light. The blowing snow added a little glow which I really liked.

Touareg makes a great tool for getting to the shot. :)

oh, thanks god i thought i was the only one here :) thank you guys for reply, ill try to tell you my little story, since childhood i love taking pictures, my first camera was ZENIT ET (made in ussr) FD, it was difficult but very useful to learn measuring light and understand shutter speed and aperture settings, second camera was canon 300D DSLR, it was 1000 times bedder and easy to use, since than i love cannon and been cannon user ever since, then cannon rebel T1i, than cannon 5D mark II, but i sold it :( (money shortage ) now i have my rebel T1i (500D) with kit 18-55, Tamron SP 70-300mm, 50mm and some filters, I use to be a pro for little period of time but now mostly as a hobby, i like shooting everything Macro, portraits, landscape, architecture and light painting, I use adobe light room and never do major surgery to my photos. i can speak on and on but its better to post some of my work :)

We shoot with a Canon 5DmkII using all canon lenses: 50mm f1.2 prime, 24-70mm EF and a 70-200mm f2.0 EF stabilized. Used mostly for portraiture.

Finding the time to use the camera to shoot something other than kids these days? That's harder. I'll see if I can dig up a picture or two.
