I had point & shoots before, but it wasn't until my 350D that I more seriously got into photography - that was in early 2006. I joined Potn in August of 2006 and asked a lot of questions (mostly about gear), looked at a lot of examples, and improved myself as much as I could each time I visited.
I've also tried to help where I can also, and join in on interesting discussion.
And several bodies and lenses later (7D and EF17-40!), I was just reminiscing about when I initially got bitten by the photobug, and looking back, I feel I've improved greatly!

Anyway, thanks to everyone here for just being a great crowd!
Please share how far you've come!
