Some of you should remember me anyways... I think..

Let's see, not sure when the last time I visited was, but I can tell you it was a while ago. Let's see, I'm now a 19D in the Michigan Army National Guard. Got out of OSUT 21 Sep 2006, so not long ago. About three days prior to going down to Ft. Knox, I got my pilots license.

As for the future, in the spring I'll be going to Central Michigan University for Business Admin.

I've also done some random photography here and there as well. You can see that at Flickr: Photos from Sinister Angel (http://www.flickr.com/photos/jgillman)

Uhh, other than that... hi!

Thanks for the look! When the army finally gets around to getting me my bonus cash, I'm looking to buy a Canon 30D with some assorted glass and other goodies for it.

You got any of your stuff on the net?

I can't knock the 300D at all. Actually, right now I only have a Sony Mavica that writes to CDs. Not a bad camera, I've just kind of outgrown it since getting it for my birthday in 2005 (that's when I really started getting into photography). The shots from my orlando trip were actually taken using my buddies Digital Rebel. In terms of lenses, I love the 50mm f/1.8 II. Sharp as a tack!

I have a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L I got it from a friends Mom who's husband left her and forgot a bunch of photography equipment. Its like a 2500 dollar telephoto zoom lense. It is amazing. I use it the most probably. That or my fisheye...thats always fun.

I'm looking at possibly getting the SIGMA 50-500mm f/4-6.4
That will of course set me back about a grand in itself heh. You can't beat a good sharp prime like the 50mm I was talking about though.

I moved here in early 2001, it just got so cold up there, and there were other reasons I had to get out of Michigan. I still miss it though, every summer I say I'll go back to visit, but I never make it.
