Hi, my name is Mike Dausin. I'm a 29 year old guy living in the Greater Austin area, and I love to take pictures. I also love to travel, and photography is more than a half veiled excuse to get out of my house and explore.
I have a day job as a computer security dude, which means you wont seem me talking about work much on this site since the two subjects have very few crosspoints.
I've been shooting somewhat seriously for about a year and half now, and I have to say I am amazed at how much there is to learn about this hobby.
Oh, and before you ask I am not blind in one eye, except when I'm shooting!
I used to shoot with a Canon Digital Rebel (300d) and a handful of lenses. But after the demise of my wide angle, I made the switch to a Pentax K10D. Everything after 11/28 or so will likely be made with the Pentax, everything earlier; the Canon. I was very nervous about having to switch from Canon to Pentax, espically since it meant buying all new glass. But I'm glad I did. The K10 is superior to the canon 300d in every important way (which is saying a lot, since the 300d is itself a great camera.)
Here are some links to other peoples sites that I visit frequently:
