About Westerberg


I got into photography while buying and selling cameras on eBay (user name: joewest2000). I enjoy test driving each camera that I sell and I've learned a lot from the old film SLRs. I had a lot of fun with my little Nikon Coolpix 2100 then a 3100... and finally... after seeing all the incredible shots on this site from digital SLRs I got a Nikon D80. After 4 years with the D80 I purchased a D3200. I also got a Coolpix P510 with an incredible 1000mm zoom. Amazing and fun camera, especially for the price. Lots of learning and practice and more practice. I have since upgraded to a Nikon D7200. And I've taken a couple great workshops including KAPOW - Kauai Photography Workshops on Kauai. If you're a photographer and you visit Kauai, check them out. I've added a link to their site.
