I started out very young with my trusty "Brownie". As I got older, my father saw that my interest hadn't faded so he gave me his Argus C3 and a light meter and said go have fun. I did! I finally got an SLR and learned to load and develop my own B&W film. B & W is still my passion.
Eventually, I made the switch to digital after several film SLR's (which I still use). Digital has opened a whole new world of making photographs. I am still having fun after all these years.
