My interest if Photography started when I was very young and got my first point-and-shoot camera (which was pink and came with a pink teddy bear btw). I like the preservation that comes with taking photos. I have many items with sentimental value that I’ve photographed just in case I lose them like the photo of my chicken. My interest grew in high school when my Dad gave me my first SLR camera to use in my photography class. I’m very happy to have dark room experience from high school and college and to have shot an SLR with film. Shooting with film helped me become a better photographer. Every once in a while I will put down my camera for a bit but I always come back to it – and there it will be, waiting to go on new adventures.
