I have been interested and involved in photography since my early teens after my father had taught me about film developing in a dark room at home. In those days it was black and white film, so taking the pictures and then developing the negative and film using chemicals to see your picture, didn’t allow much room for error. I did learn how to use this process to my advantage though, by experimenting with different emersions. I also learned how to play with the camera and have fun with it, using different settings to create different pictures.
I put photography on the “back-burner” for a few years, after which my interest returned with digital photography. It is fun again and I love it, and I am starting to experiment with it again like I did when I was 15 years old.
