My interest in photography started in elementary school when I was about 12 years old.That is a long time ago with film and mostly black and whites.
From 1995 to 2005 I used both film and digital cameras. Today I never use film anymore, even if I have a collection of still working film cameras. The oldest is from 1916 and was my grandgrandfathers. The newest is my Minolta Dynax 7000i from 1990.
The way photography is today is really fantastic. Just say Photoshop, Lightroom, HDR, stacking, tilt shift, full frame sensors, panorama technique and so on. I do not miss all chemicals and all waiting to see how your pictures turned out.
Today I use a Nikon and an Iphone for my photografy experiences.
