As strange as it may seem I was a baby too when I was born. That was also the moment I scored a perfect 10 – my Apgar score. Since then this has never happened again, being, just like birth and death, an unique movement.
In tune with this site’s profile it’s worth mentioning my seventh grade year when I bought my first camera, a Smena 8. Unlike today’s full frame cameras my Smena was fully manual. Along with my camera I received my first photography book: it fitted in my palm and it was my first and only photography mentor for a while. I went through exposure tables, ISO or ASA dilemmas, various distances and weather presets. I should also mention my UPA 510 enlargement machine, the developing tank and its developer and fixer bottles. One thing I’m embarrassed to reveal is how I got my first red light source. Don’t ask!
Unfortunately, during college I gave up photography despite the fact that I had access to rolls of film, I could afford to buy them and I could have developed them easily.
Filled with remorse I returned to photography in 2008, this time nurturing a mature love for this wonderful hobby. I don’t have the slightest clue where photography will take me in the future but you can check out what I have been doing up till now in the links below:
