I have always loved photography. It’s in my blood since both parents were photography majors. I had access to their equipment as a teenager and loved developing my own photos. I also loved the results I got from their camera. Yes, I had a point and shoot as a kid but it didn’t give me the control a SLR did. Once I started with a real camera I haven’t really looked back.
As an adult I again got a cheap point and shoot digital, it was what was affordable. A couple years ago however I got a DSLR for Christmas and really haven’t looked back!
I don’t always have it with me sadly so my cell phone substitutes often while I’m on the road but
once in awhile I can grab my good camera and just shoot things.
