I began my adventures in photography with a Minolta 35mm SLR during the 1980s. I took a few b&w film classes during college summers, but otherwise I am self-taught. I am now facing the realization that film photography has many humbling similarities to golf. Not that I have ever felt a sense of mastery over either pastime. That is partially because being self-taught in photography, as with golf, leads to development of bad habits that are difficult to un-learn. Nevertheless I happily enjoy every new lesson learned. If I had to describe my keenest area of interest in photography, it would be the urban landscape.
Like many, I have had an extended flirtation with digital photography. However, I have surprised myself by finding that I prefer the delayed gratification (and often heartache) that comes with film photography.
In my real life, I work as a public policy adviser. . .
