It was back in 2002 in my last year in High School where in a a unit of a Media English Course at EC Drury that we did a unit on Photography, this of course wasn't my first experience with Photography, I had been for a few years been shooting with my parent's pocket point & shoot 35mm cameras, but this unit really introduced me to photography, using Single Lens Reflex cameras, and darkroom developing. However the projects we did were all shot using a point & shoot, until I picked up an old Minolta Hi-Matic 7s rangefinder at a Garage Sale. That little rangefinder served me well until a couple years later when a Minolta SRT-102 SLR was found at a Garage Sale. I was pretty much shooting as much as I could! By 2005 I had picked up my first digital camera and went pretty much digital for the next couple years, only occasionally picking up a film camera.
Film returned in a big way a couple years back now, starting with a Nikon F80, and then diving into Medium Format photography, and of course the wonder that is Instant Photography. Today I shoot mostly film for fun with digital for professional work (and I use film for those jobs also).
