My interest in photography has been life long. Age 7 I was gifted my first camera, a deep red 110 film using rectangle that provided me with hours of entertainment continually snapping photos of people and things around me. While they may not have always been the best photos - as I discovered when sorting through boxes of them when scanning old pictures became a thing, they started me on a journey which has led me to where I am now.
At 18 I got my first digital camera, and never looked back. While I loved the look and feel of film and printed photos, the fact that I could just experiment and not have to worry about the costs and waiting times for film developing let me be more confident to play rather than having to be 'careful' and save my film. Into my 20s I still experimented with 35mm film and was finally allowed to try my hand using my fathers long hidden away SLR. The joy of different lenses, of being able to better control what was in focus, of being able to take a closer photo without standing almost on top of what I was trying to shoot was a whole new wonderful world.
Cameras have come a long way in my lifetime, nowadays you can get amazing photos using a range of ever developing devices, and while I still love my trusty Nikon D80 (my first adult investment in a digital SLR) my current Nikon Z50 mirrorless camera is a blessing in its adaptability and changeable lenses without the weight of an SLR.
