I got interested in photography when I was in 5th grade and I was allowed to take home the school's Black and White enlarger, I hate to think how many years ago that was. My first camera was a Kodak Brownie. My first Canon was a AE1, I still have this camera and it still takes great shots. Today I have a Canon 5D and use Lightroom and Photoshop instead of dodging and burning in the dark room. I have lived in Colorado and on both coasts giving me many great photographic opportunities.
