When I was a child my father was always taking pictures. He had several cameras and lenses and a whole bag full of camera equipment. The photo to the right is one of the pictures taken by my father of me when I was three.
The high school I attended offered photography classes, so I signed up, and started taking pictures with my father's Canon AE-1 that he had purchased in the mid 1970's, which I still use today. I've managed to acquire most of his equipment and it all still works some 20-30 years later. All of these pictures were taken with the same camera my father used when I was a child.
One of the images below is a collage of several different photos that I created using Adobe Photoshop. Most of the black and white images I developed and printed myself, and the color photos were processed at a lab.
