I have dabbled in photography at various levels for more years than I care to think. I started out with 35mm film and then moved to 6 x 4.5 cm for weddings. I ultimately quit altogether when it quit being fun.
We moved to Arizona and I got my first digital. It was fun again. I am still having fun. I don't do weddings or anything like that. I shoot what I want to shoot, not what someone else wants me to shoot.
