I ventured back into photography in 2012 at 45, Had sold my film equipment prior to buying my house in 1998. So was taking pictures before that from 16 on SLR, 12 on with cheap 110. I learned to take pictures from books. Looked at details of peoples pictures they had included such as ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed, Focal length. Its the way I learned. Peace out. "My Life My eyes.” Oh I shoot RAW. Steal my work and I will proceed with legal action.
