Vlog: Where It All Started

11Where It All Started

In the first of my new series of Vlogs, I discuss how I got into photography at a young age. From developing my first rolls of film to the joining the local camera club, I talk about the fundamentals of where it all started for me.

“I was 13 years old and it was my birthday. My stepfather gave me a Zenit EM, and he had this magical way of describing how it worked. Back in those days (it was 1983) on the Zenit EM you had this needle that you moved; depending on where the light was you would pull this bar across the needle and you would lock the bar over it, and that would then set your relationship between your aperture and shutter. And he described it and I got it! It was something I just got.”
