Photography has been a passion for me since I was in high school. I went from 110 cameras to borrowing (and never returning!) my father's Canon AE-1 in college. I resisted digital for a long time - as a film purist, I tend to want to get my shots perfect (or as close as it comes) in-camera rather than relying on Photoshop after the fact. I started out taking pictures at the local bar when I was in college and found I had an eye for shooting band photos. It's my favorite to shoot, I admit, but anytime I get to take out my camera and play is a good day.
