My interest in photography began as a child. My father was a semi-professional photographer in the 1920s who used glass plates (I have some of his glass plates of early Colorado vacation spots) and formulated his own developers etc (I still have his hand written notes). However, my earliest remembrance is his using a Kodak Signature (120 I think) (billows extension) camera.
I began photography as a child with a Kodak 620 Brownie Box Camera, graduated to an Argus 35mm (slides extensively), a Mamiya Twin Lens Reflex at which time I had a complete darkroom, a Contax 35 mm with a 50mm Zeiss Lens and telephoto lens, and a Pentax 35mm compact for convenience.
I now enjoy using a Nikon Coolpix 4500 with which I am still becoming acquainted.
