I first learned to take photographs for a hobby in my mid teens using a Praktica 35mm film SLR fully manual, no light meter or automatic tools built in. A teacher at school used to give up his free time to run a camera club & would ferry 6 of us to destinations to take photos & taught us how to develop our B&W films, fixing exposure issues & masking, burning, etc…

However guitars and playing in bands happened & photography fell by the wayside. Having been gifted a second hand Canon EOS 70D this year it was time to get snapping again!
