About The Artist
So, when I was about ten years old, my dad made the mistake of handing me his 35mm camera. Its was an old Olympus OM-2P, the first model to include the Program feature, which was a nice thing to have when learning how to use the bloody thing. Since then its been an addiction of sorts, that crazy urge to seek out new sights and hear the shutter clatter away like a mad little fiend.
Digital has made life a bit easier, but the lack of heady chemicals filling the air and long nights bent over a table, focusing an enlarger, has been a bit of an adjustment. On the other hand, the ability to experiment and tweak each little detail is much easier these days, so its a worthwhile trade in the long run.
