My first experience with photography was 20 years ago when my sister and I would get out our Girl Scout gear (patches, books and all), make quasi studio setups on the deck in the backyard and snap away with our tiny 110 camera.  We had so much fun arranging props and giggling commands from behind the viewfinder, never realizing we were dancing on the edge of something I’d go into later in life.  Luckily, my photographic whims and abilities have changed quite a bit since then, but I continue doing photography today for the same reason I did then:  I enjoy it.  I work with both black & white and color films to create fine art with small and medium format cameras, especially toy and vintage cameras.
