It has been said that photography begins more with the camera than the photo, to play with the controls and knobs, but at some point becomes more the final result, the photo itself, than anything else. I began with yes a Argus C3 that belonged to my stepfather. It was fun to change the controls and turn the knobs to see what would be the end result in the photo. As time passed the camera became only the means to the end, and the passion became the photo, the image now on paper to show what inspired me to take the photo in the first place. I have taken pictures most of my life, unfortunately not with the same passion I have for the past ten years or so. We do not think about it when we are younger, but life is so short. We rush through life to go where? Most do not take the time to look around and see the beauty or oddity that is before them or sometimes behind them. That same passion goes into every photograph, whether it be a wedding, event, portrait or fine art. You must always be proud of the end result.
