I grew up thinking of how magical photography was and is. One can press a button and capture that moment instantly. Of course, when I was young, everything was on film. Nothing digital. I got my first camera when I was eight years old, and from there, I was hooked. In 1978, I bought my first SLR camera. It was amazing to feel the shutter react when the button was pressed. Even though, you still had to wait to get the prints or develop the film yourself, which I did. But now with digital, it's instant gratification! I am still amazed at what the possibilities are.
