My parents bought me a Minolta from a pawn shop almost 15 years ago and to this day it is my favorite gift. It introduced me to photography. I shoot anything and everything, but prefer portraits. As of July, 2007, my lensbaby 3G is new to me and I can't wait to experiment more with it. I now shoot with a Canon EOS3, I still prefer to use film. For now, this is my hobby, maybe one day I will turn it into my career.
