My passion for photography was born when my father came home with a store-bought DIY Home B&W Developer Kit when I was ten years old. His camera was an old Kodak box camera that utilized 120 film, which he would develop and make contact prints. I still have the black plastic developer tank and the small 7.5 watt red safety light. After learning how to use the equipment, I was off and running.
Today, my gear is a a little more sophisticated, and includes a full-frame sensor mirrorless Sony A7RM2.
