BIOGRAPHY
I've been into photography since I was young, but it took me a long time to disabuse myself of the notion that the quality of the photograph is equal to the cost of the equipment used to take it. Because I can't really afford expensive equipment, I thought I couldn't take a good photograph. Now I realize that my photos stand or fall on their own merit, not the camera's. I also just accepted the fact that I will never really have enough time to do traditional darkroom work, so I am dedicating myself to learning digital darkroom techniques. I have recently upgraded to a digital SLR camera, which I hope will lead me to taking more photographs.
