When my parents gave me my first camera (an instamatic) forty years ago (age 9) they thought I would be using it to take pictures of friends and activities at summer camp. I took one picture of a friend, a tentmate, and one picture of an activity (a capsized sailboat). The rest was all landscape photography. Needless to say my parents were surprised, but also delighted and they encouraged me to pursue it. I had my own darkroom by age 16, studied photography at The Maine Photgraphic Workshops for two semesters in the Eighties. After my camera bag was stolen in 1990 with most of my "high tech." equipment in it, I fell back on my old agfa folder that my Dad gave me when I was 10. I've been exclusively using classic and antique cameras since that time. All my medium format cameras are folders, and I also have a 70 year old 5"x7" studio camera, and a 100 year old 8"x10" view camera.
