Photography is one of my favorite hobbies. I studied black and white photography some years ago at an art college, using a manual Minolta camera for my shots and developing my photographs in a darkroom. It was fun working in the darkroom, seeing the images emerge on paper and creating special effects with various equipment. But it was expensive, too. Now I appreciate the affordability that digital photography offers, with Photoshop as the new darkroom. Here are some photographs I’ve taken that you may recognize…I’ve used a few in some of my posts!
