I have always loved photography. I get it from both my parents - dad loves the technical aspect of photography and has been doing it since he was in high school, and mom never fails to capture a special moment on our Nikon D80. When I was still living at home, I was dubbed the "official photographer" on family vacation. I loved it.
But, when I went off to college in Chicago, the camera stayed in Frydlant. For that whole year I didn't have many opportunities to develop my photography skills or even take many pictures.
As my internship in Croatia neared, I knew I needed a creative project to help me relax in the midst of the busy and demanding schedule. Photography was an obvious choice, as it could accompany me wherever I go! However, the family digital SLR camera was still to stay at home.
Then I remembered - my dad's old film SLR camera! It is a Pentax with all manual controls (focus, aperture etc.). I was a little intimidated in the beginning, but have been enjoying it so much after I figured everything out. I'd like to share some of my favorite pieces (so far) with you! Enjoy!
I just love the feel that film has. And the colors! I have been very impressed. Digital has still not been able to match up to good 'ol film. I've been learning so much from going back to how it all started!
