I don't know why, but looking through a camera is a different reality for me. I have been shooting now for about ten years. I took some courses at a college which helped me out. I started with my Minolta x370, and still use it mainly. I also have a Pentax 67 and a digital Nikon coolpix. Black and white is my passion. I love the play of light and shadow. My favorite subject matter is women.
