I'm a graphic designer with a background in photography. I was gifted a Nikon FG in the early 1980s and used it for decades. I purchased a Yashika on eBay after an inspiring weekend with a friend in southern California and used it for many years capturing, among other things, the daily activities of my first daughter, Julia. I developed my own film and printed in my own darkroom from 1984 until about 2002, when digital photography began to take over. I still own and use a Nikon digital SLR but often am content with what I can capture with my iPhone.
