Who taught you what you know about photography? A family member? Teacher? Friend? Tell us how you learned and who you learned from. My friend John taught me how to expose, develop, and print. Initially, he kept it basic. But as I learned more, he went into the more technical aspects of it. He recommended an AE1 as my first 35mm. He showed me how to use my first MF camera, a late 50's Yashica TLR.(the guy seems to have memorized the manual for every camera ever made.) When I got my RB67, I knew how to use it because he let me use his already. He got me going with my 4X5. When I think back on the hours I spent shooting with John or in his darkroom, talking, listening to music, and learning, I realize how lucky I am to have such a good friend and teacher.
