    Wanted to see if anyone is brave enough to post a photo from when you started photography and a photo of how you've progressed lol we all start somewhere! I don't have any shots that I've taken from the beginning with my camera to now, on my phone (which is where I post from) so I'll just post my iPhone shots. image.jpeg image.jpeg

    Was the first one accidental? Or did you mean to get the shot? It looks awesome!

    I meant to take it. Heck, instant film was expensive, even back then!

    I feel like such a Young'un in comparison.
    I've only really been shooting for 10 years.

    Hmm, I think I still might have the very first roll of film that I took with my first SLR camera (Canon T-70) ... it was a depth of field test with some objects I found in my room ... I think 1984. Sadly my photos from the 70's are long gone.

    Thinking back on it now, I was the most creative when I started than I am now ... I become more critical, or narrow minded as I've progressed.

    That second shot is really good. It has like a book scene feel to it

    1976 salmon Columbia River.jpg

    I took this photo of my dad, my brother, and my grandfather in 1976, with my back jammed as far forward toward the bow end of the wooden Pacific City style double-ender Chinook Princess as I could get. We were salmon fishing on the Columbia River, August, 1976. I shot just one roll of 12 exposures on Verichrome Pan with a 1958 cheapie camera, a Super Ricohflex twin-lens. I kept the undeveloiped 120 roll film deep frozen until the mid-1980's; I kept the negatives stored from 1985 to 2013 in my dresser drawer, until this scan was made in 2013, at age 50. My grandad is showing my brother how to navigate the mighty Columbia's shipping channel using the on-shore markers. My brother STILL owns that Australian bush hat which he got that very year!

    In the current era, I have tens of thousands of digital images...here's one I shot recently, also a black and white...high school senior, in his living room, with his now tattered Live Strong bracelet still proudly being worn on his wrist a full six years after it was given to him, posing with his beloved saxophone.
