Got into photography by accident in 1971 when I was 10 years old, got my 1st camera that xmas of 71, a Kodak insta
matic 44 (a 126 camera), between late 71 until early 1976 didn't show much intrest for photography until I got a keystone 110 pocket camera for xmas 75, January 76 I took off with it & never looked back, I photographed my middle school people from jan 76 to june 77 when I graduated
when I got to high school in fall off 77 I shot with several different 110 cameras during my tour of duty at Westchester from 77 to 80, & shot a lot of my classmates, I got 3 shoeboxes full for those 3 years in high school.

The 80's was good to me in photography & hit the ground running on what I had, when the 90's came only a few cameras came to my lap, mostly point & shoots, but the did the job fairly for me in the 90's, in april 1998 I started attending church thanks to a close friend of mine, & are still close to this day, anyway I've been the unofficial church photographer at my same since that april day in 98 & shot over 10,000 images at that church.
The 21st century rolled around & so did the digital camera age, & I got my 1st taste of a digital camera in the summer of 2003, a Sony cybershot spy like camera, cute but disappointing, the megapixaels were a joke, & stopped using it afterwards, December 07 I got a Nikon Coolpix 11, it was good but limited in features, in November 2008 I got another Nikon Coolpix L16, a little better than the L11, but it too had poor flash range, no CMOS system, & grainy shots indoors & night shots, & jack squat megapixels.
January 2013 it changed when it got a Canon Powershot 150 camera, & it was very good but but super, but it did the job, mainly at night & indoor shots, 6 months ago I got a bridge camera a Canon Powershot SX50, along with a Sunpack A3000 flash, & it really does the job for me when i'm shooting my pastor or choir singing,my next camera will be a D.S.L.R, a Nikon I can tell you that Website: not set
