Photography has become an obsession since I purchased my first digital camera about four years ago. Back in the days of film, I owned a Pentax 35mm camera which I used at a lot of family functions. It was because of the cost of film that I put my camera away. Purchasing my digital camera has changed everything. I thoroughly enjoy getting out to shoot. Just recently I attended my first Aperture Academy workshop, where I learned lots about nighttime photography and saw some beautiful scenery.
