Photography is one of my favorite hobbies. I studied black and white photography some years ago at an art college, using a manual Minolta camera for my shots and developing my photographs in a darkroom. It was fun working in the darkroom, seeing the images emerge on paper and creating special effects with various equipment. But it was expensive, too. Now that I use a digital camera, a Canon Rebel XT, I appreciate the affordability that digital photography offers. And through my design work I’ve learned that Photoshop is the new darkroom, allowing me to creatively enhance the photography I use in my projects.
Here are some photographs I’ve taken within the last few years. You may recognize some of them…I’ve used a few in some of my blog posts!
