I am talking about a time that photographers who are least than thirty cannot know. In that time, digital photography is only an idea, photoshop is just a dream, and the magic place is called a darkroom. 36 frames in a roll, and most of them were not good enough to be worth the price of a print. No, film photography was no easy art school !
This image was made in 1991, with a Canon EOS 650, which was the first ever in the series. It had been offered to me by a “real” photographer who upgraded to the 630 (which was the second ever in the series). This image was among the first I took as I was starting photography, and since then the passion has never left me. Thank you to share with me these “great” souvenirs.

Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gizmos. Photography is about photographers. A camera didn’t make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel.
