I didn’t buy my first camera until I was in my twenties. It was a Bolsey Compact 35mm by Wollensak. Once I started with that, I was hooked. Now, more than twenty-five years later, I still love this art that is poetically called; ‘Painting With Light’. What makes it so special to me is that outside of the studio, photographers must work with what is offered; light, line, and subject as it is. The challenge of then applying knowledge, creative intuition and skill to create in a scene just the right balance and composition so as to please the eye, tell a story or make a point is addictive to me. The measure of success for a picture is in finding something new each time it is viewed.
