For years I have been passionately involved with various forms of photography. I have also followed various training courses for this.
Recently I retired but I am still active with photography as a hobby.
Although in photography the emphasis is often on the end result, the process preceding it is just as important to me. Being busy because they don't say "enjoy the climb because you're only at the top for a while".
Until recently I worked in analogue mode with my own darkroom. With older cameras of medium and large format, where the emphasis is more on the craft of photography where light measuring and focusing is still manual work, something that is slowly disappearing.
