shooting photos has become more than a hobby. at this point it’s almost a lifestyle. i see myself revolving a good amount of my time around pursuing a passion of someday shooting for a living and hopefully seeing some new interesting places. recently i took a step back and realized i’ve lost a little bit of respect for the process of creating a photograph. so i decided to buy a canon a-1 and get back to the basics. it will be a refreshing change of pace and certainly a new challenge. i haven’t shot film in years, so reacquainting myself will be fun and slowing down a little is needed.
