United States
I was born on the twentieth of September, 1993. In San Diego, California. I lived there for 10 years until later moving to Hawai'i as a result of my father's final military stationing. It was in Hawai'i, high-school in particular that I really took an interest in graphic arts as a result of taking part in the Arts & Communications Academy of my School (Searider Productions). Though I suppose illustration and art were always a part of me, thanks to my Dad, who got me into reading and never failed to amaze me with his drawings.
The new college semester has begun and I was lucky enough to get the absolute last open slot in "Introduction to Photography." My teacher is one, Kapulani Landgraf. So far she's been an absolute treat to be taught by. The initial weeks of the class involved learning about the history of the camera, and how it came to be. As well as basic camera controls and the film development process.

I recently acquired a Nikon F4, you can find the picture of it in my gallery. The heft of the camera is welcome, I personally favor heavier equipment, it feels more secure and safe from come what may. That set up is but one lens, the Nikon Nikkor 50mm 1.8D, luckily it was of the time when an integral motor was incorporated into the camera, so that is a definite upside despite the age of the camera. I deduced that my specific model was manufactured in 1992. (A formula where you take the start of production, in this case Sept 1988, and the starting serial no. which for the F4 was 2100000. You subtract 2100000 from your current serial no. and divide by 5000, which was how many they produced approximately each month. The answer you come to is the amount of months from initial production your camera was manufactured)

Addictive attitude... In receiving the F4, the amount of research I have done, I have learned more about Nikon than I ever thought to know.

Our first roll of film is due by Tuesday, we begin development then. First assignment was to find 4 stationary objects to take pictures of and bracket to +/-4, A total of 9 pictures. I'm excited and nervous about my first development.

I find it very amusing that pretty much all of your comments here involve people thanking you for adding their work in your favorites list. So, I'll try to comment something different.

First of all, I can see that you are a very promising photographer. Indefinitely, you seem to have a very keen eye towards photography, so I could hope that you might plan on being a professional photographer. I'm not really a photographer, myself, but I always appreciate and admire those who can find and photograph the beauty of things that we often take for granted....such as yourself. It is my sincere hope to see more photos from you and to see your number of watchers drastically increase over time.

Keep improving and submitting your wonderful photographs.

-From your new watcher!
