female (34) from Esslingen am Neckar, Germany

My beloved dad showed me how wonderful and how much fun photography can be. He told me the basics of lighting, lenses etc. and - which to my mind is the most important skill - to "feel" the situation and look for views which might be different whether it is closer, further, upside down, flipped etc. We used to walk around and look for possible objects. I had a Agfa pocket which was great when I was a child - almost unbreakable ;-) The time waiting for the results of the photo tours was sometimes hard - but exciting. We did not just pick up the pictures and put them into folders - but we talked about them. What was good about it, what one liked about it. This discourse was great and I really enjoyed it. I admired him for having his Nikon FG20 in the 1980s - and was proud to be allowed to use it when I was old enough and even take it with me for different travels. It still exists - and I hold it very dear in remembrance of my dad. And analogue photography still is very special to me - the feel, the look, the smell, the time and deceleration ... I simply love it. show more show less
