Indianapolis Photographer | How I Became a Photographer

    This is awesome! My first camera is right next door, in the hands of an amazing 16 year old with a natural eye for composition. Loved this πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

      Allison, that’s a truly beautiful story! I love how you’ve passed on your camera… and likely supported the next generation of photographers!ReplyCancel

    This is great! My first camera I “bought” myself from saving up stamps in the little booklet at the grocery store…I was 9…it was hot pink plastic and surprisingly lasted me through high school. It’s somewhere on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico after a night out on our Senior trip. Those images are probably best left unseen πŸ˜‰ReplyCancel

    Oh this is such a sweet blog post! Loved reading it and learning about your journey. I swear, photography must be in the blood! Funny how we creatives follow similar paths (even if we don’t know it!)ReplyCancel

    That’s so awesome! Would love to see the winning photo! My very 1st film slr (canon ae-1) which was given to me by my dad (who died 16 yrs ago) recently made its way back to me! I gave it to my teenaged niece like 15 years ago! My 1st dslr was gifted to a girl in Sweden!ReplyCancel
