My own account.
age 9: started with a disposal camera in pr 3.
age 10: save hard ($60) to buy a point and shoot. mother pity me , top up $40 to get a better more decent PNS. The brand is Chinon, still have it but does not work anymore.
teenage year: shoot a lot of rubbish. kanna left right centre from relatives because all my travel pictures did not have me inside. had shots of beautiful tea plantation, monkey fuc#ing but no shots of myself.
was told it is a big waste of money to travel and have no pic to prove i was there. so.... during 1 trip to thailand, every shot i took had myself in it. (actually thats means i asked someone else to take for me)
borrow cousin PNS with ZOOM. (wah) Yearn for an SLR but could not afford it.
JC years: make money selling polariod shots to couples @ chjimes & boat quays. tried to sell to jap tourists but they carry nikon & canon with super zoom.
college years: camera fell into waterfall with owner (me). I survived, the camera did not. father tio "4D" sponser my Sony 505V. Sold it for a G2
now: ocassionally help out in studio. exposed to MF. Shot with my eos 33 now.
