365 Project | 86

The 365 Project. A year of Archibald Photography in photographs.

March 27. To some, this was the greatest camera ever made.  I learned my trade with an FM2, took a massive amount of photographs with it across a lot of countries and developed the films at home. I still use the same disciplines of operating only manual settings on my digital cameras today. If photography students learn today on a camera like this, with film, when every shot costs money…it can only be a good starting point for caring about their images…

I had to trade in my original for a shinier camera when I began to make some money from photography. What a great surprise to receive this Christmas present from Donna…and only three months after christmas…
