At the age of 10 my father gave me a digital camera for my birthday. Since then I started playing with photography. At first, I used to print pictures and put them in a photo book. Later iPhone substituted cameras and Instagram boom all moved all shots online.

In 2018 I got my first film camera - Canon AF35ML. Released in 1983, it was Canon’s first autofocus 35mm lens camera. It kept me company during couple of memorable trips.

In the first pandemic year, my sister gave me a fully manual film camera - Minolta x300. I’ve started learning ins and outs of manual photography. After a few of YouTube tutorials and a bunch of ruined films, I started getting picturesque results.
