    I am probably as old as Mike Brown is. I bought my first SLR when I was 26 and that camera was a Canon A-1, which uses film. I still use that camera. My interest in photography began in high school. My parents had a Polaroid Land Camera that I used to take some photos. They bought me a Polaroid Swinger camera to use.
    When I bought my A-1, I read photography books which included Ansel Adam’s books. I learned the exposure triangle. I even developed a program for the Hewlett-Packard HP67 calculator that incorporated the zone system with the exposure triangle.

    In general Mike offers simple, good advice. This is another good example.
