How the winning photo of the "Lights" contest was made
By Outlander in Photo Contests on Feb 10, 2019
First of all I congratulate all December photo competition contestants. Job well done!
Thank you to all who have chosen this Photo, nominations and votes along with the many kind comments. The members of this forum are fantastic. I have learned many things since joining PentaxForums in 2016 and I am still learning.
My Introduction to Photography
I received my first introduction into photography while attending a 3 year Audio Visual program while attending High School. We where taught not just still photography but video and audio production as well, this was back when super 8 film was over taken by Beta Max, not long after VHS. It took two students to carry that dam video equipment around.
