I have also loved taking photos. When I was young my aunt had a toy camera that I played with so much she eventually gave to me. A few years later my parents got me a 110 film camera for Christmas. It was this photo that I took on a trip to New Zealand though that made me want to get more into photography. I took it with a simple point and shoot camera but there was something about it that I really liked. So when I got home I purchased my first DSLR and signed up for a photography class.
