My name is Courtney, and I'm 22 years old. I live in Central Florida, but am planning to head north towards the end of the year. I completely blame my father for my love of photography. He would wake me out of bed at night and hustle me into the driveway. In the drive, was his telescope perched up on the tripod with his old Canon meticulously attached to the underside. We would sit out and take pictures of the moon and its craters; always in Black & White. We'd have the film processed and develop the prints by hand so I could show them off to my mother that week. I always looked forward to those weekends twice a month with my father; he and my step-mother have always been supportive my habit. My father even later gave me his Canon A2 E, and I dragged that thing everywhere for a good 5 years. Considering I was only 13, he was a brave man. Now I shoot with a Canon Rebel XTi, and drag this thing everywhere! Read more.
