I've started my business in Reading in 1975 though I processed my first b&w film when I was 12 in 1961. That's 51 years ago and I still love photography. In the early 70's I use to push process trannies to 1000 asa to use in low light conditions. Now my D700 & D800 are just amazing at doing what I could only dream of in those days. As a professional the use of flash in the studio or location has always been my strong point, but actually I always wanted to use continuous lights so I could really record what I could see. I can hardly believe how digital has opened up this possibility and the colour handling properties make natural light shooting on location a real joy. No more magenta filters to overcome fluorescent light casts. If you understand what I've just written you will appreciate how much I welcome the drop in weight of equipment needed to work on location as well!
Have a great life,
