I never intended to become a photographer, as I felt I had enough hobbies to keep me occupied. But, I have always had an interest in video. In 2013 I was asked to video a wedding and I decided to try raising the bar above the standard camcorder quality. Since we owned a Canon DSLR, and I had read it shot exceptional video, I decided to try it out. Through that process I ended up learning how to shoot a DSLR in manual mode and what it takes to make a "good" picture.
If you're interested in the topic there are countless web sites and YouTube videos that will teach you much of what you need to know, but suffice it to say, in the process I learned that using vintage lenses on new cameras is a popular trick for a vintage look and smooth focusing in video. Naturally, when you collect vintage lenses you end up with vintage cameras, and if you're like me, you eventually want to try shooting some film through them.
