1997-2000 Photo Galleries

My Early Work
Summary
I began my amateur photography hobby in 1997 when I was a freshman in high school. That year, I took the introductory photo class at my school and fell in love with photography. This is a collection of my favorite pictures from 1997 to 2000, all taken with an old-school SLR film camera.

1997-1998 Black & White Gallery [Low Bandwidth]

*Photo I*, the class I took as a high school freshman, introduced me to the world of photography. During that class, I used an all-manual Vivitar v 3300 SE camera with a 50mm f1.7 lens to take pictures of various subjects and turn them in as projects. Well, this is it, folks. Everybody has to start somewhere. This is where it all started for me! Enter the gallery and have a look!

1998 Color Gallery [Low Bandwidth]

These are the pictures I took with my Canon Rebel G and A2E cameras during 1998. For these pictures, I mainly used Kirkland Brand film which I bought from Costco. It's dirt cheap, fairly reliable, and produces good enough results for amateur use.

1999 - 2000 Color Gallery [Low Bandwidth]

These are the pictures I took with my Canon A2E camera during 1999 and 2000. Hopefully, my photographic skill has matured somewhat throughout these past few years.
