I've been practicing photography since 1975 in a more serious vein. Most of my technical side was shaped up within a film or emulsion perspective.
I also had the good fortune to know or meet a few celebrated photographers such as the incredible Yousuf Karsh, who mentored me briefly by offering a brutally honest critique of my work as a young aspiring photographer.
My advice to anyone pursuing the art of photography is to start with the basic properties of photography and optical physics, not an owner's manual. Find me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/BenoitAubryPh…
