my OM-1

I was thinking about the first pictures I took with my first manual 35mm camera, an old Olympus OM1, given to me by my step-dad.

I have had this camera since I was 15 years old, that's 18 years now. Over the years I would pull it out and each time I would call my dad and ask him about aperture and shutter speed. I loved the magic of trying to make a picture.

This is from the first roll of film I shot it's a photo of my high school friend Matt Kirscht.
He's a brilliant & successful self-taught painter.
