Hobbyist photographer back in the '70s and '80s. Took my first photo when I was five years old, got an SLR when I was ten. (Film, all manual, handheld light meter, we had a darkroom in the basement.)
Shelved the hobby for a couple of decades. Returned recently, this time with digital equipment.

Jack of many trades (and master of none), but I have a professional background in software development.
