John Anzivino is our Photographer of the Month!
My interest in photography began at age 8 or 9 when I was given a Kodak Brownie camera for a Christmas gift. I took a great deal of Black and White photos in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. I became interested again in the late 1960’s through the decade of the 1970’s. I used several Minolta 35mm SLR’s including the SRT 101 and the Minolta XK. I focused on 35mm color slides, home processing thousands of Ektachrome slides using E-4 chemistry.
Many decades later, when I retired in 2015, I purchased an Olympus camera and began taking photos once again. Today I use the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III camera with a few common lenses including a macro lens as well as the standard 14-150 Kit Lens. Today I enjoy taking photos of landscapes, flowers and people, mostly my grandchildren.
What I enjoy most about my interest in photography today is my membership in the Pocono Photo Club. The people I’ve met there are friendly and helpful. The photography of the club’s members is inspired and inspiring, and I’ve learned a lot from everyone. I look forward to future photo shoot-out opportunities where I can find both old and new locations to photograph, while enjoying the company, and guidance, of fellow club members.
