“I am talking about 30 years ago. We had a camera in the studio, the ‘Canon AV-1’ that had only one shutter speed, which was 60. Along with that, even its light meter did not work. But I was so used to it that my photos would tun out well. In the beginning of my work, I photographed a couple’s wedding, 20 years later, that couple’s son got married and I photographed them as well. And when their child went to school, they brought him here and I photographed him. I have lost many great events as a photographer that I have not captured. The good events are like a beautiful girl, who you like but do not ask out. Soon she will be engaged to another and you cannot reach her. If you find a good topic, you cannot be indecisive and should capture it, even if you are not entirely successful, at least you gain experience.”
