As a teenager in early 70’s, I received a Kodak Retna 3c from my
me how the camera worked and explained shutter speed, aperture, how
focus and how to put film in the camera. One warm day after school, I
some watermelon and on my second piece. I thought about how cool
would look if I took a photo of my pet parakeet (Walter) eating the
took Walter out to our enclosed patio and grabbed my new camera.
I placed him on the watermelon and he flew away, again and again. I finally placed some birdseed inside the watermelon and this was the result. This was on my first roll of film ever.
I look back and not only am I surprised how well it turned out, but this was my first lesson in problem solving and patience that has stayed with me throughout my career.
