I took a photography class in High School and the first thing my professor did was have us get a Diana medium format camera. The Diana was an all plastic camera that removed all the dials buttons and settings that confused the taking of a photograph. Much like the brownie camera that brought photography to the average person in the early 1900's or more recent the iPhone after 2008. The goal was to teach that it's not the equipment that makes the photograph.
While viewing Ansel Adams photos on exhibit in Indianapolis my friend realized my dream by signing me up to take Classes in Yosemite with Alan Ross.
