As a photographer (an amateur one at that), I enjoy learning about the processes that are involved in capturing images and putting them onto film. While I enjoy digital photography as well, few things will be able to replace by SLR camera. As I’ve explored these processes, I have become curious about the way my camera works and how lenses themselves work. This especially became a subject I was most interested in when I broke the lens on my camera and wondered if I could learn about lens assembly and repair it myself! I have always been the type to try and do something on my own before paying to have it repaired. I was not expecting the intense amount of technical work that was involved in the assembly! Not one to balk at a challenge, I did as much research as I could as possible before getting into the guts of the thing.
