Today Bill Smith sits down with Amy Jasek, better known as Texas Girl Photography across the wide Internet World and is a regular contributor to the Film Shooter Collective. Amy and Bill talk about her inspiration from her father in the wide world of photography. Her first camera and the lessons he taught her on developing and printing in a darkroom. Even if it was only hanging out with her dad and growing up with photography, her passion for the craft came in her 20s. Also, the importance of dabbling and photographing what you love and are interested in photographing. The love of cameras, printing, and the frugal film project all come up throughout the episode.
