I am Tom Upton, owner of Tom Upton Studio and creator of PhotoTrainer. I warmed to photography early in life, In the sixth grade when the science teacher, showed us that rolls of film in our Kodaks held secrets. Chemistry, and kid-kitchen skills were all summoned like spirits to conjure the magic of illusion from these fascinating scrolls. In yellow light images appeared on paper immersed in trays of liquids. It was Magic.
