Unless you're a late starter, many of us, myself included, started shooting as young kids, so it's impossible to know how or what changed. However, if I wasn't doing photography, I'd be doing something artistically similar--painting, drawing, acting, writing--so I'd probably be almost the same person. I fondly recall my beginnings with my father's old Zeiss camera and my Sears condenser enlarger. Seeing the prints appear in the trays was more fun than shooting after the exacting and long ritual of loading tanks, developing, washing, drying, etc. The PP is so much easier now I actually spend more time shooting than back in the day.
Incidentally, my first SLR--bought with paper route money--was a Miranda F (!).
