Okay, maybe “photo boss” is a bit much, but it sure sounds intense, and in the right kind of way… ;P
Anyway, so I did the senior portraits for someone the other week – remember that?
(Maybe not, but let’s continue as though you do.)
Using the money from that, I invested in a new lens I’d wanted for a while (which has a high likelihood of earning me menu for a certain kind of photography rather soon, consistently), and in a second memory card that will be extremely useful as I do more and more photo sessions, and in an external hard drive exclusively for photos (since they take up loads of space, now that I’m doing the RAW files and all).
And – possibly the best part – I still have a bit of the money to spare, even after buying myself a huge tank of gas for the truck (the vehicle a family friend has lent me, so that I can go longer distances reliably, instead of only short distances, and unreliable so).
Isn’t that great?
Of course, the photos turned out totally awesome – I’m super proud!
So, yeah… I’m really happy about these steps I’m taking.
It really makes a difference to declare that I am doing this. 🙂
