And now, I am enjoying the little bit of Summer that I have free. I just finished another Summer semester yesterday and have a little free time, about a month of no homework or lectures. I'd like to say that I'm going to be doing a lot during this time, but honesty, I'm probably going to sit on my ass. I have been in a lot of pain patly and haven't been feeling like doing much when I have free time. I am going to try to get a couple hikes in, a baseball game or two (GO A's!) and spend some more time with Bucko. My poor dog has been completely neglected since I found out we were breeding. Bucko has been utterly amazing and patient, and we are lucky to have such a sweet doggie.
The awesome thing about having photography be a part of my job is that I get to use my camera more and practice shooting. It's actually motivating me to shoot on my free time. I got a few shots in this weekend of my Dad's house, and I was really excited about editing them. I know they're just house shots, but I am really stoked about them. More HERE
I have decided to upgrade to a full-frame camera soon. It's an exciting thing, even if it's a little scary to spend so much on something. I feel like an idiot spending over $3,000 on a camera body (thats not including lenses, people), but I am trying to justify it as well. My current camera has paid for itself with the jobs I've gotten with it and if I actually put more effort into booking shoots, I can pay off the new camera quickly. And dammit, I'm good. I enjoy taking photos and it's the only hobby that I've actually stuck with, for years and years. I have to remember to allow myself to buy things that make me happy, if it's something that I will actually use. Isn't it beautiful? It's really a dream, and it feels good to finally have gotten to a place where I can afford to buy myself something so amazing.
Alright. Time for bed. Hopefully I will dream about the Nikon D800.
