Thanks, Emily! I want to... it's just hard to find a day that isn't freezing cold and I barely get days like that off anymore. :( We need to go out shooting soon.

Saving for a 5D Mark III

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 23, 2014, 9:45 PM
Yeah, I've been saving some money (well, trying to) for about two weeks now, I guess? I used to buy breakfast & coffee  like 6 out of 7 days a week, then I'd go out to eat with friends or get food for myself like 3-4 times a week besides the breakfast and.... yeah, I was spending way too much money unnecessarily, haha. I've gotten MUCH better, but I'm not perfect. But the Mark III has really inspired me to save because it looks like a really worthy camera to own. I've read/watched so many reviews, seen sample images, read specs, and all that good stuff. Looks like the camera for me. It was going to be the Mark II, but the auto-focusing system on the Mark III was a big selling point for me. Plus the great low-lighting use I can get out of it sounds really fantastic.

Obviously a new camera body won't make my pictures 100x better or whatever, but it will certainly help. Along with some new glass and perhaps a strobe/softbox for portraits and a ring flash for nature, maybe. Depends who loves me this Christmas. ;P Just kidding, kind of.

Anyway, I set up a donation fund for my friends and family to donate to on GoFundMe.com where they can donate in exchange for a photoshoot with me. Some of them don't want a photoshoot at all; they just want to help. I was going to upgrade to a 60D before my lenses were stolen in August, but instead I had to buy new lenses, and... it set me back. So I thought, "Okay, why not just save the extra thousand or so for a dream camera?"
So I started this fund. Obviously you can donate if you want; I'll note you the link. But I can't give you a complimentary photoshoot because a) you're a stranger IRL, and b) you probably aren't in my area. But if you want to donate, I'll hand out a generous amount of faves/comments, maybe even give you some points that I've accumulated! Every cent of the donations will go to my camera upgrade and nothing else. I'm not trying to do anything official or against the DA rules; it would just be a mutual understanding. I don't really expect anyone to want to donate anyway, so this is probably all for naught.

Even so, I just wanted to let you guys know what's going on with me artistically. I have a couple of photo ideas waiting to be shot. Wish I had a nice model but eh.

As for life, everything is fine. It's a slow time of the year for the restaurant business, so my hours SUCK, but things will pick up soon, I hope. The more hours I get, the faster I can buy my new camera. Sigh.

Hope you all are doing well.

I've been taking photos since... I think elementary school. I started with a film camera, but then the world went all digital. :P

So I got a digital camera in 8th grade for Christmas. It was nothing to brag about, but the next one I got was an improvement, as was the one after that. I got my first DSLR, a Canon Rebel T3, for Christmas 2011. :love: I'm currently using that bad boy for all things photographic.

And, in the distant future, I hope to buy some lighting & studio equipment. Photography sure is an expensive hobby, but it's also the best. ;)

I'm completely self-taught in photography, graphic designs, and photo-editing. I've been adding watermarks to my photos, or the ones that I consider more "arty" than my others, because I don't enjoy having my art stolen (it's been done). So, I apologize if you don't like it. I try to keep it small and out of the way. It changes constantly... Please don't mind it!

I'm also a pretty nice person. I may not have time to thank you for the favorites, but I do appreciate them very much, and I try to give llamas out as a token of my gratitude if I haven't already.

Don't thank me for the llama... just give me one back. ;)
