I’ve been slowly working on reorganizing my house. It’s a slow process. But, I was very relieved to find my Nikon F4 in my closet. It wasn’t downstairs with the rest of my photo equipment, and so I was really worried that it “disappeared” somehow. I’m so glad I found it!
Speaking of photo stuff, I think I’m addicted to my computer. Now that Andrew is gone for a while I find myself sitting here all the time! I’m either scanning photos (like the one above I scanned in yesterday), uploading them to stock sites, editing them on Photoshop, or all of the above at the same time! I definitely need to make this my job, since I love to do it so much!
I’ve recently been pondering the idea of actually putting a small portrait studio in my house. It will be on the main floor and I’ll have to move some things around (which I’ve already started to do!) but I think it will fit. I might need to take the ceiling fan down though … I’m going to have to consult with Andrew on this when he gets back! I can’t really start building it anyways, since it will cost me at least $800 for the basic materials and I kind of don’t have that much money right now. If I actually make enough money selling stock then I think it will go towards my new photo gear, but I’ve got a long way to go before I make a significant amount of $$ (plus the ironic thing is that I need a studio to shoot the kind of photos that sell, but I need to sell photos to get the $$ for the studio!)
