Photography is supposed to be fun, exciting, free, and a media form of creative expression for the photographer. But if you’re not getting any of that from photography, maybe the reason can be found among the following:
1. Buying a camera, lens, and other accessories that you don’t really need.
Every day, we’re bombarded by advertising, news, and advice from friends about the newest products. Anything new usually excites us. My advice, don’t be too hasty to buy a new product.

She really knew what she was doing and knows where to hit for that fatal blow. The lenses were then irreparable and useless. Read the rest of this entry »
