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:

Let your buying impulse sit for a few months and then reconsider once it doesn’t dictate your decision making.
Avoid buying equipment you don’t really need. For instance, why would you need to buy a 600 mm lens if you rarely photograph outdoor? Let alone condoning yourself to pay the stuff by taking out a loan. It’ll only add unnecessary burden to you along the way with endless loan payments.
