Photography is not fun



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. Do some research about its uses and specifications and determine whether or not it’s for you and if it’s what you really need. 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.
