In 2009, I had a studio photography business. Needless to say, I find taking pictures of trees, rocks, and mountains much easier. People have such opinions about themselves and how they should look. TRUST THE PHOTOGRAPHER!!! Its our job to make everyone look good. Anyway, that business sputtered and failed (I can admit that). But I learned a lot of life lessons and it has helped shape who I am today. Well I still have the equipment. I use the back drop stands at the cons to display my art. Things like that can always be used. I finally figured out a use for my lighting stuff. Actually, my cat broke one of my bulbs ($30). Bummer. But hey, that forces me to be more creative with my lighting.
