My system is creaking at the seams, and I’m starting to hit my head against the limitations of my camera equipment and computer. The question is: do I keep the current rig and continue to practice/learn and get better, or do I pull the trigger on some new gear and take that next step?
Ballpark cost for the new rig – camera, lenses and computer – will be around 7 grand. I can afford it, however I don’t want to spend that kind of money and then end up producing content which can be produced from my current set up. I’m also not getting paid for this, and am aware that the content I’m producing is not quite good enough for sale.
On the other hand, the new equipment will allow me to produce the kind of content I really want to create. I definitely lean a little more towards the visual art, and the photography is just a tool, a canvas, to create the art.
I’ll need to mull this over some more…….
