Investing inThe Future

posted on 6th of august, 2010

I just discovered a site that sells quality professional lighting equipment that's very inexpensive (not cheap). I think I'm going to make the investment and get the primary and secondary lights, the two backdrops, the reflective umbrellas, stands,etc. I can get all of it for under $200.00 and I think it would be money well spent. Even if I never sell any stock photos, the lighting system will make me a better photographer...which is what I'm really concerned with in the first place.

I've noticed that my photos have gotten more beautiful and artistic since I joined the Dreamstime community. I've learned a ton of new stuff and have even discovered that my camera can do things I didn't even think it could do. I'm getting out of my comfort zone and it is very liberating. Now all I need is a dozen beautiful models and 500 release forms and the future is wide open. :)

The most important thing I'm learning is that a good shot is worth the time it takes to make it a good shot.

The website is cowboystudio.com. They seem to have good equipment and they sell replacements too. (I should ask for a commission)

I think it is really your interest in the lighting equipment that will make you a better photographer :)

About me

In my photos, I try to capture the true essence of the object I\'m photographing. I have completed a course of study with the New York Institute of Photography,but I\'m still learning. I hope to greatly improve my photography skills in the future. I also plan on continual upgrades of my equipment, and on trying different techniques for achieving the look I want my pictures to have.
