Well ladies and gentlemen, I am sad to say, my Lumix has kicked the bucket. A few weeks ago I was using it to shoot some photos for my dad’s website. I was using it instead of my DSLR because it was easier to over-expose the background (because of the small sensor, small sensor = limited dynamic range) and keep everything in focus (also because of the small sensor). I kept turning the camera off and on because the battery was running low and I really didn’t want to have to charge it. I turned it off and set up the next product to photograph. I picked up my camera, flicked on the on switch…and it broke. That’s right. The on switch broke.
I looked up to see how much it would cost to replace/repair it. Since it’s no longer under warranty, I can’t get it fixed for free. But I can get a new replacement for 200 dollars! It’s the same model or the current one similar to it. I probably wont though. I would rather save that money for a new 35mm f2! Yes, I am currently lens shopping. Dunno if I will get one yet, but Im considering it.
One thing about new lenses, is they cost money. And money is one thing I am trying to make off photography. So, I would like to say, I have successfully created a new website just for hiring me as YOUR photographer! Which means, that it is the end of this blog. Yes, I know. It’s sad news to hear, but it’s time I get more serious about photography. This blog has served it’s purpose. Which was to provide a place for me to put my work. But now I realize I want to be more serious about photography and I feel as though this blog is not the right place.
So, I am moving over to my new website/blog.
What I plan on doing is posting more “professional” stuff. I will continue to post here until the end of the year. And then, I will probably just stop posting here. MAYBE. I dunno yet. So yeah. Check out my new website! :D
