Back from the hiatus!

 

For those who have been wondering what happened to my blogs, and me ofcourse, well - i am having a severe case of virus infection!:-)

No, no – not the medical kind, but the photography kind! Which I think is good because its about time I took my photography seriously because that’s the one thing I really love doing.

So, first thing I decided was to set my gear right. So now I have almost all range of glasses (to the uninitiated, thats the pro-talk for lenses :-)). I have a pro tripod a pair of pro flashes with diffusers and a reflector.

So that makes it a complete set. So now my gear looks like this

Olympus E-30 body, 18-180mm zoom lens, 9-18mm wide angle lens, 70-300mm telephoto lens, a 25mm pancake lens, a 35mm macro lens, EC-20 2x teleconverter (doubles the focal length of any attached lens), Benro ballhead tripod, FL-36R and FL-50R flashes, a 5-in-1 reflector, and a Kata carry bag!

So how much did all this cost? It set me back by $4500!!!

I dont regret anything because I always wanted a semi-pro gear and thats what I got. I am truly happy with my purchases.

I would seriously like to pursue this hobby because this is what is most satisfying for me. I am not too concerned about whether I will earn anything or not out of it. Sooner or later that will happen too, I am sure. I sure get a tremendous sense of satisfaction from the apprecaitions that I get for my pics.

Here are some of the fruits of the labor!
