A Costly Lesson but a Pivotal one

  • Love those long exposure shots, so I need a tripod
  • I’ll be taking photos out in the sun a lot, so I need some lens filters (ah seems like the best ones are the ones by Pete )
  • I should get more batteries for the camera, just in case
  • Well, since I’ll be taking a lot of photos, I also need more memory cards
  • I want a quick-release strap and a hand strap for quick captures
  • Oh, I need to buy a bunch of online courses cause I need to know how to use all this stuff.
  • Well, I also need to learn how to edit photos, so I should buy some courses around that too
  • If I take videos, I want my audience to hear me well, so I need a microphone
  • I don’t want shaky video, so I need a gimbal too
  • If it rains, I need to protect my camera, so I need a rain cover for the camera and all the lenses too.
  • Well, now I need a bag for all of this stuff.

Final Thoughts

So, if there is one lesson to be learned from all of this, it would be to just get the essentials and start learning and practicing.
