I've had a lot of people ask me if I want to turn my recent photography hobby into a future career for myself. Wanna know the answer? Well, the short and sweet answer is no. I don't. I love my job (and my steady paycheck) and I don't plan on leaving it anytime soon in pursue of a photography career.
But you gotta know that there's a long answer too. Of course. While I don't plan on quitting my job anytime soon, I do think it'd be fun to master the art of photography and maybe someday (in a very, very long time) see where it goes. I have loved doing it so far. It is such a challenge to juggle so many things (both technically (think ISO, aperture, focus and shutter-speed) and non-technically (think trying to pose people and create great compositions). And in five+ years when I'm married and have babies? Well I guess then I'd have to rethink what I want in life once that time comes.
So for now, I am a graphic designer. And yes, a photographer too. But as a side thing. Something outside of work that I can focus my creativity on and love. And if I get tired of it? Well, I'll step back, take a break, and see what happens from there.
PS - sorry about dropping the ball on Trendy Tuesday. I've been without internet at home for about a week and haven't had the time to peruse all my blogs for inspiration! Next week it should be back.
