So seeing as I have started to spend most of, if not all of my money on camera gear, I decided to get a 500px account. I had heard about it before and had just been really lazy about it because I just didn’t think my photos were worth sharing. Today I saw a friends’ post about Flickr vs. 500px and having previously done the research it sparked me to make an account.
So far it’s awesome, I have gotten a lot of love for my photos which are amateur at best, which is a nice confidence booster. About a week ago I decided to start taking photography a bit more seriously as I believe it is more likely to get me paid work than just writing alone. I have also started looking at photography courses and after getting a 500px account, I’m starting to feel a little bit professional-ish.
As stupid as that sounds I have become so much more motivated to take my photography seriously since buying more gear and I feel like maybe that was the push that I needed to kick my butt into gear.
In any case photography is a rad hobby so I will never regret dropping lots of dosh on this stuff.
