I recently went to a photography workshop in Houston. I learned some pretty awesome things about photography and I definitely love my hobby even more now because of it. Unfortunately I couldn't help think: why the heck did I chose one of the most expensive hobbies ever?
If you know me, you know I'm tight with my money. I guess I'm just going to have to compromise.
Anyways, in addition to the new information, I also learned that I "need" so much more stuff. Here are a few of the things that I want over the next year or so.
5. A new camera. This may just be a case of the go big or go home mentality, but I really want a new camera even though I don't really need one. Here's the one I want:

4. A speed light system. I haven't researched enough to know a lot about it, but I want one nonetheless.
3. A wide angle lens.
2. A tripod so I can take more pictures without them being blurry. This isn't the one I want, but it looks cool.

1. A telephoto lens. I LOVE photos with blurred backgrounds, so I'm really wanting a nice telephoto lens. This one only goes to 85mm, but gets f/3.5-5.6. This is what I plan on getting for Christmas. I'll have to sell my old film camera in order to get it, but hopefully it will be worth it!

As I'm sure you can see, I will need a second job to support my hobby. Anyone hiring?
