I woo rich Tai-tais so they buy me my gears.
I shoot old tai-tais using my P&S. den show them lousy photos. I tell them, its the equipment's fault not the photographer. Next day they will buy me a new camera. I shoot for them again but this time, I use PS to edit, remove their wrinkles, make them slimmer etc... They loves it so to them its $$$ well spent..
ok ok , those are BS. I have to save, take sidelines, "investment" and use my bonus to get my gears.
