    Default Photography Brightened/Ruined my life!

    It's been a bright road ahead so far for me. I am lucky in that my girlfriend was in the photography club as a film user) before I took up this hobby. She is also cute and pretty which makes it easy for me to look for model for portrait shots. Of late we have taken alot more photos and enjoy the pictures as much as I do taking them.

    I've heard of horror stories though about relationships ending on a bad note because of neglect for the other half, spending excessive amounts on equipment and (ok i haven't heard of this one yet but I think it might happen) running off with the opposite sex with same passion for photography.

    Care to share about what's the road been like for you and any tips for those out there obsessively hooked on this expensive hobby?

    Why worry so much. Just go out and enjoy life with your GF and enjoy life shooting. What happens down the road, is something you have little control over with.

    Actually, to be frank, the likelihood that you will breakup with your current GF sometime in the next couple of years, is so hight that no bookie will take the bet.

    So, just chill, don't worry about your potential expansive hobby, and enjoy.

    Actually, on the other hand, why don't you just go worry about everything, your potentially expansive hobby included, her potentially expansive hobbies included. And starty worrying about your GF, she is cute and pretty right? Let's throw in all the other guys who are interested in your GF and has the guts to BARGE right in, and be miserable. Wonder what else can you worry about, I want to help you to become more miserable.

    if u think ur photography is too expensive... wait till u 2 get married (when u reach dat stage)... maintaining a wife and home is heck lot more expensive!


    *in case i get burnt at the stake by the serious minded CSers, male or female, the above comments is a JOKE!*

    I've tried to give up photography a few times, but always came back to it. There's just something about it. I've never gone back with a girl after a relationship has ended though.....

    Cheers,

    It is not a JOKE,

    In Singapore, is YOU and YOUR WIFE, maintain a HOUSE, your CHILDREN and YOUR PARENTS and PARENTS IN-LAWS. Scary right?

    That’s why so many people rather to stay single and be merry.

    hmm...photography mess up my life?

    my first love was IT and I was determined to go into this after grad.

    but half way thru...i found a 2nd love - photography

    now i do freelance in both photography and IT, but I think i must really settle with only one....either full time in IT or full time in photography.

    it is better to concentrate in one, rather than dont do well for both right?

    photography SAVED me from a ruined reln.

    nothing else to turn to, i carried my cp5700 EVERYWHERE for 6 months. i even placed the bag next to my bed when i slept.

    that time recovering from serious trauma.

    Five women left me because of photography. Fortuntely or unfortunately I met them through photography which has both brightened and nearly ruined my life.

    So anyone knows of the next CS model shoot?
