    im not a pro...far from being one. but i do enjoy photography and do shoot on request sometimes. to me, money is just one benefit from photography. there are many other things i can derive from photography that are completely non-tangible. i feel happy when i shoot kids, inspired when i shoot certain events, and perhaps most of all, i just enjoy being there to capture the moments.

    so if you feel that you would like to shoot, then do it

    Then she said 1 thing... which sparkle a thought... cos i was showing her my super rotator, then she say, Dun waste your equipment & skills, you should help us shoot lor... (note should) dun waste your talent...

    so i wonder... should i or should i not... hehe...

    i mean, if you got the skills, u got the time, should u shoot or should u not... i mean, i'm not earning a living for this, i got plenty of stuff, but underutilised, and instead of just lazing around, then let my equipment rot, should i go shoot for charity or something?
    Got time, still ok. Depend on urself.
    No time, forget abt it.

    I've got relatives who's been asking me abt my rates and tried to pull strings by using things like 'relatives' and stuff like that. No way in hell am I shooting FOC or for raw material cost. If I say $1K for ur wedding, still wanna bargain, go ahead and bargain loh. I'll up it to $10K.

    Do it with your heart and because you want to do it........no use to go there shooting halfheartedly. And your mother is right about you having equipment lying there for 'nothing'.

    And the effects of your karma depends on your own actions, not on Buddha........:-)

    Reap what you sow as they say........

    Bad Karma with CSers will not shorten your life.

    It will guarantee that you will always shoot alone with no one to talk to.
