Thread: The Risk - Quiting your current job to pursue photography

    Default Re: The Risk - Quiting your current job to pursue photography

    unless one person is using a pen/tool/keyboard or any other working tool for 24hours a day, there's always time to shoot.

    i used to have that "excuse" too, but now during my leisure time i shoot. I shoot my food during my family lunch/dinner outings, i shoot while waiting for the bus or waiting for someone.
