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. :D

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. :dunno:

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? :lovegrin:

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.

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?

:confused: :confused:

hmmm...think that is why I am still single heheheh.....plus..when I am in a relationship..photography is almost at a dead stop come to think of it. Yoiu know how I know that...I rarely have pictures of anything including anyone of my ex g/f hehe...it is like a time line...each time I have a change of camera is a restart of my hobby heheh...and the END of a relationship

This one is SERIOUS... So pay attention!!!

When you are a photographic hobby couple... A-hem!.. cough cough... Sooner or later you may... probably will, decide to shoot each other... nude... or other activities... PERFECTLY OK... unless you decide to break up... Ah... problem...

If you piss her off and she show photos to your new girlfriend... YOU DIE JIA LAT JIA LAT... Even worse... maybe post on clubsnap ! ! !
