Momtographer Monday- One more thing about gear

February 06, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I had a thought this past week that continues the idea of it not being about your gear, so I wanted to make sure to share it with you all:

When you're a broke college student, sometimes all you have is a microwave or an iron and ironing board or even a hotplate. You usually can't afford to buy the "fancy" groceries and end up buying Ramen, bread, cheese, milk, etc. Just the basics to ensure that you have food in your stomach. But you know what's amazing about that time? You become really creative in using what you have. Would it be nice to go to Harris Teeter and spend $200 on groceries? Yes, but as a poor student, that's just not in your budget. So sometimes you take that bread and cheese and make grilled cheese sandwiches using your iron/ironing board (if you have NOT done this, you are missing out). If you had some extra money that week and got yourself some lettuce and tomatoes, you get to add those onto your sandwich! 

So, what does this have to do with photography?

It just goes to show you that you don't need the best gear to take great shots and sometimes you just have to be creative with what you have! How is that homework coming? Do you guys have any questions?
