So I'm to the point of doing a Gofundme to help me replace my equipment for a camera and basic lighting kit that allows me to enter into the Pro portrait world. I've got my eye on some used equipment to help lower my price point to get up and running. If you've been following my work, you know that what started almost 5 years ago as a MWAC (mom with a camera) led me down a road of discovering photography, printing, printmaking and art that forever changed and redefined my life. Now that I've left school, I don't have the access to the equipment I had anymore, and I"m still using that same T1i. It's a great little camera, but it does little to compete in the professional market.
If crowdfunding annoys you, just move along. I'll be plugging this thing no more than three times in the next six weeks here because I'm really trying to get this done. And, in case you're wondering - I'm a preschool teacher for my day job. So, I'm not asking for folks to fund my life - just help me catch the light. http://www.gofundme.com/catchthelight
