  1. Go get it, girl.
    What is your ideal photography equipment situation? :)

    1. Thanks girl! That is an excellent question and the answer is, "I don't know." Part of putting it together is deciding what I want. I've seen some point-and-shoot-ish cameras that are really great and can make some awesome pictures. I'm trying to decide if I want to go that route and what lenses I want/need for my DSLR and what camera I want for video. IT'S SO HARD!!!
