    Any advise,thoughts,or comments would be greatly appreciated.

    getting in the door and finding work will be harder than procurement or learning to shoot.

    How often would i calibrate?
    I do it in each environment I'm shooting in. Keep the card out of focus, calibrate your camera, press your shutter halfway; if you can lock your settings and have fun.
    Thanks! My grey card is on the way.
