Earlier this week I was out shooting and realized for the first time that I now have "photographic equipment." Last year this time when I went out shooting all I had was a camera, kit lens, a few rolls of film, and a tripod. Then I called it "camera stuff." Now I have all these choices to make before I even leave the house, between bodies, lenses, filters, accessories. I was thinking about buying a holga, because I've heard they're supposed to "free your mind" or something, but then I realized that a Holga is just one more object that I think I'm supposed to have. The last few times I went out I just took a Sony point and shoot with a peephole lens and had a great time. Don't get me wrong, I love having photography toys, but sometimes I wish I had saved my money and just spent the last year making pinhole cameras out of biscuit tins. I feel like such a douchbag lugging around a backpack full of camera bits and a gigantic tripod. I also feel like a douchebag whining about this. Has anyone else ever felt like a douchebag?
