Photography comes and goes in phases for me; I have been absent here for some time but I guess it's starting back up again.
I broke my beloved Sony DSC-R1 last month. It still turns on, the circuitry and lens and everything seem fine and it still takes pictures, but the physical controls don't function correctly (barely at all), and I was quoted WAY too high a price for repair.
For now I'm borrowing my mother's little-used Pasasonic G2 (a Micro Four-Thirds camera, which is something I've been considering for some time now) with kit lenses. Frankly, I don't like it much. The controls are too cumbersome (not as many dials as the R1 and the interface isn't as well-designed) and the picture quality isn't noticeably better. And of course I miss the God-lens on the R1, but I'm just going to have to live with that.
Out of the blue I have some gigs/shoots coming up - a party this Friday, a big ball a month from now (a proper expensive one, hundreds of people, at the aquarium!) and perhaps something portrait-y/fashion-y/what do you call it when it's one or two people wearing interesting things and you go somewhere interesting and just experiment, with or without a solid plan? One of those. Not a cosplay this time, though.
Great time to kill my camera, eh. Not even kidding, for four years, that R1 WAS photography as far as I was concerned. (Not counting the last year cos I barely touched the thing.) Gonna miss you, buddy.
