Since I bought my husband a Nikon D40 two years ago he has become a semi-professional photographer. He started shooting sports, then special events and most recently weddings. Of course, he’s upgraded all of his equipment and purchased new bodies and lenses as his career has progressed. His photographs have gotten better and better over time and everyone agrees that his photos are amazing.
Unfortunately, he tends to keep his camera equipment with him at all times, so although we own a ton of expensive camera equipment it’s really not available for my use most of the time. I find myself thinking more and more about purchasing a camera of my own. I’m inspired by my husband’s photos and the photos of bloggers who post photos every day.
The trouble is… I’m not certain that I’ll really take a lot of pictures if I buy one. I might be excited right now, but as time progresses it may just collect dust on the shelf. So rather than buying a new or used camera right away, I’ve decided to try to earn the money for it by selling items on eBay. If I can earn at least half of the money in the next month or two then I’ll feel more justified in making the purchase.
