Ok guys, last time I bug you down with my trying to buy/sell stuff on the blog. But I want ot let you know what I still have my 400L5.6 for sale and now that I have sold my 17-40L, I am looking for a 90mm Tilt-shift. So if you are in the Montreal area, please contact me!
Why a tilt-shift? I have set a new challenge for myself: this year, I want to start selling prints. So far, I have been able to make money with my photography/videography doing portraits, weddings, product shots, etc… But so far, everything I ever shot was at the request of a client. So my challenge now is to shoot something that others will be willing to pay for, even tho they have no connections to it.
At first, I thought it was easy but now I realized how much of a challenge it is, especially given the incredible choice potential clients have. So I am setting up a strategy which I am going to share with you in the next few months. Stay tune for updates.
On a side note, I have been shooting a lot lately (hence the hiatus on the blog) and I use FCPX to edit everything since the target media is the web. And believe it or not, the more I use it, the more I like it! Of course it has a lot of missing features or strangely placed ones (btw why do we have to use a predefined set of values when retiming a clip?) but it really speed up my workflow at the cost of some precision. Still, in my case, it was a worth it.
