This may be a discussion for another thread, but... I tend to stay away from photographic tours because the photos that you get out of it are photos that a lot of other people have. For me, half the battle is just getting there! Tours seems to suck the customization and the one-of-a-kind-shot feel to them.

But, to each their own.

How about a small studio setup?

I would get a nice traveler size tripod (Feisol 3441S/Gitzo 1541T/etc), ballhead, grip on the 5DMK2, a bunch of Lee filters, and save the rest for a nice trip to a place with beautiful landscapes.


I'm a happy Canon SLR and Leica rangefinder user. bw!

Seems like you have everything you need already. I may catch some heat for saying this, but do you have 6-8 months worth of income saved as an emergency fund? Have you maxed out your Roth IRA for this year? Do you have any debt (credit card, car payment, mortgage, etc.) that needs to be paid off?

lol, it's funny that that you are worried about backlash from your comment about being sensible about money. What has this world come to?

Apparently we live in the "I want it now" era trying to keep up with the Jones'. That's how our economy got into this mess...by people buying houses they can't afford. But, that's a whole 'nother topic.

I'm pretty sure a plane costs more than $5000... :-P

Seems like the best option to me.

Or I'll toss out a suggestion that will probably catch some heat as well...

Ditch that Dell for a Mac. ;)

I bought a Mac a year ago, best computer-related decision I've ever made.

So I've got the Pro DSLR (5D II), Pro Lenses, Couple Speedlights, and Tripod and Memory cards and the like. Now I'm trying to figure out what I should get with $5,000 (maybe more). Been looking into aerial photography, but not sure about it. Other Suggestions?

I think I would go for a bigger lens and maybe some sky diving lessons.

I'd save it until December 23rd and buy a real nice salmon fishing boat from someone hurting for X-mas money.

Then I'd take pictures of it with the really nice gear I already have.


If you must know...
