Yeah, that is pretty dumb. I shot corporate portraits last week. I used a total of 9 lights with modifiers, a camera, two lenses, pocket wizards, and backup cameras and lenses.

What, you didnt use your camera phone...I mean really.. sounds like overkill to me..:D

When it ceases to be fun, it will be time to walk away

Thanks again for all the input. As far as needing a wider lens...sure...I would like one. However I have people interested in buying prints as it is..so that is kinda not an issue right now. I am not pushing or even advertising that I sell my landscape/still life/odd and end photos. I take random images...maybe a barn with a wheelbarrow out front, or something like that. And I get a few request of someone wanting to purchase a print. Now as far as landscape images costing more in equipment...or taking more skill...I kindly and respectfully disagree. :)

See how much they would be willing to pay for a print..that will guage their interest..

Also post processing is SO much different on landscapes than portraits. What type of landscapes sell out there?
