I have been spending a lot of time, a lot of time, lately reading, practicing, learning all I can about photography. Trying to take better images, process them more efficiently etc. I see things all the time now and think, that would be a great picture, I have gotten up early to catch the morning "golden hour" of light and stayed out late for the same evening opportunity. I really hadn't thought about how all inclusive this "hobby" has become until this morning.

The alarm went off for me to get up and go work out. The first thought that entered my mind as I was reaching for the alarm, and I'm not making this up, was "Boy this room is a bit underexposed!":o

Any known cures?

Mike

You’re addicted, there is no hope. Go out and shoot. Why fight it.

I actually have my wife act as my enabler. We plan little weekend side trips based on photo opportunities. We had a lot of fun last year with a trip to a demo derby, an antique steam tractor show, air show, botanical gardens, and many more. She is not the picture taker but has taken to pointing some interesting shots I would have missed and her eye is getting pretty good.

LOL (it may not be a joke though!)

I find myself planning things just to take pictures now. Tonight, minor league baseball game, (although the $2 bottled beer special doesn't hurt) and a local balloon glow this weekend. That is one of my favorite things about photography, you can do whatever you want, then add the phrase "and I'll take my camera". Other hobbies can be very limiting, but the photo ops that exist are boundless!

Somehow I knew that the suggested cure would be a new L lens!

Nope, no joke, and the walls are painted Crimnson Red "Roll Tide".

You must be nuts - you don't want a cure, you want to enjoy it.:lol:

I'm good with enjoying it, but waking up thinking the room is underexposed frightened me a bit! :confused:

Its not a disease, its the cure. You are now able to look at life in an entirely new artistic way. Consider yourself blessed. :)

No, it means you recognize and think about light. That's a gift, not a problem.
