Honestly it sounds like you are just making an excuse not to go out there and work.
The painter analogy is complete BS.
Ha, thanks! Well, actually I don't have any work, its not work for me right now, its a passion, art, and hobby. So I promise its not an excuse to not go work, I wouldn't want it to be work however, I do have a full time job that IS WORK. Photography is not WORK, for me, its fun, I hope its never WORK, and its always FUN and PASSION and ART...sorry if you feel different. If it becomes a small business that rolls into extra cash, that is mighty fine too, but I hope its never WORK. When it comes to a job, there is a reason its called WORK and not ...FUN. If everyone's job were FUN, and we all said, I'm have to go to FUN today...well...you get my point...but maybe one day it does become a full time job and is still FUN, that would be the best case, right not its not, its just me having fun, trying to learn, and wanting to play with lenses and see what I can do with my creativity.
The painter analogy was just that an analogy, you can call it bs if you want, sure there are some talented people who can do amazing art with 2 colors and a canvas, but there are also amazing artists who can do amazing stuff with a lot of colors and other kinds of media...I guess I just want to explore photography with lenses I've never seen or held before, so sue me. Borrowing a lens, renting them, all good ideas I'll try out. Eventually I will fall in love with some and WANT to keep them.
