I’m raising money for Photography & Mayhem. Click to Donate: http://www.gofundme.com/PhotoMayhem #gofundme
For years, I’ve been taking macro photos of insects, flowers, textures; I also love shooting scenery, and am getting more comfortable shooting photos of people. I’ve had a little Nikon Coolpix that’s a hybrid point-and-shoot/DSLR for as long as Brandon has been around, and I’d love to upgrade. I haven’t shot any new photos in a year, because of my mental and physical health, but I’m finally FINALLY getting my shit together, and I want to start shooting again. I’d really love to upgrade, but I no longer work. I don’t see myself employed for a while, because volunteering at school right now is my highest priority. Sure, Craig has gotten a raise, but I can’t expect him to help me pay for the camera I want, even if the low-end price is less than $1,000. I feel weird asking people, friends and strangers, to help, but I want this. I want this so much that I can nearly taste it, and it tastes like old people and soap. (Sorry, that’s an inside joke to our family, though you may get the original reference!) This is why I am asking for your help. While I’ve asked for a lot more money than the low-end camera costs, if I can raise enough, I can choose a different camera, or I can buy lenses, flashes, or other accessories. I’ve always carried a camera around, but I haven’t had it with me in so long, because I haven’t felt in the least bit creative. I feel it now, though, and I could really use your help. Every tiny donation counts. Please know that I will be forever grateful.
