It is time to get out your fat wallets and sponsor my purchase of a brand new, sparkling semi-pro digital slr with excellent lenses. A couple of hundred years ago sponsorship of artists was the norm. Rembrandt had patrons who paid his bills and look at the art he produced (I know he died a poor and lonely man, but that’s not important right now).
Anyway, gone are days of compromising, although I recently calculated that the ultimate machinery for me that would provide the ultimate image quality I would like, while still being portable enough to carry around, would cost about 75000 danish kroner. Reasonable as I am, less will do, as what I buy should reflect what I want to do with it. So the experts say. Therefore, I am working with a scenario that takes me pretty close to 25000 DKK. Excellent technical picture quality and a tool that will not get in my way. And something that will still be a fine tool in five to ten years time, due to the fact that image quality isn’t jumping very much from generation to generation anymore.
Problem. My wife whom I love very much won’t let me spend that kind of money (tip to bachelors: buy the stereo you want and the photo gear you want before you get married), so I’ll have to finance this myself and need your help. So, here goes. My pictures are for sale. If you want to buy one let me know. Pricing is reasonable at about 10000DKK per picture. That way three pictures sold should do the trick. I’m waiting for your orders. Please. Pretty please. Grovel. Beg.
