I am gathering resources.
Cameras are ready. Lenses are clean and clear. Light meters are tested and compared against each other and the cameras that have meters.
Things are getting ready.
Film is in hand. Older film to be used as test material, newer film to be used when things get serious. Local film suppliers have been identified. Local labs have been identified for the test film. Mailers are in hand for the "serious" stuff.
Now it's time to develop the workflow - to know each step that needs to occur from the start of a "job" to the end - from picking up the cameras and heading out the door to delivering the final prints.
This is the fun part. No. Better said, that "this is fun". It's ALL going to be fun.
I'm going to be taking and selling pictures - personal portraits - distinctive, first class work.
I'm going to be doing street phtotgraphy. In Joliet. In Chicago. In and around Plainfield. With an eye toward exhibiting and selling prints.
Or I may go broke.
This is going to be fun.
