dreamstime_s_10837833Most of the time when I do something I do it for a reason. Let’s take this list of camera equipment. It all pertains to photography, which happens to be my hobby. Something I love almost as much as I love writing.

     *Since I wrote Howdy, Ma’am and Hey, Cowboy, it’s important that you know my hobby is photography because my new heroine is a photographer. She’s a former travel photographer, settling down in her own business now. I have never been a travel photographer although I have done some traveling and took a lot of pictures.

Traveling and taking pictures doesn’t make me a travel photographer. A while ago I took two photography classes at a local community college. I do know a little bit about taking pictures.

I wanted you to know that as the writer I have some experience with photography which I believe qualifies me to create a character who is a photographer. I would love to trade my film camera body in for a digital SLR because I love the lenses I already have and can’t see giving them up. (UPDATE: I now use the Canon Rebel Digital SLR with my old lenses.) I must admit these 13 items are a lot of weight to carry around. With this being one of the reasons, I’ve since been looking at smaller digital cameras. The last time I took a flight, every piece of my camera equipment was manually checked.

Getting through Detroit Metro Airport was bad enough, but getting through security at a small airport in California to come home was worse. Every piece of my camera equipment was gone over–checked and double checked. So was I! Not to mention, I was the only one on the plane to be pulled aside. Therefore, I was the last one on the plane, a small prop job going to San Francisco. A trip to remember either way. Since I got a little off topic here, I will end this now. 🙂
