    So far, so good!

    I'm still at the newly-wed stage, it helped that I printed off our B&W wedding photos, and as long as I take enough kitty pictures she's happy. She understands the need to create, she has her own hobbies. Although if I keep bringing home stray lenses I may be in trouble.

    Not to get all goooshy, maudlin and trite, but it sounds as if you both are already rich beyond measure - congratulations!

    My wife really doesn't understand why I don't take "color snapshots". She really doesn't care for the type of photography I do or the time I devote to it. Too bad. I'm not giving up either her or the photography.

    Since I met my wife through photography, it's no surprise that there's great compatability about it. We share cameras but mostly she uses the ones I don't and I the one she doesn't. Her images are very different from mine and we can go to exactly the same place and bring back utterly different work and we each marvel that the other saw what we did and missed what we didn't. Financially, there's a great deal of respect for the need to get the equipment and supplies that are necessary but both of us are careful about the money spent and aren't wasteful about it. Mostly, though, our interest is in making images and not fussing over equipment so it's never a problem. I can't imagine how I could be happier actually.

    It's interesting that this thread is so upbeat. Months and months ago there was a similar one but the premise was on lack of support rather than what's positive. This is much more enjoyable to read.

    I'm not married, but I have a lady friend that just gushes over all my photos. She has several of my photos on her desk, as well as a framed 11x14 of this image: http://www.apug.org/gallery/showphot...cat=500&page=2. It is her favorite. I take her to the framing shop with me, and she helps me pick the color for the undermat (top is white). Last Thanksgiving, I gave her a little 3MP digital snapshot camera, and recently I had one of her photos mounted and framed - she has been walking on cloud-9 for days now.

    As long as I don't occupy the darkbathroom for hours on end while she's home, we're fine. Fortunately our schedules work well in this regard.

    So what is the secret to getting them on board?

    My wife is also 100% supportive and has been for the last 29 years. She isn't a photographer but very talented as a watercolour artist. In fact it was my wife that persuaded me to get into large format photography. I guess the fact that she spent 27 years working for the Visual Arts Department at the local School Board helped a lot.
