I work for a digital high speed camera manufacturer and spend my days frantically making sure I don't miss the moment..which usually occurs in around 10ms. My job requires connecting cables, dealing with ethernet protocols, software, firmware and dealing with voltages and flickering lights. I love it and I feel I'm the most spoilt person on earth being able to do this, but it's a job and it's frantic.
If I don't shoot with pure analog methods occasionally, I get physically irritated and mentally I can't concentrate in my normal job. This is to the point where a few nights ago I made my own cardboard LF out of a Manfrotto box and trace paper, and used a polaroid back (my 4x5 is being modified ATM) - simply because I "had" to shoot some LF..
To me, this style of photography is absolutely therapeutic and I can't do without it.
