Am I the only one here who makes their living elsewhere, so that we can sustain our passion of being photographers/artists?
No, as you've probably read, I do something else entirely. I'm not an artist. I'm a weekend photographic hacker. But it's that something else that I do that allows me to sustain my hacking, and is a good part of the reason I can continue to pursue it. Half of my hacking is enabled by that something else. And the other half is therapy enabling survival of that something else.
It's a strange symbiosis.
