Today I rounded out the last piece of a very basic, very boring, reliable, serviceable, professional photographer's kit. It's not an inspiring, flashy rig out. It's not specialized, and doesn't really excel at anything. I'm almost unreasonably excited about it.
It's a big step to have a professional rig at my disposal at all times. No more renting, borrowing, or getting creative with limited gear. It just gets out of my way and is there at all times. Being able to pick up at a moments notice is empowering and confidence boosting as hell.
Besides, now I'm free to buying the fun stuff.
