Well for the first time I got a chance to do a wedding in the bahamas, and one in Astoria, Oregon. All for 2012! I don't have money for lenses yet, but in time I will make the money, I hope! For now I will have to rent, for major photoshoots because my 30D will not cut it, even though it is iconic camera! Winning this contest would make a whole lot of headaches go away. . .. but it just never works out like that haha
Whomever wins this contest, I hope it is a person down on his/her luck in terms of money and gear. . . . it would make me happy, even if it weren't myself.
I'm with you on that one, but it's hard to win a contest like this when you are going up against those who have 5,000 to 10,000 dollars in high end gear.
Truly going to be a tough choice, as I saw some very nice photos that I will have to get ahold of the shooters to see how they did some of them. Very impressed.
Good luck to all the entries.
