I have a photo show in July. Since I haven't taken a good picture in several years, I had to dig in the archives for good shots to submit. While I would used to have printed these by hand (true craftsmanship! [sic]), instead I'm having the lab do it. Going through my old binders: I used to take so many pictures! I grabbed one of the two (or three?) inch binders, and it was like half a years worth! Now I use like 1/4" binders and it's 2 years plus worth of shots. What has changed?
- My preferred lab shut down. What was once $2.50 is now $6, what was once $5 is now $10. Also in the past few years the price of film has exploded! What was once probably like $4 is now $6, and on and on.
- 2 kids!
- Actual career-- I haven't worked 40 hours in a week since I started. It's the minorest drag.
