This is a set from one of the more expensive pictures I've made recently.
I needed to buy the stand that is holding that bag up. That isn't too big of a deal, though. It has been on our "get someday" list. This one has a pull up bar on it, which is something I will use.
But, that isn't what made it expensive. My backup camera took in some of that powder flying around, and a one disastrous cleaning error later... I had an expensive day on my hands! Its okay, I am getting it repaired. But its a very serious chunk of change I could have used somewhere else.
But, its worth it. I like how these look, and without that powder flying around it would not look as cool. I also really enjoyed the time spent making these. It was a lot of fun, a few laughs, and the idea was working so I was pretty comfortable from the start. I also learned a little bit about my processing workflow, and how I can refine an idea down what I have in my head.
In the end I have this picture. The only thing I would have done differently is exercised a bit more thought and caution while cleaning out the camera.
Every picture costs something, time, tears, lost sleep, or money-- this one cost me a camera repair!
