One of the more interesting articles that I’ve read recently was “Tip of the Iceberg” by Thom Hogan. Oriented towards the more serious photographer this article challenges common thought regarding the cost impact of a high end camera body and how you might consider weighting it in your budget given the overall expense you’ll likely incur as a photographer. I read this after my new DSLR order was placed, but it certainly crystalized what I already knew subconsciously.
One side note to this article, given the overall expense of photography if you take the time to add up the value of your gear, software, computers, related furniture, etc. you’ll quickly see how fast things add up. Doing this is a great exercise and its an excellent reminder to make sure you carry the proper insurance in the event of a catastrophic event.
