So I've finally hit that wall, after being brought up on film, sticking to my guns and spending the past few years attempting to perfect my craft I'm starting to wonder where I'm going with it. I'm a uni student so I'm also at that stage where I'm worrying about jobs and what I'm going to do with my life and due to that I've hit a crossroad. I've spent my teenage years dreaming of becoming a photographer, I studied it at college and now I'm studying it at university. I'm fully aware its a pretty unstable and risky route to take, devoting academic years to art when most people are getting their degrees in maths and law. Having a degree's not that special nowadays as it is never mind a degree in photography. So after mulling over the uncertainty of my future I've come to the stage where I'm starting to question film, as much as I love and enjoy it, is it really worth carrying on? Surely if I'm thinking of a job I should be following my peers and be spending all the time I have in the studio finding my feet with digital? It's film I love and its surrealism that drives me, but is that going to get me a job? Probably not, its digital that brings home the bacon. I've come across enough money to be considering new equipment so should I really be looking at R8s or should I be buying something like a Nikon D7000 and be focusing on studio work? Sorry about that big chunk of hazy thoughts and uncertainty, I feel as though I need some outside input so anything any of you have to add would really mean a lot!
