Am I missing something

I am not a photographer by any means, i am a hobbyist and that is really stretching it since i dont seem to have enough time to shoot much. But, i am a woman and i am a mother and my guess is that most photography is bought by women and mothers.

So, one piece of advice that may or may not help.... friday night football. When my sons played football there was a photographer on the side lines. I knew i could take video of the games, i could also get some shots with my camera but i did not have a nice camera with a really nice zoom, or the skill, and i could not get the action shots close up. There was a photographer on the side lines taking pictures, he gave me his website, i gave him my boys jersey numbers and positions and he took some beautiful actions shots which i gladly purchased from his web site.

You may want to look into the local high schools football schedule, which is starting up now, their home games and spend some friday nights shooting. If nothing pans out, at least you will get experience and possibly some nice shots for your portfolio.

My youngest son is a new photographer. He went to school for film productions, learned a bit about photography, but found out when he graduated the field is tough to break into. I encouraged him to try anything related to his field. He finally was hired by a company that films at the amusement parks. While the pay is low, he is gaining experience, he shoots alot of underwater, and is now transferring into their sports division which includes golf, cheerleading, dog shows, motorcycles, etc. Very broad. He sees this as a way to learn more, get more experience and grow. And in the process he is also learning the art of communicating, networking, sales. I have no idea what your experience is with photography but just thought i would share. Maybe it will spark something for you.

Again, not a photographer, just a mother.

In october, i received a very similar letter after ordering the 50 mm lens.

"Due to an unusually large response, we are temporarily out of stock
of the item(s) you ordered. Additional quantities are on order and
we expect them soon. Your order will receive priority upon receipt
in the warehouse, and we expect to be able to ship order within 30
days or sooner. We are very sorry for the delay and assure you that
we are making every effort to expedite your order.

If you wish to cancel your order, please call us at 1-800-243-8633,
or e-mail us at the address listed above. We believe the wait will
be worthwhile, but of course the choice is yours.

Sincerely,


Customer Service"

I waited it out and did received my lens at the discounted price and for me the price was worth the wait. Hope it works out for you all.

I also recieved my 50mm today. I ordered it back on October 12th and it was on backorder since. But it arrived today, i tried it out, and i love the bokeh created from my Christmas tree lights. My son is drooling over my lens . It was well worth the wait and at a good price. I would order from them again.

I wouldn't count on getting anything shipped within 10 days if it is on backorder. You might get lucky, but mine took from October 12 to last wednesday to finally come back in stock and be shipped and it had the same ship 'within 10 business days' note. But i did receive my 50mm today and i love it. It was well worth the wait for the original sale price. Patience paid off.

Contemplating the 55-300. Ordered the 50mm for $119 October 12 while the site said in stock. It quickly turned to back ordered and just got and email last wednesday saying it was finally shipped and to arrive in a few days.The 55-300 may or may not get here by Christmas but since it would be a Christmas present to myself, i guess it doesnt much matter.

My only advice on back ordered items, based on my experience, be patient. Hopefully they will come back in stock but it may take awhile. And for me, the price was worth the wait

Shootsac camera bag

I had been eyeing up this bag but it was out of my price range, running $229-$249, but found it on ebay and won the auction at the starting bid. I can't vouch for the seller as i have never purchased from them but the sellers reviews are good as well as the reviews on the bag. It might be of interest to you or your wives/gf's.
