We have been taking a class and both enjoy it very much though, and I like to encourage any hobby she shows an interest in.
I have some heavy lenses. Most of these are Pro lenses. When thinking about a 12 year old girl carrying a camera, I would have to keep the weight of the rig in mind. I can not just add the best lens for the occasion because it might be too heavy.
One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.
