    At this point it's just with my iPhone since my good camera died. I don't have any special training in photography anyway but I can get surprisingly good photos for e-books with my iPhone. But self-published paperbacks in color (print on demand) would be ridiculously expensive so I'm stuck with e-books only for now.

    Congratulations!

    I hope it is FF or bigger format camera.

    If it's FF, i recommend to get some good prime lenses.

    Shooting a lot with one good 50/1.4 teaches you more than shooting double amount of frames with something like 24-105/4 or 24-70/2.8.

    With photographing second hand stuff is a good choice. It's better to have second hand semi-pro stuff than brand new consumer stuff.

    Oh right. I was writing a book and stuff, wasn't I.

    I didn't write anything for... has it really been two whole weeks? Oh well. Anyway, I'm writing a short story right now.
