    So I got an internship at this place and it's amazing. Here's a run down of things they do... Photography, Wedding Videography, Web Development, Stickers, Vinyl, Prints, everything! I'm a web developer, so I'm primarily working with that, but I will be learning more with everything else. Yesterday I made my first vinyl sticker, and I'm learning Final Cut (never done video editing before, but liking it). I'll be learning photography with them as well. Prints are free, stickers and free, vinyl is free. But one of the nicest perks is that he said I can borrow any of the lenses they have when ever I want. He's got a 50 1.4, 70-200 2.8, 15 2.8, 17-40 4, 24-105 4, and many more. He also told me that there's a good chance of full time employment after a few months if I wanted. Just sharing my enjoyment. Now which lens to borrow first?

    Cliffs: I got an internship and have access to a bunch of nice lenses when ever I want for free!

    Yeah, it's a company in Rochester called Technotic Media. They've done some pretty cool stuff. A lot of their clients are Car and Motorcycle emphasized. Great company with a lot of stuff I'm interested in learning.

    They might be getting a 5DMKII if they are back in stock places because they've got a printer that they can utilize the full 21MP. I'd like to use the 15mm, but since I've got a crop lens, it's not quite the same... I need to upgrade to FF haha.

    They've got some expensive printer or something that prints and cuts (for stickers and other stuff). I'll see what kind they have exactly. The Vinyl one they said isn't really top of the line or anything, but it gets the job done. I'll check what kinds of models

    Cool sounds like a Roland SP or VP printer/cutter. I have the same one.
    Very cool!
    What program are you using for print and cuts?

    He uses Illustrator for making designs, then he imports them into some program (I can't remember the name) then he takes the design, welds it, makes multiple copies on the sheet, then cuts it. I can't remember what program it is, but he said that it's a really simple program that a lot of people use for cutting.

    Thanks!

    I'm a programmer, so I'll write backends for people, create databases, all of the dynamic stuff. That's what I do primarily. Learning photography is just something I'm really interested in.

    I guess I should've been more specific. What platform do you do web development on? PHP, ASP.Net, ColdFusion, etc.?
