    Worked my last day at my old job today.

    Got a job for about a 25% raise at another store, which is a lot more pro oriented, aka no point n shoots. Starting on Monday the 23.

    Registered our new business name today, designed our cards, put our website into effect (Not gonna share this one yet, we only have shit pulled off our flickr, nothing good on there :hs:)

    Put down a deposit for a 1000sq ft studio, to move in May 1, 2009. It's in the coolest building ever, it's just a huge loft with some amazing surroundings, at the absolute center of downtown.

    Aaaand we bought all this:

    Got a job at another camera store, and me and a friend are going to be renting a studio, starting our own business on the side.

    He works at the same camera store.

    OH, and I'm finally moving out of my parents place, to within a 4 minute walk from the studio. My business partner also live within about 15 mins walking to the studio.

    And the camera store we both work at is about a 15 min walk away from the studio

    it's so rad

    Thanks, it's really exciting. We'd been going back and forth on this for a year, and just finally got the balls to do it.

    Hopefully, very soon, it will not just be a side business. I think we'll do well.

    Hopefully. I move at the end of the month. Right now I drive about 2 hours a day total going to work and to the rink, this will make it so that I don't have to drive ever. I'll sell my car and buy an older cheaper one. No use having a, $18,000 car to be parked 90% of the time.

    It's basically a giant beauty dish, but more customizable and versatile.
    Elinchrom Rotalux Deep Throat 100 Umbrella with bag

    The new Rotalux "Deep Throat" octagonal 100 cm softbnk gives a more focused soft light when used with diffuser. To produce a hardy and brilliant spot effect light, the external and internal diffuser can be removed. Further lighting effects are possible when this light source is used with EL- Deflector in translucent or silver and gold reflecting colours.
