    Nice lenses cost over $1k, so I got some cheap ones instead

    Good luck to you and taking pictures!

    I think that everyone on the board is sad that you are not taking up welding because it is their passion. I am sure that you understand that if someone wanted to take up photography you would really encourage them as well.

    I hope that it works out for you.

    I also have to put in my two cents on the picture taking although I am sure that you have heard of this already.

    I race mountain bikes and at each event there is at least one photographer that takes digital photos of every rider. The photographers are usually in a 'technical' spot so that the shots look good.

    After the race, the photographer emails all the racers and gives them poor quality pictures to preview. I have even purchased a couple and that is not something that I would normally do. They were good and will bring back memories I am sure.

    Not only are there photographers at races but every year a group of us go to MOAB in Utah just for fun riding and the same sort of thing happens.

    Best of luck!! (Maybe you can take some cool pictures of some of us welding? - I sure would purchase one of those!!!)

    I hope that you have fun on Monday!

    Cheers,

    Steve

    Welding isn't right for me at this time, that doesn't mean I wont go back later on. First rule is, do what you need to to earn a living, then you can get extras. In my case photography is my way to a living, and welding is an extra.

    Sorry to here things didn't work out for you, just remember you can learn to weld without an expensive big window so don't let selling yours keep you from trying again someday. You can learn to weld, we all did.

    I remember having problems learning to weld with 6010, I would stick it and stick it and couldn't get a stringer going to save my butt, my welding instructor became so frustrated with me he stopped me from welding, took off his helmet and asked me if I drank, I said no, he said I should start, it would probably help me. Now 6010 is a go to first rod for me when I need penetration, filling holes and when working on dirty metal that can't be cleaned properly.

    Good luck with your photography, hope to see you around.

    i very much like photography myself. and i'm not bad at it either. i had at one time thought of making it my full time work, doing weddings, etc. but i didn't think it would work out for me.

    i have a cannon eos 35mm. its very nice for the money. i don't ever use it because of my digital camera.
    I used to work at a newspaper, and I miss that kind of work. Weddings, not my thing I did a few, but I like to shoot action thats not scripted. I had several Canon's, then the newspaper bought a Nikon D1h and so I went digital. Now I can't see going back to film. So I just bought a used Canon EOS D2000

    My budget is pretty tight right now, but if you really want to sell this helmet, this is one weekender that really needs a tried and true safe helmet.
    So I would be interested in taking it off your hands.

    Do you take pay-pal?

    Let me see what kind of funds I can scrape together,
    If it is ok with you, I can send you some cash right away to hold it as well.
    Payday is the end of the month.

    Thanks,

    Don

    I responded to your email

    I respect your decision and wish you much luck in photography. If you decide to try welding again just drop us a line and we'll try to help you.
    Hawk,

    Don't worry I'm not giving up on welding. I need to have a job in order to make money, which I hope photography will do for me. I plan on photographing area high school sports and selling the images to parents etc. Even if I kept the hood it would be useless without a welder, and I don't have one, anc cant afford to get one.
