The grass is always greener on the other side, but we often forget that we aren’t cows and grass is gross. I do find this true about a lot of things in life. We always want something different or more, but if we ever get it, we are often disappointed or find that there are still issues we have to deal with. Well, recently, I moved my photography stuff out of my home and into an office/studio. It still needs a decent amount of work, but in general, it’s ready for me to work. So I’ve been using it for the past few weeks, and I’m started to see the difficulties of having a photography studio.
Difficulties of Having a Photography Studio
For the longest time, I did all of my work out of my house. At any point in the day, I could go into my room and mess with something or get something done. I had access to my big computer and all of my hard drives. Now, that is not the case, and it’s a little bit annoying.
The first issue that I’ve run into is that I can really only get work done while I’m at the studio. Yes, there are some things I can do from home like writing (I’m typing this up on the laptop right now!) but I don’t have all my images to add to this post. Right now I’ve got 3 other blog posts typed up and ready to go, but I haven’t been able to publish them because I don’t have the photos.
This situation can be a little bit of a pain. Normally, as soon as I think of something I need to do, I try to take care of it. Now, I have to remember to do it later when I get to the studio. I try to make lists of things but still, sometimes something gets forgotten.
There’s also little annoyances like having something at the office that I need. It’s usually not something big, but it still annoys me. For example, we needed batteries a few days ago, but all of my batteries and chargers are at the office. I also was needing a piece of camera equipment, but again, not there.
Now, I’m not thinking things will always be this way. I’m still new to this whole situation, so I’m sure things will start to work out and I will find a way to make this work. I might have to find a way to put digital files on a hard drive that I can bring back and forth or put ones I need online. I think that will help.
I know this sounds like I’m complaining. I’m really not. I just am putting out there what’s going on, so others might think about things in a different way. There are difficulties of having a photography studio, and this is just one of them, but I’m glad it happened, and I know in the end it will be better for me and my family.
