Long Exposure Photography at Blue Hour, a.k.a. “Last Lights” of the Day, by Joey J πŸ“Έ

What I am Doing Now (1 July 2022)

As my ongoing effort to “go smaller”, I’m also trying to offload photography accessories that I’m no longer using. I have several of such items like my previous tripod (Manfrotto 190CXPRO3 ), Manfrotto XPRO Aluminum 5-Section Monopod , Gorillapod Focus , B+W 77mm Circular Polarizer Filter , etc. These things served me well in the past (except the monopod, which was an impulse purchase and ended up not using at all πŸ˜‚), but no longer add value to my photography life today.

I’ve successfully sold a few of these items on a local classified website, but the other few still remain unsold although my asking price is super low. I don’t mind giving away for friends or colleagues, but I don’t know anyone local interested in photography, so the last resort will be donating. πŸ˜…

As a self-proclaimed minimalist, I feel discomfort holding onto things that I don’t use. Not only they take physical space, but weigh on me mentally as well. So, I just want to quickly get rid of them all and feel freer!

    Thanks! Probably not yet. If I end up moving to Nikon mirrorless, I’ll still use it occasionally. πŸ˜…

      That’s good then and as long as you use it all! I’ve been using my Fuji so much I’m at the point again of thinking of selling stuff if it isn’t used regularly πŸ˜…

      Nowadays, mirrorless cameras are quite small, so a sub camera might not be needed if the concept is having a main camera, then a smaller one. The only reason for me to have PEN is for behind-the-scenes shots. Phone cameras aren’t still good enough for that. πŸ˜…
