Should I or Should I Not

9 Nov 2009 11:12AM   Views : 316 Unique : 261

That is the question.

I have lost a bit of interest in photography at the moment.

And I am supposed to go to Keswick this coming Sunday for a 4 days photography course I won in EPZ xmas draw. It is worth over 400.

Reasons I am wondering is because:
a. I don't like driving. Driving from South Wales to Keswick, I am not really looking forward to that.
b. the petrol cost is probably going to kill me.

But it is a prize that I couldn't afford, and would be a good experience.

So.... I really am struggling to make a decision....Sad

I don't know how rich you are but i know that you will, in a year from now, have fully absorbed the cost. as for driving, consider other forrms, coach train etc. failing all that get onto the ephoto crew and ask them if you can transfer the course or donate it back to ephoto as a spot prize over the next few days. As you say it is a great prize and would be great experience. One Life... live it !
cheers

I think a course is a great way of reviving your interest, it's photography with a purpose. But what sort of course is it? Is it a subject that you like, and a course you would do whether you won it or not?

Cheers Roelf.
Steve, it is a landscape photography course. You know me, I like to try anything and everything. I won't do it if I didn't win, simply because I can't afford to pay over 400 for a photography course.

Well, if I were you and thought the cost of petrol was a bit high, I'd happily cut back on other expenses for a while to go there. As you say, normally you wouldn't take such a course because it's too expensive, so it would be a real shame to let the chance go. And it might help you with your other problem, having lost interest in photography somewhat. It might just kick-start the motivation and interest again.

Thanks for all the advice given.
I did go for it, and did enjoy it despite bad weather.
Cheers.
