Caldwell: I know of few people who would have the courage or the common sense to do what you have just done. Not that it really matters, but I would like to say that I have the greatest respect for you. I do believe you have done the right thing and I have a sense about how difficult it must have been because of the hope for new equipment and your desire to truly help a friend. Realistic self-assessment and honesty come at a price. You have paid that price and I am sure that your friend also admires you for it. If you would truly like to become a wedding photographer, do so. Study, work with a mentor, practice and do all of the other things a person needs to do in order to succeed. I am confident that you will succeed and that you will also maintain your integrity and most meaningful relationships in the process. Again, I wish you good fortune. And my hat is off to you.
Thanks alot man, that makes me feel alot better about my decision. You're right though. It's not my place for being an amature to try and capture a one time kind of thing day.
