So I've had the luxury of being able to devote my time almost exclusively to photography for the past 2 1/2 weeks. It's been wonderful, I've been very productive, I've made a good number of sales, and I've really enjoyed the experience. Trouble is, I'm getting antsy. I think I've been spending too much time with myself, you know? Art is often a solitary pursuit, in my case, and I think I'm missing the social connection one usually has at work. Especially since I mainly sell online, so I'm not interacting directly with shop owners, customers, or fellow vendors.
It's something to think about pretty seriously, since one day I hope to make photography my exclusive career. Does anyone have good solutions for keeping the social aspect of work alive?
