Nobody ever said this hobby/profession/obsession was cheap.
You put in the hours. You invest in your art. And sometimes that means a little lull in the finances between paychecks when you're in need of film, paper, and chems to keep your passion chugging along.
Just remember to look underneath the couch cushions and put a few pennies in the piggy bank for a rainy day (or when you run out of film).
