The new computer is treating me nicely. I had a shoot in the studio today (I can't really call it work, as it was with/for friends but it's also not necessarily free work for myself) and I felt excited to sit down for the edit. That has been a while. In fact, the last time that happened was when I got my previous MacBook, which was my first. Back then, I was still shooting the ol' Fujifilm X-T1 that had way smaller files though. The X-Pro3 and X100V produce some hefty files, even when shooting compressed RAWs or even JPEGs. I don't know... it just didn't work for me anymore.

Today though, it was smooth sailing all the way. When is the last time I shot and edited a complete shoot in one day? Hell, I even went through the filtering of another shoot I had laying around just because I had the time. This is why it makes sense to spend this much money on a computer. It hurts a little when you see your bank account taking a hit but you gain so much time, it's incredible. That makes it worth it for me immediately. I almost, almost, consider doing photo jobs again because of the lessened strain on my workflow.

Alright onto the third paragraph. Not because I have anything else to share but because the last line of the previous paragraph did not constitute a proper ending to this story. Also, I enjoy stories having more than one or two paragraphs. It makes it seem like somebody really put some thought into what they are writing. Three paragraphs does not provide sufficient length to call this anything more than a quick thought jotted down but at least it makes it seem like it's a thorough one. That should conclude it.
