No longer pursuing videography - all in on photography

Merry Christmas, everyone! Hope you're enjoying the holiday season.

While I have enjoyed taking videos to capture memories over the years, I was always intrigued with videography and cinematography.  Ultimately picked up one of Canon's cinema cameras (EOS C70), and it was fun to use and to learn with.  However, I came to the conclusion that video work is not for me.  I find it insanely complex as compared to photography.  Epecially audio.  Kudos to all those that have the skills for video work!

So I decided to pack up the gear and sell back to B&H's used department.

I'll now focus (pun intended) solely on photography.  It doesn't feel like a chore as was when working with video.  And being able to work with strobes/flash is something I really enjoy as well.  I also much prefer post work of working with individual images.

Have you had a similar journey? If you work with both photos and videos, have you found that you gravitate more towards one or the other?

Good luck with the new focus (another pun intended) and see what develops (another pun intended).

If I recall, a newspaper had a column that was humorous and satirical. The title was Pun and Ink.
