That was what my wife did initially. She is now taking the time to compose her shots and therefore, her output has dropped over the last month or so. In the beginning, she was shooting 1700 a week. Lots of of spray and prey.
Last Saturday, we spent 4 hours taking pictures and she took 138 pictures. This is the least she has done in a week since June. But, she spent MORE time thinking about the shots, and even laid on her back in dirt to get a good angle of a statue with a wide angle lens in her nice clothes!
I would love nothing more than to get a D4! But, that is certainly NOT in my budget. I could squeeze in the D7000 or perhaps a D700 and lens (at least from my initial findings) that I have seen from what seem to be reputable dealers on Ebay.
My wife has stated that she would love to eventually retire (she is a CFO) and take pictures professionally (knowing she wouldn't make much money). So, she definitely could end up wanting to do this for a living or just for a bit of extra income someday.
