There is nothing I want more than to be able to make a living doing what I love the most. How do I get there?
I'm still in the "friends and family" stage of photography, but would like to get real clients. What should I improve before I start charging? Are my pictures alright? Anything missing?
LOTS OF EXTRA INFORMATION:
- I've recently been diagnosed with anxiety and depression and photography is the only thing I am comfortable with even when I meet people.. Since I will not be able to get a "normal" job until I get healthy again, I've been thinking a lot about photography. It sure would be nice to have an income and build a better portfolio. It's the only thing I want to work with, so why not start now? Should I wait for months/years to get better before I try?
- I'm this far a natural light photographer, using only a reflector for fill light. But I will learn some off camera flash too, (even if I'm still convinced I don't really like the look of it.)
- Also saved up some money to get the 70-200L since the Canon 50mm 1.4 is the only lens I've ever owned and sometimes I wish I had other options.
