Starting a photography business is hard. Some think it’s a simple matter of taking good photos. My friends and family think my pictures are great; I bet I can sell them! But in actually going through the steps myself, I can tell you there’s a lot more to it. I’d like to share with you some insight into that world.
My kitties are my kids. With how active we are, and with how much we love to travel, cats are the perfect companion, as they can survive a few days alone with only an ample supply of food and water and a clean litter box. We don’t like to leave them behind, but we have the freedom to do so. And they’re all the more lovey when we return.
They’re also the perfect photography subjects.
This month was a bit slow with submissions, but I love the response! Stay tuned for the next prompt in a few weeks.
We lead very busy lives, and I’ve been feeling things have been particularly hectic lately. With the holidays fast approaching, there are a number of extra items on my to-do list. Additionally, the weather has been damp and dreary – not very conducive to enjoying the great outdoors.
In short: I’ve been cooped up in front of my computer, work work working, hardly seeing any sunlight and going just a tad bit crazy.
I often get the question, “How long have you been into photography?” but I don’t have the standard answer many other photographers have. I can’t count the number of years I’ve wandered with a camera, because I frankly can’t remember a time when I haven’t. My earliest photos predate digital, when I carried a cheap plastic something that took film cartridges I didn’t even have to queue or wind.
There are so many things one can do with photography. I’ve heard of numerous techniques, and I’m always inspired to try them all! I’d like to compile a photography bucket list and simply start checking the items off, but I’ve been so busy with so many other things… soon, I promise!
In the meantime, here’s one that I’ve been wanting to try for a while: focus stacking.
I’m not surprised this first one had few submissions, as I’m only just starting with the challenge. I would love to see more, so please keep your eye out for November’s challenge coming in a couple weeks.
