Calling All Photographers

I have a couple of questions for all photographers.  Some of it is my own curiosity and at the end of this blog you will find out what I have planned.

This first poll is all about where you are with your photography regarding it being a business or if you even want to have a business.  I have made some money off my photography, but being the introvert I am I really don’t believe I’ll ever sell my photos and make a living out of it.

This second poll is about the type of camera you use.  Your basic camera.  I know from time to time I use my iPod Touch as a camera.  But that is not my main camera.  You all know my basic camera is my mirrorless Nikon SLR.  I have three lenses and will probably add my fourth lens in the next month or so.

Some of my more popular blogs have been my tips and tricks posts. So I’m thinking I might start doing a post a week giving some tips and tricks for photographers. I am not a person who will speak technical mumbo jumbo, it just isn’t me. Do I know some of it? Yes, of course I do. But that is not how I explain things. I really want to help the average “I love photography” bloggers who want to develop their own eye and style. I feel I can share my experience and hopefully you will have some fun along the way. Here is links to some of my tips and tricks I have done in the past.

  1. I checked all that applied, hope that’s ok 🙂
    As I have learned all I know of photography by self-teaching, I love to read tips & tricks from pros, thanks for sharing!

  2. I made my living as a pro photographer for ten years — I don’t miss it and I never want to go back to it. Doing my own thing is more more pleasurable as a hobby, and I use whatever is available for taking photos.

  4. I enjoy your tips and tricks posts Cee and think it a weekly series would be a great addition to your blog. I mainly use my iPhone because it’s what I have but one day I hope to get a good camera along the lines of your mirrorless Nikon.

  7. Sounds good to me Cee…
    I have a Fujifilm Finepix S1800, but the only instruction manual is in Turkish, and whilst I can converse locally, I have just tend to use the camera on auto. So any hints and tips (in simple terms for us numpties) would be welcomed.

  8. Some years ago, I did have my own company, where I edited newspapers and magazines. In that time, I was my own photographer. I have only used Digital Cameras for these.
    Thanks for sharing.

  10. I love digital photography, but I cannot afford one of the really good cameras at this time, so I just enjoy taking photos with my iPhone 4s. I just bought some lenses for it which I am having fun experimenting with. Maybe…..someday….I will get a really good camera…until then just enjoying what I do have.

  13. This will be a great idea… I learn by seeing, reading, and then trying it out myself. The manuals that come with cameras are not all that great at explaining… I find them confusing…

  14. I also use a mirrorless , Nex6 – it had to be relatively cheap, very small, light sensitive and offers manual control and a very good UI.
    I am in media and ad business since 1998 and quitted last year. Now I do a job that makes my heart laugh every day – who needs money when there are friends?! And so, I do never ever want to go pro in a ‘creative’ profession again – else everything you produce would not be free art anymore….

  15. I don’t make a living as a photographer or have any high hopes to do so but it would be nice to re-coop some of the cost and that is what I try to do with my merchandising. Let me know if you need anything 😉

  16. I do sell some of my prints that I make into cards but I am an amateur with a huge passion. I have three cameras and one is an infra red. I love the creativity of post processing as well.
