Finding Me in Photography: Goals to Continue
Finding me in photography can be a struggle as there are many routes to take my photography experience. This project was inspired to help me focus on what it is that I want to do. The idea was to try and narrow down my broad ideas for photo opportunities and find my niche. Photographers can find success in photographing portraits, products, landscapes, or doing unique photographs with different subjects and colors. In trying to find what kind of photography I want to focus on, I realized that I like capturing all of the above. Portraits are fun especially baby ones, products are cool and doing it with light painting is adds a nice touch, landscapes are beautiful and finding any opportunity to take a picture is what I do.
I tried to decide what my focus would be, but found no success. I then had the idea to brainstorm different reasons why customers would want photographs. Some may want them for advertising, others as family portraits or announcements, and then there are those that are looking for wall art for their home or office. I decided that selling prints is what I would enjoy. I still like portraits, but selling prints means that after editing the image once, I can have it sell over and over again. The trick is finding prime opportunities to get the photos that are wall worthy. This will take time and years of photoshoots to build up a collection of wall worthy art. These images are the start of finding me in photography. You can check out more of my prints in my shop.
