Can anyone tell me how I can get into this business? I would hate to take bad photos on the Big Day.

Chilly


Depending on where you live, I would just try it out. Set your prices low and explain to people that you are just starting out. I shot my first wedding for $125 USD. I shot 3 siblings weddings because the parent loved the work, each time the price more than doubled, but they didn't care because they knew I was getting better to. I find one way to get lots of weddings is to put a lot of information online. People don't like to call until they have an idea about what you can do and what it will cost. Check out my New Mexico Wedding Photography site. I no longer shoot many weddings, I mostly do stock photography now.

fantastic photos, except that really close-up photo. I hate that u can see little details of skin, even though it's processed in a perfect way, I hate to see skin from so close.

otherwise fantastic portfolio



I actually like to see the skin texture sometimes. It shows that a model is not made of plastic. I think these are excellent photo all of them. I like the expression in the model and the B&W processing seems flawless. Thanks for sharing.

I agree that the L glass is an upgrade, but what type of photography do you do? Is it overkill? I always found it useful to go over to PhotoSig and see what others where doing with the equipment I already have. If I couldn't do that, I knew I had learning to do before I needed new equipment. I did finally end up buying a Canon 20D (this was 5 years ago) and still use that camera because I haven't been able to push the limit to where I need something more. I have the 70-200 and love it, but make sure its worth the money in your type of photography.
