I took me over a year of taking the most godawful shots you can imagine. I have very forgiving freiends, neighbors and barnmates. But I eventually got better. Here are the two shots that took me over the top and I shot them both with, I think was a 3mp Olympus prosumer camera.
I decided that I wanted to shoot weddings and horses and so I dressed up Tina, my neighbor's daugher as a flower girl and I volunteered at a horse show. That's what I was doing every single week, trying and usually failing to take the type of shots I wanted to eventually be paid to do.
Clients and galleries are not going to come knocking on your door, I want you to get out and get started. Getting started sets a certain energy in place that eventually will bring the clients, trust me.
And remember if you are not taking the bad shots you will never take the great ones.
