Understanding the basic concepts of photography will play a critical role on the development of your craft, your creativity will play also an important role so let your mind fly to the unexplored the unknown, play with your settings following some basic rules and let the world to be surprised by your art.
As photographer I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of people and take my camera to some places around Canada, USA and Mexico and I am always looking for new adventures in new places to create more content and keep practicing. As many other jobs, photography business is always evolving, changing into new ways to take photos, and every year we have access to better and more reliable equipment.
Being a photographer may look like easy job but let me tell you it’s more complicated than you think, many times, especially when you are starting you will have to have another job which would be your first source of income until you find a way to make a living from photography only, so that means sometimes you will be overwhelmed by all the stuff you need to do until you become a full time photographer on your own. With this I’m not trying to persuade you to not follow your dream but as I said before I just want to share my own experience hoping this helps if you are seeking to pursuit a photographer career or any other kind of art and make a living from your craft.
If you made it this far I hope you are not disappointed, this blog is meat to share some ideas, personal point of view and information that might be useful for new photographers or aspirants to this beautiful career.
