It's so easy to take lots of great photos, but at the end of the day, you need to get them off your computer and show them off!
I was recently asked to participate in an exhibition to raise awareness for Aids Help, and acknowledge World Aids Day, and thought I'd take this opportunity to give you some tips on setting up an exhibition.
Step 7 - Concentrate on the things you love shooting!
Are you taking certain photos because you think you should, or because someone has told you to do it in a certain way? Are there elements of your photography that you don't really like doing?
People write to me every day saying, “I just love photography, how can I become a professional?”
And many of those that have already started, tell me, “I seem to be running around like crazy, for very little money!”
Do you know what the most difficult thing is about photography? Do you know what holds you back most of all? It's not the camera, or the person you're photographing, or lack of experience – it’s CONFIDENCE. Get that right, and the rest will just follow – trust me.
Having spent many years teaching people to be photographers, this word crops up constantly. In every seminar that I have trained, the key thing I have to deal with is people’s lack of confidence in themselves and their ability to sell their pictures.
Ask those little things about photography that have been niggling you!! I don’t know the meaning of life but I do know a lot about taking pictures so ask away!
