Trying to Get Portraits
As I have said previously this blog is going to change, and part of that change will be me trying to get a portrait business off the ground. Not easy, really, it isn’t.
There are so many things to do, but then you can’t do one bit because you are waiting for something else. Then you find that can’t do that, because something else isn’t ready. It gets a bit frustrating.
So the thing that everything seems to be depending on is a portfolio. I need images. I need more images than what I have now. To get more images I need to find people, or girls, or boys really, who will let me take photos of them.
Until I get the folio, I can’t do my website, business cards, or any kind of advertising. I can do some background stuff, but I need to get more.
So I need to find some people who want to have me take their photo. I need to find some volunteers. People who would like to have a fine art image. I need around 5 people, I know I shouldn’t do this, but I will do it for free, and give the people 5 digital images. So if anyone out there is willing to let me try photographing them, send me an email.
Here is another image, but I have done the second one in Color Efex and used the fog preset.
So the business plan is coming along. I’ve worked out my prices, well most of them. I have to get some prices for framing, and decide whether or not to do canvas prints. I will have to work out exactly how I want my website set out, probably much the same as it is right now, though, I might change it at some point. I also need to get a voucher done to draw people in and get them to let me take their images. So much to do.
