No, I am most certainly not charging. This is just a hobby.
I have huge limitations at the moment in the way of lenses, as I am using a rubbish point and shoot. I will agree that my crops are fairly bad.
I really try and get my shot right the first time, but composing on a screen that is reflecting everything into my face is a bit difficult. Not impossible.
I don’t really understand the Ken Rockwell hate, he has a few good ideas, and they are worth considering. (That said, there is some real WTF material in there also.)
I am currently working towards a real DSLR. I’ll have a lot more control and a better set of lenses.
This is my first 9 months of actually trying to learn to take photos. I’m sure that after a few years, I’ll be far better at composing.
