You certainly have some talent. Compositions are great. You use photoshop too much sometimes. You catch a lot of bad angles of people and you don’t always get the right moment, which is fine. The good news is, it looks like you have a good rapport with people so you can just keep on playing and practicing. You’ll probably do very well making a little money here and there in the small town that you live in where your customers don’t know any better. But if you want to move into a bigger market and make a real living at it, you’ll need to improve. I recommend you find some photographers that you like and try to assist with them and, i guess go to university for it and learn more about composition and color and light. Or you could save yourself the tuition, move to NYC and start assisting for 2-300 a day, freelance and really learn. TBH, I wish I had done that instead of going to university, although it’s not a bad idea to have a degree to fall back on.
Bottom line: you have some talent, don’t let it go to your head, plateau and never really achieve anything.
