Thanks everyone! Really great advice. I have been wanting to try shooting male models, groups, and events, but I just haven’t had the connections to do that yet. All of my portraits now are just of friends, or self portraits from when I see a great opportunity but nobody is around.
I will definitely take to heart what you said about photography being more about business than anything. I know that improving and practicing my photography is what I need to do right now before ever selling my services, but business is also something I need to look into.
