Making Money With A Camera

Ideas On Photography Remember To Visit My Web Site At: http://www.PamelaRobertsPhotography.com Why go through Trial & Error when this program can turn around your life! Confused? Frustrated? Having a hard time?  This is better than what you have now!  Enjoy life, enjoy each moment! Let me prove to you how you can succeed. Stop earning low income through low paying jobs that lead you nowhere. I can help you change through my own experience. Get the equipment you need to take great photographs.  Take a look at these cameras, flashes, lenses, etc., Make your decisions so your ready by spring to begin!  let’s make your shooting reliable and ready to fire! Take a look at the equipment at the right and compare prices, which by the way I have the lowest prices. There are more expensive cameras that I love, but I really like these too. Again, be sure what you choose fits your needs and are inter-changeable with what you purchase. E-mail/contact me and I will help you get started. Remember I have the best prices, and even if you buy locally they return you to the manufacturer if there is an issue. Television College ads state that if you become: A) A Dental assistant B) A Paralegal C) Office administrator Then you will make  a whooping “$40,000” dollars a year if your lucky, and become: 1) Confident 2) Independent 3) In control What they fail to tell you is that: a) You will barely be able to support yourself in a job that never allows you to make a higher income! b) You will have no decision making abilities, and extremely limited independence! c) Your employer is in control of your every hour, and limited vacation time.  Not you! I really laugh out loud at these ads wondering who believes; 1)  If you spend every dime you have; 2)  take out loans; 3)  use your parents money; 4)  put them and yourselves in debt; and 5)  Spend years what? How can that work for your entire life? My alternative choice was: 1) Schedule my own hours 2) command my own prices 3) Learn everything I could regarding photography 4) Learn about business 5)  respect my clients 6) sell my photographic services By the time I had been in business for 6 or 7 years I was making twice (and more) the money that all my friends were making. They were working the same job, doing the same ol’ thing day in and day out, and dealing with the same people over and over. My job is different every day, new and exciting events daily. Making money with photography is what made my life wonderful. I traveled,...

Digital Camera Tutorial

How to take great photographs If you are heading out on a vacation, to keep your camera working and capture great photographs remember: 1). Have the countries’ outlet adapter 2). Have extra batteries, plus extra power availability and charge camera & battery…every night! 3). Bring a lens that is wide like 28mm-50mm if you’ll be close to mountains, monuments, colosseums, people, dinner tables or inside a boat. 4). Bring a telephoto lens if your near mountains, water, large animals, far away distance 5). Re-set the settings to start fresh and not have last night’s indoor settings when you are now outdoors. 6). Remember your flash has to go the distance of your telephoto. Otherwise the photo will be dark. So if your using the telephoto lens the flash may be of no use. 7). Use the histogram in your camera settings to balance the white. 8). Power is your best friend. Bring batteries in your case. 9). A small pin flash light may be needed at night to read the settings. 10.) Be on-guard and ready to shoot. Don’t miss the “shot” Have the dials Pre- set.Try F 60/ 5.6 as average, when you need to be quick.  Have...

The Importance of a good Lens

How to start a business in Photography I’ll try to include weekly specials at the top of the post so they are easier to find. BEST BUY WEEKLY SPECIALS CLICK HERE Buy the lens you really want separate from a bundle. You’ll have to buy that lens sometime. I had the most interesting portrait shoot Saturday. Interesting because I was the subject!!!  My daughter and I  were asked to be a part of a directory. We planned and picked out perfect outfits, had our hair done, rearranged our calender, and set up a time. This is a national company and you too have probably sat for them one time or another. We arrived  a few minutes early were pleasantly greeted, sat on the stool, couldn’t help but notice the dated equipment the photographer was shooting with, and politely asked him a few questions while he was arranging for our shoot. After a few equipment “glitches”, we were escorted to another room to view, choose and purchase our directory photograph. My daughter and I almost fell over with grief….we were shocked to see how terrible they were. We had made a pack with each other that we would somehow pick one just for the directory…no matter how bad!  We absolutely could NOT! We stared and tried to put behind us our imperfections but we both looked like we were 30-40 pounds FATTER! The lady stated “Oh this is exactly how you both look”! My daughter piped up and said “my mother does not look like that at all”!  Thank God!  I was really worried, and instantly depressed… I had made my mind up that I would eat blackberries for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the rest of my life! Moral to the story….YOU MUST PURCHASE CURRENT EQUIPMENT! The dated lens he was using was so old and the optics were useless. Useless, because I bet that he loses thousands of dollars a week in sales making people look 30-40 pounds heavier than they actually are. Shame on that company for cutting costs in the lens department. That is the most ridiculously stupid place to cut costs. The sure thing that makes you money. With the proper lenses you can sell twice the photographs. Have clients happy and proud of themselves when they leave, always leaving the door open for more reorders, not depressed and feeling fat and ugly. In an earlier post I stated that the optics are so important and this proves how much. later that evening my daughter grabbed her consumer camera, shot a quick candid picture of me and guess what I loved it! Why, because the lenses have become very high quality, even the consumer lenses. So, when...

Best Digital SLR Guide

Beginner DSLR Guide   1.2.2012 Basic Assumptions:   This is where you start when shooting a subject 1).    The power is fully charged 2).    The power on your camera is turned on 3.)    The flash and lens are attached with cords 4.)    The menu settings and custom features are cleared from your last shoot Cameras are precision instruments DO NOT LET THEM DROP It is imperative that you have your eye on your camera at all times, when in public. Young children, and teens love to change the buttons, and they do pick up equipment. The camera, flashes, camera cards, and lenses are not waterproof.  My suit jacket, a zip sealed plastic bag, and sweaters have all been used for protection several times.  Salty air exposure should be wiped off with a damp cloth. Never leave any equipment including a camera card exposed to dash boards or any kind of excessive heat. Strong magnetic fields (TV’s, speakers, magnets) can cause operation failure. Use a blower to remove dust on lenses, viewfinder, reflex mirror, & focusing screen Do not use organic cleaners/solvents they can...
