I often get strong praise for my photos and I’m glad people get something out of what I’m doing. With that said, I need the praise translating into paid work far more often than it does. Without the income

I’ve been thinking about calling it a day and selling the camera gear. I’ve been taking photos since I was around thirteen, so I’ve had a pretty good run. I love photography, but if I were to stop now, whilst saddening, wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. However, as said here I’ve decided to kind of tear it all down and rebuild, so to speak.

I think that, regardless of one’s experience, you’re never too good to relearn stuff and rethink your processes.

With that all said, here’s a photo I took recently. I was playing around with self-portraits and motion. I could say that I’m exploring a sense of self, but with this photo I don’t feel that that’s quite the case.

This is my submission into Leanne Cole‘s “Monochrome Madness” for this week. Participating is pretty straightforward and something I recommend. If you do, then include the tag “monochrome-madness” in your post.
If not participating, then at the least check out Leanne’s photography as well as what other people submit.

A lot of what people are submitting will likely end up here.

I hope you enjoy.

    I love the image, low what you have done with it. Making money from photography is almost impossible, there are so many people trying to do the same. It is part of the reason I stopped trying. Now I just enjoy it. It is fun again.

    • I’m aware. I just wish those that who can give me paid work would stop being so willing to praise my work and then go silent when following up on getting said work.

      I’ll get it eventually though.
