It can be bad when you have just photographed a show, have orders up to your eyeballs, and have no idea how to set up a bank account. And other small details like that.
On the other hand, I am having so much fun with my photography "business." And finally, I am starting to feel a little professional!! I now have my own website (www.atruefocus.com), have made money on orders, handled different circumstances where people want their prints matted or framed or the thousand other possibilities, but the biggest thing I'm excited about right now is....
I now have my own "signature"!!!! Not just a watermark that goes across the middle of my photos so people don't steal them, but my own little logo.
My wonderful friend David over at GodsCountryBoy.blogspot.com came up with this for me. He is an incredible artist (check out his art here http://godscountryboy.blogspot.com/p/artwork.html) and was willing to put this together in a huge rush so I can start shipping orders.
I have it in black or white!
|And it looks amazing and, well, professional on pictures!!!|
God is so good!! I was actually really nervous about this show that I did because it was going to be my first paid photo job, and I was just feeling a lot of pressure. So I started praying that I would just be able to relax and do this for His glory. He just really blessed the whole thing. The day was gorgeous, the pictures are fabulous, and I am happy.
For so long, I've been trying to find my "thing" that I can do to make some money right now, and eventually (Lord willing) use to bring in some extra income for my family. I tried piano teaching - not my "thing" - and a couple other different things, but photography is IT.
