Hey everyone, I am not a photographer, but I do have a passion for the art. I've been lurking around here checking out all of your pictures and I just wanted to compliment you all on the enormous talent that I've seen here

I was wondering how you all got started. I would love to get into the photography business, but unfortunately I never took any classes or anything and I have no idea how to go about getting into it.

Thanks for any replies and keep up the awesome work!

~Sara

Thanks for the compliments!!

You are very welcome to join us here it doesn't matter how much experience you have! This is a great way to learn...!!

I never took any photography classes and now I'm doing it for a living. I just taught myself and practiced a ton....

Photography is something that just takes lots and lots of practice!!
I don't think you have to take classes for it. I believe that if you are truly talented in photography, you will learn on your own all the technicalities.

I have always loved taking pics, but I didn't start doing photography..like the professional looking setups until my daughter was born last July. Since then I've really developed a passion for it and I've just practiced my butt off!! And my business has really taken off and it's so great!!

I learned just by doing a lot of reading and by getting more experienced photographers to critique my pictures and tell me what areas needed improving.

You should have seen my earliest work....it's sad, sad, sad. And what's hilarious is that I thought they were awesome!! HAHA!
But that's part of the reward....looking back to see how much you have improved.

I hope you'll join us here. Feel free to jump in and request critiques on your photos. There's plenty of very talented ladies here that would be more than willing to help you out with any questions you have.

Hope to see you around!
