"I don't mean to treat this as a chatroom but your site and links have meant that I now SEE with a little more clarity. I'm still struggling with electronic imagery, my focus is now on a website rather than the 'wet' printing that is so time consuming. Talk me out of it. " - M. B.
I can't talk you out of it. Just don't expect to sell photographs through this photonic influx of bits unless:
a) you are famous (and I don't think you are since I haven't heard of you, though I haven't heard of everyone famous)
b) you are infamous (and I don't think you are since you are using your real name)
c) you were once famous (see items a and b)
d) you are selling pictures of something sleezy (this is the most promising avenue in the current climate)
e) you don't care a hoot about selling anything, you just want to have a sort of "show and tell" spot in the world that is all your own.
