As far as subject matter, Shot what you love, you will have a much more pleasant experience. Unless you want to be a full time photog, Then you need to learn to shoot what everyone else loves and like it ;)

What I love is nature. But, in the same breath, it seems not to be what everyone else loves. I'm trying to find that balance between the two. Thank you very much...I believe you have helped me think outside of the box, yet still shoot what I love & others will love as,well. :)

Im sure there are community Photo classes. Camera clubs etc. I teach In Los Angeles but not free Nor cheap. Mine are 3 days with Models in studio with One full day of Photoshop tips and tricks. I would start off with maybe a Jr Collage?.. There are Photo clubs everywhere., some silly Im sure and some better. Many courses on the internet. As eric said. Shoot what turns you on BUT.... If your here to eventually try to earn some money thats another ballgame and personally where I go and what my advice is based on, Folks who want More. Hobbyists will find there own way. And like I say and have been saying for 11 years In Micro and  doing stock since the late 60's as a profession  is look and study whats for sale here and elsewhere. Find a Niche".Scour the sites. scour Magazines for trends, There are some trends that have always done well since day 1. But they involve people. Lots and Lots of folks Just don't want to shoot people.......Never figured that out. Oh well.

 

My personal Fav work Is hard hitting Emotional Portraiture [i prefer seniors] and what I generally teach But..I do Bugs,Landscapes.Products,architecture,food, Fineart Painting etc,etc,etc you name it I have some in my Port. I always wanted to be a one stop shop for buyers and that thinking has worked Pretty well for me.

 

But , I also must say, If I were starting out I wouldn't ever put all my eggs in One basket and do Just this or just that. and for sure not limit your output to Microstock. make it "PART" of what you do. best advice I can give anyone. I love flowers after 56 Years of shooting everything from Album Covers to Insects. But if thats all I did. I would get bored very quick.

 

Good Luck. wanna talk More just PM me.

 

BTW...don't shoot Bugs,insects,People or animals from behind.

Stock in any way shape or form is about commercial Value. otherwise what we have is flicker. And this ain't flicker contrary to what some think. LOL
