Hi guys. I went to a friends baptism and took some pictures for them cause they asked me to. This is the third time I have 'practiced' with them. Here's one: AAnd here's a guest that was there And so here's my question: This family keeps having me do thier photos for them and each time they have offered me money. I have turned them down each time because I refuse to take money for somehting I haven't even near perfected yet, not that I ever expect to 'perfect' it. This time they are insisting that I take some but I don't want to because I'm not into ripping people off, and they are friends. That being said, at the baptism people there told me that they had seen my flickr and they want me to do pictures for them. They don't know I'm not that good... but I do. SO, I love the practice and am happy (quite addicted actually) to take pictures just to keep me using my camera in different situations with different subjects. However, it does take my time to take and edit the pictures for these people. At what point do I accept the payment when it's offered? When I feel I've improved enough? Or when it's a request to have me do photos for someone I don't know and they are happy with the result? HELP. I'm an idiot when it comes to these things? Sorry so long.
