I have always loved photography, but recently I have become obsessed! I take my camera everywhere and take photos of anything! Now I want to take my hobby (obsession) to the next level and possibly become someone's apprentice and learn from a professional. I am interested in children's portraits, pet portraits and event photography. So where do I start? How does a person become an apprentice? Another slightly related question....how long did it take before your photos became consistent in quality? It seems I take a million photos only to have a few good/great ones! Thanks as always for the great advice!!!
