I am fairly new to photography; I have been shooting with my 7d for a few months. What I'm wondering is what the best way to get into selling photos would be? I shoot local sporting events and have done some senior pictures, but I also want to photograph Maine as we enter fall and get into winter. I was thinking that personally creating a website where I can sell photos directly to clients would be my best bet, but I'd love to hear the thoughts of the experienced sellers out there. What I'd like to know ultimately is works better for those of you who shoot in a similar manner: Microstock photography or a personal website? Thanks in advance! P.S. I hope I don't upset those of you "photo gods" who believe that: this site, the web, photography, and the world are all in the midst of, as I have coined it, 'the great collapse' (yeah, I read your meltdown thread). P.P.S. Chill out - embrace the new photog's, help them, and allow them to develop as artists themselves.. You needed help when you started getting into photography, yes?
