does anyone else find that it's getting harder and harder to make a buck as a photographer these days? when I bought my first slr 6 years ago, I didn't really think i'd be any good. 3 years later I was told I should start taking seriously 3 more years later I own two cameras 4 lens' 2 flash units, tripod, and lighting. The kicker is in the last two years, 5 people that had no real interest in photography, went out, got themselves digi cams, and almost immediatly started taking shots as good if not better than mine. Digital photography is taking anyone with an eye (which i'm not dissing at all) and making them pro's in a very short period of time because it's so easy to learn with a digi cam. Now, I'm all for teaching people photography. I love it, much like everyone here. But where do you find you retain the "edge" over the competition? Is there anyway to retain that edge? Is it just innevitable that with technology, we lose an edge and are forced to think of new ways to corner a market? At this point I think I'm really glad I have a day job. And the more and more pro's that keep emerging the harder it's gonna be to take the plunge as a full time photographer. I really need to get a fisheye too. Damnit.
