60D with 70-200 and 430II flash at high speed sync; San Jose. A little LR5.x and some Define

OP, show us your web site and examples of your work.

Have you created a business plan?

How many portrait photographers are in your geographic area?
How many wedding photographers?
How many corporate/commerce photographers?
How many fashion photographers?
How many sports photographers?

Does your web site show your studio?

Do you blog about your specialty?

What is the annual household income of your geographic area? NYC prices would not be the same prices as Hoxie, KS

Are you volunteering at your County Veterans Centers by doing Vets portraits for LinkedIn?

I plan to go back to the baseball park soon, and, will bring a monopod.When I snapped the pics above, I was curled up in my seat, knee raised to use as a foundation, one hand under the lens, holding my breath.

Somewhere on the forum I read that the newest version will go to 2000mm, a good crazy.

I wish the extended zoom feature was available in raw not just jpg.

I used Define to clean up the noise.

As with a lot of photography things, it depends.

Do you have style that you've seen and liked?

I've been watching the Peter Hurley headshot vids on youtube and working to emulate the bright white background style, but, also have always liked the dark, shadowy style
