What was the first photo you sold?
« on: August 01, 2014, 04:20:19 PM »
I was digging through my old photos and found my first sale, so I thought it would be interesting to see what other people's first paid pictures looked like.  In my case, I no longer shoot fashion, but it was an interesting genre.  I sold this photo to the clothing designer for $100 and a 8x10 print to the model for $40, if I remember correctly.

I only shoot at ISO 100 with perfect technique - should I get a Nikon?

I could not live with myself if I accepted money from the model. The decent thing to do would be to buy here a few decent meals.....
The best camera is the one in your hands

She was actually one of those naturally thin girls - her Mom and brother were also rail thin even though they ate plenty.
