The amount of detail this lens renders is stunning:
Lots of detail, but I wanted to see a larger version!
Sorry - this one has commercial value, so I don't give away the big ones.
I'm the same way with most of mine.
Don't blame you. I've managed to make photography somewhat profitable in a day where photography has been cheapened, but it is a fight.
Well you're ahead of me there obviously, but I hope to learn more how to go about it. Because I have some amazing prints ready to sell right now...at least in my opinion and lots of folks who saw them, but chose to buy hand made jewelry and the like, instead!
At one point I decided not to worry about the commercial side of things and simply enjoy my photography. To me it is strictly a hobby and fortunately my job pays well enough to be a little bit creative on the equipment side of things as well, but I'm keeping it reasonable I admire those who can make a profit out of photography, especially in these timen. Seems like a lot of hard work to me.
Is your regular job not hard work? If I was making 6 or 7 figures from other types of work, I would still try to sell my photography. I'd also like to get into film production. But yes, photography itself has been radically cheapened and diluted in this day and age, and basically the world has 6 billion "photographers". Almost seems like a billion of them are better than I am, or at least sell more of their work than I do!
