Take your photography to the next level. Get paid to take photos with the following tips:

  1. Any camera will do. Your iPhone, Android, DSLR, point and shoot, etc. But keep in mind that higher quality images and shooting in RAW are easier to manipulate, so maybe ditch lesser quality cameras from your old Motorola Razr.
  2. Purchase Adobe Lightroom to begin modifying your photos lighting like the pros.
  3. Adobe Photoshop is another great program that is beneficial if you are a perfectionist and want to remove the imperfections in your photos.
  4. Timing is everything. Some photographers get SUPER LUCKY when they can show up to a location, snap a photo, and not have two hundred people in the background. Most of the time, you need patience because those people taking the 300th selfie together are very self-centered and don’t realize that there are other people waiting patiently for the moment to take a photo. But for less wait times and to expedite your time at a location, get there early or stay late. Be prepared to run on a lack of sleep in order to get the shot you are looking for.
