Hey people of the Internet! The other day I was thinking about a way to make some money, to buy maybe a new camera or laptop, or to travel somewhere.
As you may have noticed there are no ads in my post, so I don’t make any money from my blog. I live in a small village, so there are not a lot of places where I could work, if there any open positions, I don’t have a driving license, so I use the bus to go to school or where I want to go, I don’t like to always ask my parents. Stated all this, I thought the best option was a job I could do online from my laptop at home, my WiFi isn’t the best, but it works. I looked around for some works to do on the web, I am on fiverr, but i get no orders. I go to school, so I don’t have a lot of time to spend on a full time job, online or not.
While I was in Iceland with my friend Michel, of whom I took some photos, I was talking about this with him and he told I could sell my photos, like do portrait photography. He told I’m a good photographer, I don’t really see it that way, maybe my self-esteem is too low, but I tent to find all the small errors in my photos and I compare myself to more expert photographers, so that makes me feel even less good. I don’t think doing portrait photography is a bad idea, but I wouldn’t know how to advertise myself. Another problem is that I wouldn’t know how much to ask or if I should make the client pay for hours of work or a set amount per photo. I think the second idea is the best, but how much should I ask, 2$ per photo? too high? too low? I’m really not sure.
Another thing that blocks me is the fact that I’m shy, so I think I will feel awkward to give instructions to a person I just met. I don’t even know how to direct a model or someone for him/her.
That’s all! Thank you for reading, I hope you liked it! If you did please consider subscribing and sharing this post with your friends.
