I live in a small town East of Dfw area, I'm new in this business, and worst of all, very limited funds.
With that said, where does a start up photographer go to network and gain a higher level of experience. I feel I have a good eye for subjects, but I need something more to sink my teeth into. So far I've done rodeos, baseball, portraits, some nudes, and some landscapes.
Any advice here is greatly appreciated.

As a beginner in this aspect of photograpy too, I found that attending one of Rolando's workshops a huge benefit.

I learned a lot about lighting that I didn't know, I met several really talented photographers, and some wonderful models I hope to work with again.

Aren't there some Supershoots in your area ? That's the next thing I want to try.

Good luck

GG is a great place to start to sink your teeth into. You could start by showing images and getting feedback and learn from other opinions, etc.

If it's model's your after and not looking at your current work, you have to be on your game to get tfp work with quality models. I would do what it takes to get your photography to a certain level of those you admire or those that shoot model's to a caliber you want to be. Everyone starts somewhere and for most it really doesn't happen over night as earning it is half the fun anyway.

You don't have to be rich or have a lot of equiptment to get to a level of excellence.

I can suggest attending one of RG's workshops or one of ours. Either one will help in fundemental education, networking and will reduce your learning curve but you came to the right place to network and grow.

Thank You,
I see one of the shoots in Feb., I would love to go to.
I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions, just hope some bear with me.
Here is one of my images from my portfolio. To bad she just got married and quit modeling.

About that picture you posted...

Really pretty small, even for the free portfolios.

Please realize that some of us are ancient, decrepit, and nearly blind.

Make 'em bigger!

Thanks....

I was going by the guideline where it pixel size. I had a feeling they were to small. But, then this is my first trip here. I'll see what I can do.

Ok, I tried to put a bigger picture in, but I guess GG has constraints because it wouldn't allow a 400x281 size. even at less than 65K

Do you have a website, or online storage from your ISP? Throw your images on there, and hotlink them; you won't be constrained by the port script limitations here.

Another alternative which is very inexpensive is to use an image hosting service. There are a number of free ones, and some which charge a minimal amount to host a picture for say a month. One I used to use occasionally is imagehosting.com which charged 25 cents to host a picture for 30 days.

One thing to be aware of in using those services is that some of them have rules regarding nudity and may remove your image if they discover it contains nudity. Always best to ask about it up front.

I haven't really checked out why your image is so small. I am assuming you are linking to the image you have in your GG portfolio. If that's indeed the case, I thought the allowed size was up to a maximum of 600 pixels on the long edge. I don't remember exactly what the file size limit was but my impression is that it was 80 or 90 kilobytes.

Anyway, welcome to GG and good luck sorting it out. The image below is in my GG portfolio and is 600 pixels high and about 90 KB.
