To Leap, Or Not To Leap
Over the past year or so I’ve been trying my best to practice taking pictures. The yoga studio I take photos for has helped so much in that way along with friends who have asked me to take pictures for them. I think I’ve found my favorite type of photography: portraits and lifestyle.
It’s kind of amazing how much the types of photography can vary too. They require various techniques, equipment, and set up. I think the eternal story teller in me, though, prefers doing the one-on-one type of photography because I get to know the individual(s) a little better. I get to tell a little bit of their story through photos.
Which leads me to wonder if I should get serious about registering and opening up my own little side business. At least I’d make a little extra money on the side to help pay for a list of items (sadly nothing exciting). Attempting to do so, however, requires a lot of paperwork, business plan, tax knowledge, and more. I’m sure I’ll even report a loss the first year, which is typical.
So is it worth it? I don’t know. But my gut sure thinks it is. So stay tuned.
The above picture was taken by me a few weeks ago of one of the yoga teachers whose class I try to attend weekly. He was so much fun to photograph!
Oh and if you do have any advice on starting a small business, please let me know!
