No sales, what I'm doing is wrong

Sometimes people asking for help are just hoping they need to change a setting or something.  They don't really want to WORK at it.

 

Got to agree with this. Treat it almost like a side business (which is particularly realistic given you'll likely run at a loss for years at first). I put a large majority of my free time into doing this because I have a passion for photography and it keeps me from being idle mainly. I guess if you don't have the stamina to work at it like that then the rewards theoretically will be lower, but it is up to you.

Some of these people only barely know which way to point the camera.  Subtleties such as depth of field escape them.

 

 

So true. I remember when I went from a point and shoot to a SLR. My husband knew what the settings did. I asked to use his camera (film) and asked him what the settings meant so I could take the shots I wanted, the effects I desired.  Which were portraits of our daughter lying on a large nearly black horizontal tree limb among gorgeous bright yellow autumn leaves. The light was spectacular.
I still remember his teachings about depth of field, invaluable information. Also shutter speed, in relation to pointing the camera at anything that moved. I had a desire to know how to do it right before ever taking a photograph.
All these years later, what he told me stuck.
