This week we are doing a themed showed all about selling your photography and we kick things off with a question about time spent selling vs. time spent shooting:

Question One – Shooting vs. Selling

John Ellington from NY writes: I’d like to know what percentage of your time you spend selling and what percent you spend shooting? I’ve heard that to be successful you have to spend more time selling than you do shooting.

Scott: You are correct. You do spend more time selling than you do shooting. I have to spend everyday on the phone doing the smile and dial. I’ve been at it for awhile so it’s easier than it used to be but ultimately it’s your job to sell your photography. Expect about 80% of the time selling and 20% of your time shooting.

This week we kick things off with a question about the best aperture for portraits:

Question One – Best Aperture for Portraits

Debbie Hume from Long Island, NY asks: I know this is very basic but I’ve struggled with knowing which aperture is best for general portrait photography. How much depth of field do I really need?

Tamara: There is no one perfect aperture for portraits. It depends on the look you want to go for. Shooting wide open is very popular these days to blur the background and separate your subject from the background. It will also depend upon how far you are away from your subject, the lens length, the distance they are from the background.

Scott: It depends but typically the style today is to shoot a bit more wide open. Continue reading

This week we kick things off with a question about non-typical things to photograph in Las Vegas:

Question One – What to Photograph in Las Vegas

I’ll be in Las Vegas in late July for a friends bachelor party. With nothing planned during the day I was wondering if you had any spots you would recommend for non typical (something other than casinos) day time shooting in or around the city. Patrick Edgett from Riverside, CA

Scott: Very popular is the ghost town of Nelson Nevada. Another place to consider is Red Rocks which is a State Park. Downtown Vegas during the day would be great for street photography. Springs Reserve is another great spot and if you’re into bird photography check out Henderson. Continue reading
