Another step down the road

When I started this blog two and a half years ago, I intended it to be the diary of my photographic journey deeper into photography and to let interested readers participate in my learnings. Sometime down the road I started my two series “Instant Inspirations” and “Street Photography Quick Tips” to empower others to expand their photographic skills. As I wrote in the “About Me” of this blog, I had the hope to eventually one day generate some earnings from my photography to pay for my GAS (gear acquisition syndrome). While the GAS is pretty much cured by now, I finally did reach that other milestone.

Yesterday I held my first individual photography coaching session. We started with a two hour theory lessons around camera settings and controls and some photography 101, after which we roamed the streets of Nuremberg for a good 6 hours for a lot of practical photography exercise. We had a great time on a beautiful Mayday (May 1st is a public holiday in Germany) and I enjoyed myself passing on my knowledge of and love for photography. Doing this the first time, I learned myself so much about handling such an all day tutoring, which required plenty of on the spot adjustments, despite so much of preparation that I have put into this venture. I did get great feedback though, and in the end collected my very first ever photographic revenue.

With plenty of input to adjust and enhance my coaching concept, I will sure do this again once the next opportunity arises. It was another step down the road of my journey deeper into photography.

The photograph was taken with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4 , image specs 1/320sec @ F/9 and ISO 200, 12mm focal length. Jpg out of camera.
