    Default Discuss the foundations of prosperity for photographers.

    Hello fellow photograhers,

    As photographers we are grateful for the opportunities created for us through interactions such as this forum. We are also gifted with a pair of photographic eyes and the many things that come together when enjoying this hobby. What about the areas that we can help in related humanity through solid discussion in a mature and intelligent manner for more success?

    Do we need to learn the fundamentals of prosperity
    as photographers?

    The only fundamentals of prosperity in photography I know of is:

    1. Shoot digital.
    2. Watch your costs of production.
    3. Shoot what the market wants.
    4. Distribute the photos as widely as possible.
    4. Be consistent with output and quality.

    If u are not shooting for money, just want to shoot for "success", u can try these secret formula:
    1. Lens - ultra wide <14mm
    2. Shutter - slow eg 1/15s
    3. Aperture - big eg f1.4
    4. Lighting - back light
    5. Camera - must not be Nikon Canon Leica

    But, but, what have these to do with "Foundations of Prosperity?"

    Huh? How does posperity relate to photography? Well, they both start with a "p" and end with a "y".

    Marketing, packaging....

    These days its all abt these 2 things.

    U can be the most medicore photographer ever, but if u bother to package & market urself well, even shit can be valued like gold.

    Maybe you just have to come down to our level to understand "the foundations of prosperity".

    Many thanks to all those who response especially to "student", "Sion", "Knight Ong", "Astin", "Deadpoet" and "jsbn". But I am a bit surprised as only the six of you are interested in participating in this thread. The people who can sustain prosperity hold the real components which can link with periods of their acquired wisdom and enlightenment. To put it more simply, photographers (beginners or professionals) are also human beings.

    Some of us are more fortunate enduring the test of time and with their resources can enjoy abundant prosperity while others nose off showing non intellectual life experiences and social pressures.

    We can have more deeper discussion even if you are not considering yourself as photographer but a human being.

    What is the first fundamental of prosperity?

    I do want to contribute ideas if my ideas are of any value.

    But honestly, I REALLY do not understand what you are trying to say! It is a little over my head.

    And oh! I am more than willing, at least for a little while, to try to come down to the level of the "blur photographer" called Sion. He had, in two other threads, showed what it mean to be blurred. But I am not sure if a blur leading another blur, will lead to enlightenment!

    Two other threads?

    Sorry I don't read them anymore after a reply from someone I don't interact with.

    I suggest like me you don't waste any more time in working out what a blur leading another blur will end up. Blurlightment?

    My understanding are:
    Something to do with integrity.
    Something that we have, we share rather then being selfish among photographers and human being too...

    The foundation for prosperity in photography is:
