come with a portrait shoot?

any help or knowledge would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks Kevin. The last few portraits I shot brought from $200 to $300 for several sheets of 8x10's, 5x7's and/or wallets (I print my own on an Epson 2200). My wife drums up more work that I care to accept by showing a couple of sample books to friends, neighbors, relatives and co-workers. I've been asked and have refused to do weddings, senior photos and "prop" photos as I don't know or care much about those areas of photography right now. My enthusiasm is for portraits, and since I make my living in other areas I only do what I like with a camera.

There's a lot of information floating around the "Pro Digital" forum, you could probably learn a lot more there.

I appreciate your kind words. Good luck, and post some of your work. I'd enjoy seeing it.
