How to Make Money With Your Point And Shoot Camera

Are you intimidated with photographers who are holding very expensive professional cameras with big long lenses? I'm sure you also hate terms such as aperture, shutter speed, f stops, while balance, depth of field, and what not. Why? It is because you only have a point and shoot camera and you don't care about such things. It might be that you do not have that big amount of money to buy a professional camera. Moreover, you don't know how to use those big black things big long lenses connected to it anyway. The good news for you is that you can also make money using your point and shoot camera. That is because you can also capture great shots using your cheap camera.

Before talking about how to make money with point and shoot camera, let's first talk bout how to capture great shots using your simple camera. Though it is true that digital point and shoot cameras have limitations compared to professional ones, it is still very effective in capturing great photographs. Another thing is that unlike last 2001 that point and shoot cameras are typically low quality, digital point and shoot cameras now are getting so much better. A good shot taken by this kind of camera cannot even be guessed that it was not taken by a professional one. One good reason is that point and shoot cameras are visual device that can capture the beauty that we see. And though it does not have all the power of DSLRs, its little power is enough to capture and show great photos.

However, before you can even take good shots using your point and shoot camera, you must have at least basic photography skills (you can search online for so many basic photography lessons out there). Specifically, you need to learn the art of visual composition. This kind of art is also used in other visual arts such as painting, video shooting, illustrations, etc.

Okay, let's talk about some of them. The following are visual composition techniques that you can apply using a cheap point and shoot camera:

1. Rule of thirds

First thing that you have to bear in mind in visual composition is the rule of thirds. In here, you divide the whole page into 9 equal boxes with imaginary lines. it is in the intersection of those imaginary lines that you must place your subject.

2. Simplicity

Frame your subject in a plain background. This gives more impact to the subject and rest to the eye from cluttered backgrounds.

3. Close ups and depth of field

Digital point and shoot cameras have macro mode that you can take advantage of. This is usually a little flower symbol found in your camera (you can refer to your camera manual to find it). In taking close up shots, you can make your subject sharp (not blurred) and your background blurred.

4. Use your Photoshop skill It's also a great advantage if you know how to use a photo editing software like Photoshop. This can allow you to fix some problem your photos may have. You can also create good effects that even photos taken from a point and shoot camera can look good.

See? Sometimes, it’s not really in the camera. It is in the person who is using the camera.

Now let's talk about how to make money with your point and shoot camera. Honestly, making money with point and shoot camera is not really that different with making money with a professional or semi-pro ones. It's only that making money with point and shoot camera is more possible online. Anyone who will hire you to document their event and see you using only point and shoot camera will surely be disappointed. The good thing is, photo documentation is not only the way to make money using a camera. Here is the internet and we must take advantage of it. I discussed a lot of things here but the best answer to my question how to make money with point and shoot camera is to sell your photos online. That is because with your good shots, there's no way for them to know that you only used a point and shoot camera. What they only see is the good photos you took and they will buy them.

There are so many websites that are waiting for you to submit your photos then sell them. This is called stock photography. Many designers buy photos from online databases because this will save them time and money instead of hiring a photographer. So if I were you, take advantage of this opportunity to make money with your cheap but very useful point and shoot camera.

For some stockphoto sites, you might need to spent a bit by paying copyrights, online spaces, or online store. But what is spending just a bit if it will cause you to earn more right?
