Identify your niche

It is important to identify the areas of photography for which you have a knack. Do your strengths and interests lie in shooting food, fashion or nature? Focus on these so you can find your style, polish your skills further and deliver striking results. Then, zone in on the factors you can improve easily. Would upgrading your equipment make a dramatic difference to your images? Would a better mobile phone give you more quality photos? Would tweaking the lighting with a filter or two provide a markedly superior outcome? These little changes could go a long way towards increasing the overall quality and demand of your final product.

Define your audience

Once you have developed a specialty, it helps define your target audience. Are you looking to attract food bloggers or fashion designers? You can then ensure your output maps to their expectations and is of a consistent quality. Investing some time in studying what your target audience might aspire to in the future, is also a helpful activity so you can ensure long-term success.

Build a portfolio

Keeping a portfolio ready will be of great help, as you will have a prepared stock of images you can sell online.
