I am convinced that with practice and a bit of creativity, almost anyone can take a great picture using a fairly inexpensive digital camera. I took a bunch of shots of the food
at my restaurant, and while I'll stop short of saying that they are amazing, I will say that my employer was absolutely overjoyed with the results. The point is, I have no formal training. I just love to be creative.
There is time and place for professional photography (as well as a price). However, there is also a huge unmet need for visual content, and there aren't enough paid photographers in the world to fill it. So, get your camera, brush up on your technique, and start taking pictures.
