I have been trying a new service to find local people who need photographers, called Thumbtack. I have also been a user of Yelp, and had not heard of Thumbtack previous to starting my photography business. I have to say, this site is very detailed in providing exactly what the client is asking for, and then allows professionals to bid on the jobs--providing options for the clients to choose from. This is a great example of a site, although it is at a cost to those bidding, to find local jobs they might otherwise not be able to connect with. It also will help stimulate a local economy by targeting clients and professional in the same area. All in all, I look forward to booking more sessions through Thumbtack, in addition to Yelp, FaceBook, and my blog.
In other news... I got a NEW FLASH! The Canon 600EX-RT, and although I have not had much time to play around with my new equipment--I am so pleased with my initial results. Take a look at the side by side results. Dramatic changes in a very low light situation. I will do a full post when I've had more time to explore.
Another new addition to my ever growing photography bag is this gem from Mollie's Lil Makings Etsy store, I can't wait to use my puppy camera buddy to my next family photo shoot. This should make the task of getting children to look at the camera much, much easier! I plan on getting different camera buddies in the future.
Thanks, Mollie's Lil Makings
