This past Monday I wrote a piece titled "Six Things Every Beginning Photographer Should Know" . One of the points I made was the importance of sometimes shooting for free. Here are just a few excerpts of reader responses:
"Shoot for free? Really lol?"
"Shooting for free is what's wrong with the photography business."
"Go ahead shoot for free. You set your price point and show how much you value your work that way."
So I thought it would be worthwhile to explain what I meant.
