My photography skill sucks so badly that I'd be embarassed to provide sample shots.
With that attitude, your skills won't get better. You have to think: Hey, I'm pretty good, but if I change this and that, and try to approach that differently, I could be even better!
Look at your own images carefully and ask yourself: what could I have done to make this image look better? Ask others to comment on your images, try to get some constructive criticism. Perhaps you could even find some (semi)pro's to look at your photos, and give you some tips & tricks. Read books, John Freeman and Scott Kelby are highly recommended (by me
). And most important, always try to shoot outside your own boundaries. Try to get that little bit extra, that tiny detail in the photo. Always set new, higher boundaries for yourself. Do that, and you may well become a professional photographer, after *some* time...
Still doing all of that myself as well, the boundaries and all that. Was given the tip by a freelance photographer who has shot some of the
most beautiful photos I've ever seen.
