I have just got back home with an 8x10 print of a photo I took of my Cousin's little girl a couple of months ago.

Now, I usually get my smaller prints (6x8's and 8x10's) done at the local Rabbit photo (I take anything any bigger to a wonderful pro lab here in Adelaide).  I probably drop in at least once every couple of weeks to get photos printed as they do a great job, they are very convenient and the price is not too bad.

What caught my attention today was that one of the regular staff there asked me about the photo I was picking up - They asked me "Is this a Job or someone you know?"

Well, a question like this coming from a photo lab is a pretty decent compliment!  These are people who see hundreds (probably thousands) of photos a day and they asked me if it was a professional Job!  If the local photo lab that prints thousands a day is asking me this question then they mush have seen the quality of the photo - I am starting to get noticed.

Hey, who doesn't want to be noticed by people in the indusrty when you have a passion for what you do.  I guess it is time for me to finish getting my paperwork together and start promoting myself and pick up a few paid jobs.

And for the record, the photo I had printed today can be seen on my photo blog
