...there will be lots of bargaining in the future. But keep in mind, that can be used to your advantage.
Hm. Mind sharing a few insider tips? I mean,being the other gender and all that?
Well, my first question is are you shooting and adjusting in RAW?
Yup. I learned pretty quickly to intensely dislike JPEG and the limited amount of adjustments that format gives me.
If so, you can make multiple copies of the RAW file (in separate folders) and adjust each for foreground, background, pot, etc, then edit them in Photoshop and use them in a composite photograph masking in/out what you do/don't want. You can manipulate your existing photos and learn a lot of learning about underwater shots before investing.
Now, then, this really isn't my cup of tea. Coming from a long experience with film before finally going digital in '09, heavy 'shopping isn't what fits my temperament and ideas for my own photography. I have little problems cloning out small insignificant details, using HDR techniques to capture a larger tonal range than my sensor can capture in one shot or making the occasional composite. But generally I don't like to do much more than I could in the wet darkroom. Others peoples' MMV, surely, but this is me.
Yes, there is a future for you!
Your images are like diamonds in the rough!
To realize your potential, you should immediately upgrade your equipment!
Consider a Nikon D3 or maybe a Canon 2X Magnum. Better still, one of each. A wide angle and one for marco.
Just think of the buzz in seeing all that money fly away!
Vade retro... (and don't mention C*non, I'm a NIkon guy topside )
