Turning Pro!

    Newer Older

    Today I took the plunge and upgraded my free Flickr account to the Flickr Pro account. Now that I've "gone pro," I expect I'll be making lots of money with my camera in the near future. That's the way it works, isn't it?

    The camera is an old Clarus MS-35 35mm camera that belonged to my grandparents. The $100 bills were printed by the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

      Thank you. Someday when I'm rich and famous you can tell people you knew me "back when he first turned pro."

      I knew him when...

      For me going pro just meant I paid them. But it sure is fun

      Great shot! BTW now to see what I spy here

      Anything I can do to further a game... ;-)

      Everyone Else: The Are You Game? group has a discussion thread titled Game: I spy.

      Wow. I won't ask where the money came from. I'll only ask for the money itself.

      No problem. Where do you want me to send it? Is a check okay?

      Your backdrops are expensive. How many hundred is that per square foot?

      I think I counted $2400 visible in the photo. Unfortunately, that's wasn't my money to keep. Bummer, huh?

      Ive been thinking of getting a pro account.

      is it that much better?

      I thought so. I never worried about the 100 MB upload limit because I always reduce my photos to 800x600 pixels before uploading. (I have a 800x600 digital photo frame at home.) At least once that I can remember, though, I asked for help with a photo-related problem and was unable to upload the photo exactly as it came out of the camera. After uploading the 3888 x 2592 photo, Flickr reduced it to 1024 x 683. And as I got more and more photos uploaded I wanted to have more than three sets for sorting purposes. And the Pro Account wasn't really very expensive.

      The down side . . . I haven't started making lots of money with my camera yet. ;-)
