Hey, this is a pretty nice photo! If you would permit me to tell you about something really neat I just discovered and am having a blast with, I recently learned that photographers can sell their photos on microstock photography websites like the ones I listed below. Read on if you are interested. :) It is a pretty cool system: companies can cut costs by buying from microstock sites rather than paying their own photographers, and you get paid every time an individual or company buys your photo(s). The signup for these kinds of accounts is free because they keep a bit of every sale. Also, companies don't get your copyright, so they have to buy your photo once for every time they use it! The photos never leave the microstock site, and will earn you passive income whenever they sell for years to come. :D Also, I do understand that there are photographers out there (already met two) who got upset by my mentioning this opportunity. If you don’t appreciate this message, that is okay, you have a right to your opinion just like everyone else, and I respect that. Already a bunch of people have appreciated my telling them about this neat opportunity. One very nice guy I met was already involved with microstock, and he has helped me with my own efforts to sell my photos! :) So please don’t get upset, and even if you don’t appreciate this, that is okay, I totally respect you for your opinions. I know that while some people don’t like my idea, many, many more have told me that they appreciated the info. I apologize if you get this message twice, I try to avoid that. :) Well, have fun! (By the way, so you don’t get surprised like I did, Crestock and Shutterstock are tougher to get into since they have a skill requirement, but they pay more.) So perhaps you can give this a go next time you find yourself with some free time. :) Enjoy your summer! :)
-Revan

I love this picture. Cameras are such interesting subjects, they have so many little details and buttons and curves and lines...

Right now, I'm dreaming of owning one.
Hopefully, very soon. I'd be even more inspired to improve my skills,
and to be more than just an amateur photographer. ;__;

Nice work, by the way. :aww:

Very nice photograph, I love the contrasts and composure you used. Yashica's are fun camera's, I have an on Super- TL that had the built in meter quit working a few years ago, but it's still a great cam. Great work! :D

I possess 4 Yashica SLRs: Yashica FX-7, Yashica FX-3 Super, Yashica FX-3, and a Yashica FR II. Also 2 Yash RFs: Yashica Electro 35 GSN Rangefinder. All are working except the FX-3 it fires the shutter everytime I advance the film. :(
