Girls Rule In Karolin Klueppel’s Series ‘Mädchenland’
German photographer Karolin Klueppel spent nine months in the village of Mawlynnong in north-east India documenting the girls of the Khasi society. The Khasi are a matrilineal society. Here, traditionally it is the girls who are of particularly importance and who play an exposed role in the family. The line of succession passes through the youngest daughter.
In this series she concentrates on the girls themselves in contextualizing them in their everyday physical environment through a sensitive balance between documentation and composition.
How to Price Your Services as a Photographer
Perhaps the most vexing thing for any new photographer is pricing. There aren’t hard and fast rules, and while you want to make a decent amount of money commensurate with your skills, you don’t want to risk turning away potential clients with prices that are too high. Many photographers start out with fairly moderate prices, but after time passes and shooters hone their skills, the question becomes, “Should I raise my prices?” Of course, the better you get, the more you should charge because you have a deeper understanding of your craft and you can make better images.
