New on the block - Hello everyone

Nylakatara2013
Hello, I have so enjoyed reading everyone's postings and reviewing your work! I am new at the stock world and joined DT in may. While I continue having a significant learning curve, I have stuck with it with enthusiasm. I started with photo submissions which resulted in a high rate of declines, then decided to start submitting my watercolor paintings, which I am also new at this year and it has resulted in a significantly improved acceptance rate so for now until I take some classes in photography, I will focus on watercolors! This week I had four sales. Funny after being in the professional world working in a non related occupation earning in the six figures, the $1.40 I made this week made me much happier than my bi-weekly work paycheck!

Yadamons, thank you! I seem to get my watercolors accepted, but have a tough time with my photographs, your photographs look great. Thanks again.

Hi Nylakatara2013, A warm welcome to DT. I am like you, new to stock photography and have been in DT for a few weeks. I know what you mean about getting excited about 40c (my first sale!). May I ask you, with your watercolor paintings, how do you prepare it for DT. Do you photograph it or get it professionally scanned? Cheers !
