Actually Beginning to Become a Stocker of sorts...

Well i have had Dreasmtime now for about a year and in it I have learned a tremendous amount about photography and editing. I began by submitting whatever photos I thought looked appealing, I think as most of us do. After a round of rejections I gave up for awhile. I then embarked on a 9 month journey where I traveled North America from Hawaii to Florida to Washington to Alaska and Vermont all around Canada and back. I think I must have take a million pictures but with all of my traveling I had no time to edit anything. I am now settled near Orlando, Florida for the time being and have had a chance to go over it all and with that I have began honing my photoshop skills. Within this month I have gone from below 30 percent acceptance to above 50, and my acceptance rate for this month is 80. i have increased my stock from about 110 to almost 250. I feel like dreamstime has forced me to look at the more technical side of photography which has helped my photography all around. I am so excited to upload more pictures of my travels and see my portfolio grow! Hopefully more sales will soon follow!
