Advise to create a blue sky with no editing
This article is for new photographers to stock footage and dreamstime! The world of stock footage is not the same as regular photography so here are tips for people that love to use Photoshop and editing software. The best advise I can give is stop using editing tools period!
Your camera has all the settings it needs to capture the true essence of a blue sky and nobody in the editing world on this site likes to see pictures enhanced with color!
You usually will get a rejection just by making your nature pictures extra pretty😉 All the pictures on my site show bright blue sky and none of them have been edited! In fact no picture on my site has been edited!🤗
I use to waste soooo much time editing before I knew the system on here and when I stopped editing dreamstime started accepting all my pictures- barely rejecting any now!
It took a lot of experimentation so I thought I should share this news with everyone new on here... stop wasting time on editing and enhancing color and leave it natural!
Enjoy your day off when it's rainy and miserable outside instead of sitting all day on your computer creating more color correcting edits that will just be rejected in the long run!
So what is my simple advise to you?? Again, you just wait for nature to paint the sky so many shades of blue, and leave your camera to capture it!
You can play with the settings on your camera, and see how sharp the blue colors in nature turn out on each setting and shoot away!
Designers that want to buy your pictures really want you to leave the picture raw and natural because they want to be the ones editing a vision they already created that you are not involved in 😉
Your job is to create the first layer or art for them and let them do all the work that is a total waste of time for a stock image photographer !
Your job is to be outside and capture nature at its finest and then spend the time on your computer uploading .... uploading .... and uploading!
Who has time to edit when your a one person show? Shoot quality only and you don't need to fix anything! Only editing I suggest is when people are in the pictures and that article will be on a separate blog😉
Take care !
