Dealing with the ups and downs of stock photography
Now, with a little more experience I am having many more 'up' days with sales (and often multiple sales), and fewer down days caused by no sales or occasional rejections.
There are also 'up' days when I am inspired to get out with my camera and 'down' days where my inspiration escapes me. This journey has also left me with a few images I wish I hadn't taken (and have disabled) and many that I wish I had taken, or even had the accumulated talent and experience to take.
So, what have I learned from these ups and downs? Well, I think it is fair to say there will always be 'down' days but the aim should be to minimise the number, but whatever happens I should remember that it won't be long before an 'up' day comes to spread a little ray of sunshine.
Enjoy the rollercoaster!
