First accepted image from new lens bought from first payout

A short while ago my balance went over the magic $100 for the first time and I was able to request a payout. I put the money towards a lens I have been wanting for some time, a Sigma 10-20mm zoom.

This is the first image from that lens to be accepted on Dreamstime.

Not content with just the one purchase I yesterday ordered a Nikon DX 40mm micro. That arrived this morning - I have not even opened the box yet. I bought that for the macro facility, and also for the lightness and image quality that should come from a prime lens. Hopefully that will provide many more acceptable images.

Your business strategy sounds like a page out of the Internet start up book. ;-)

New equipment purchases certainly give one an incentive to produce more work to pay for them. The trick is to keep the earnings ahead of the purchases - certainly a tough challenge! Have fun!
