First Blog, 100 Uploads

I’ve heard of this website through a co-worker about two years ago. At first I never imagined of becoming a contributor because I didn’t think it was worth my time but I did have a passion for photography. For me Photography is a way to express myself through ideas which I could record with my 35mm, let anyone that took their time to look at them and explore the world through my eyes but for me to take photos to sell, not for me.

As soon as I upgrade my equipment from a Konica 35mm film camera to my Nikon D90 i was able to take a picture see it instantly without the trouble/cost of developing. As I started using it to take pictures for work one day I decided to just give it a try. What can I lose, right? I uploaded 60 images and only 12 got accepted major a blow but with many inspiring blogs from contributors helped me cope with the learning curve of stock photography.

Now that ive been staring at 99 it took me a while to select the picture since this is only going to happen once so i went to 42 street in the middle of the night and took this shot.

I would like to thank everyone for sharing their experiences and knowledge. Without you guys i would have never made it to 100 uploads. Also this is my first blog.

@Pondshots it took me about two weeks to decide which image to upload since this is the first milestone and it confirms that you are commited @ Elemak its too late for you JK once you have your first sale your hooked. Its one thing to see people take their time to look at your images and seeing that number go higher but once you have the first sale all you can think about is the next one and what images to load that will make you make more sales!! i wish all of you guys good luck
