Just Beginning at Dreasmtime - Dreamstime

I'm just starting out at Dreamstime and it is my first microstock experience. I have nine images that have been accepted so far! I have been analyzing the images that have been accepted and rejected and I think it has already had a positive effect on my photography. I'm thinking about learning how to use electronic model and property releases. I feel a bit intimidated by the thought of approaching people with a release but I have people and pet images I would like to upload, so any advice on which apps are the best (and are accepted here) as well as the best way to approach people and what to offer them in return would be greatly appreciated. Also, is a pet considered to be property? If I upload images of my pet do I need a model or property release?

Welcome to DT. Its certainly a learning curve trying to understand why some photos are rejected and others are not.
Enjoy the ride

Thank you Cheese364. I was pleased to see that many of your wildlife and nature images have sold. That is where my heart is and I assumed that these subjects would not sell. I'll will have to go back through mine and see if any are worthy of uploading. One thing I like about uploading to dreamstime is that it has already begun to improve my photography. It looks like that will happen with my nature photography too. Thanks for your supportive message.

Nice images Tracey and welcome to Dreamstime! :) You will learn a lot as you upload and see what's accepted and rejected. Rejection comments from DT are very informative and helpful to all newbies. Everyone gets some rejections so don't loose heart, just keep uploading you will soon benefit, good luck:)

Thanks Lenutadi, I like your images. Do your "Boat Propeller" and "Christmas Time Holidays" images require property releases?

Thank you Fabio, Laura, Fallo,,Unter, and Lenutaidi! I will definitely keep uploading, I just have to learn as I go. I'm just having a little trouble with determining which images need a model or property release. What about, for example, the back of a person sitting in a lawn chair with her hand on her dog (which is looking in the same direction as the person, with its' back to me) at a wildflower festival? How about an image of little girl with a dog licking her in the local dog park?
