Ruins and Ancient Collection
Here's my newest and interesting collection of Historic ruins and architectures.
Any good travel shots of Historic places and also ancient arts will be applicable.
This category has great chances of sale and as I have researched on the popular stock photos on different sites, mostly well lit travel shots and sharp closeups are sold maximum. Buyers who are interested to publish a travel article on the place or about the history of same age or some educational columns with historic concept will look for such images. Also these got great values in tourism industry.
Key wording is as always very important so that prospective buyers can find your photos in the search results. The problem with a popular location is, people can find ample number of similar shots upon search. So to have a great sale you may try off beat locations or some unusual yet comfortable angles of same famous locations. Good processing can also help sometimes.
One more thing we can try is to capture some different concepts of the same location. For example, if I take a simple Tajmahal picture from the gate, what is so special that somebody has already not tried? But if you take the shot by also including the Yamuna river that flows beside it, yes your photo will be much different than hundreds of other artists. Similarly, if you are travelling in Cambodia, the most common shot one can think is the sunrise behind Angkor wat temple. The best among them gets the most sale and a decent photo may have no download at all. But what if you just enter the temple and get an interesting subject, include that/them in your shot and keep the temple in background. You do not have to wait much for your 1st download.
I just shared what I understood after a short research, you may also include your comments which can be helpful for the contributors and the buyers as well.
For this specific set I have already assembled some good and relevant photos, you may add yours from your stock. Please paste the photo in comment section and I will add it. By the way, I am not looking for graphics and illustrations here.
