Leap of Faith

 Finally after years of designing for other companies I have made the leap into photography for myself. I am extremely nervous and excited at the same time. Fear of the unknown is what has me most afraid. Nobody wants to fail, but I know that with failure comes knowledge. However, I can't say that I am looking forward to failure but when it happens I will embrace it and not turn away.I am usually one of those people that jumps into a pool instead of a slow toe test and gradual transition.... continue reading

Beginnings In Microstock I

As someone who is just taking my first tentative steps into the world of stock images, I am of course wondering what sort of images are most likely to be accepted.I would really prefer to not waste my time on images that really have no chance of being accepted due to the choice of subject.So what sort of images do appeal to micro-stock sites like started out by looking at the FAQ section of the site, but didn't find the explanation offered there particularly helpful at first.... continue reading

My beginnings

Well, It's 2 years since I first discovered the "STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY". I was just a beginner, I had a digital camera and a lot of illusion. I read on the net you can be paid for your pics, this was like a wow! for meI stared to upload in a lot of pages, and getting a lot lot of rejections, frustrations and impotence :(When I take a look back, my first photos, I find them very bad!! 2 years ago I didn't understand WHY my pics were rejected.I've been learning during the time, retouch... continue reading

And so with a bit of a bangI'll begin this blog.To give a little background on myself, DH is on disability so I don't work.Photography started out as a bit of a lark for me, but I don't really have the equipment to keep up with some of the others here on the site. But then I found CGI and discovered that I could do some really nice work with it.I'll try to include images to let you see how I've progressed in that area!Sandy continue reading
