I would recommend anyone like myself to give it a go just to see the difference. I have often struggled with which categories are best so it's very helpful. As I have recently passed the 700 uploads mark i will add a recent image.  continue reading

Categories & Keywords: Sometimes It's Best to Think Inside the Box P2

PART 2: THE SOLUTION FOR DOING SEO FOR IMAGES “I’m going to give you less than 30 seconds to draw a picture of a tree. Go.”Running a sketch meetup group, I prompted a café full of extremely creative artists with this, and do you know what happened? I got the same stuff back from each person: a lollipop broccoli tree. That was when I informed them how they could have drawn an evergreen tree, a bonsai, a branch, leaf, fruit, or seed, the roots at the bottom, a squirrel or owl in... continue reading

Categories & Keywords: Sometimes It's Best to Think Inside the Box

PART 1: THE PROBLEM WITH SEO FOR IMAGES  “What’s in the box?”This question is asked by Brad Pitt’s character, Detective David Mills, in the 1995 neo-noir crime thriller movie, Se7en. As viewers, we never get to see the answer, what was actually in the box. Although the criminal, John Doe (Kevin Spacey), tells us, it’s Mills’ wife’s head, he could have been lying. There are other clues to help us guess: the movie genre and rating, the pattern of deaths having to do with... continue reading

Hobby Photographer

Ever since I can remember I've been fascinated by images and creating them myself. It has been an on-again off-again relationship however. To be fully present to a moment there have been times when the camera felt like it demanded an attention that took me out of the 'picture' so to speak.Recently I've shifted away from taking the great panoramic images that tried to take in the whole and have found instead the 'close-up'. Getting up to a small common flower blooming in a field and capturing it'... continue reading

Got inspired, thank you!

I think that everybody needs inspiration from time to time. I live in Ukraine, last haft a year has been very tough here. I was exhausted emotionally, did not see any positive tendencies, did not find any source for inspiration to take pictures. But then I read Wisconsinart’s blog about earning $20,000 for 5 years of microstocking. That experience shows that if you are fascinated by the things you love and dedicate your time to it, it brings you back not only fun, but also earnings.The point... continue reading
