50 sold

After two years I've reached 50 sold photos of 850 accepted. Honestly, I expected more when I became a contributor. It is obvious that it takes far more effort for a good result. My involvement and expectations are now higher. I am sure that the reason for the high criteria is a growing influx of very good photographers, which for newcomers should be an additional challenge.      continue reading

Relative success assessment:)

Todays visit of DT pages made me once again happy - there were made some sales and also portfolio acceptance is getting slightly better for me by the time......but - as probably everyone - I´m always wondering, if it goes well or not.. Of course, it always can be better, making more sales, dedicate myself more to stock photos, etc. As usual:))There is coming quite important milestone for me in one month: I will have DT account for two years. In the beginnig, while heard abot the stock photography,... continue reading

Reached $10!

I have been an active contributor since past 8 months, especially since May. Reached $10 milestone yesterday!My initial phase was trying to create images which was technically correct. It took me around 3-4 months to get an approval ratio of 80%+ for each batch of upload I do.Next bigger challenge is to get them sold. Many times.. ;) My favorite fotographers are some of my inspiration.Overall, it has been an exciting journey and there is so much more to do - learning, capturing, creating... continue reading

The perfect camera - does it exist?

Lenses.When buying lenses I will often be looking for... continue reading

Exclusivity expectation

I wonder, is DT more strict to the exclusive contributors then non-exclusives? In other words, are there higher expectations for exclusive contents regarding quality? continue reading

A Matter of Expectations!

Hi all,I Just thought of sharing you this as I was working on a new project & of course DT photos were involved...Most of the times buyers imagine the use of the image before they download it! But the fact is that the photo doesn't always reach the final work for many reasons...1. The final client didn't like it! "Differences make us stronger :))"2. The photo needs much editing & it's easier to get another sometimes! "That doesn't make it ungood photo!"3. Changing of plans... Like... continue reading
