My First Uploads

Hey,I'm new to this site, I'm new to stockphoto's all together.

Your First Sell

Good evening DT contributors and site perusers!I am a very recent entrant into the stock photography landscape, and just had my first sell.I'm sure it's just a fluke, and not the start of a tidal wave of downloads since few people besides me have an interest in bugs and water drops, but it's still a great feeling.I still shoot what I love, and will probably not stray from nature shots, although they don't pay the bills, so to speak.What were your first accepted/downloaded photos of?Were... continue reading
