Goal: To Sell Images Not to Capture Reality

I love all aspects of photography especially learning new things and challenging myself to create new images.When I first began in photography about 25 years ago, it was very difficult to change or alter what you captured.I shot mainly slide films for publishing.Pretty much what you shot is what you got.There were no second chances.When I first started selling stock photos, I was to a small degree, still in this same mindset.I mean, I would occasionally clone out a distracting branch... continue reading

Thoughts about the DT Keymaster option

These are my very personal thoughts and experiences about DT's option to have images re-keyworded for the fee of $ 0,60 per image. Is this worth it or not ?Well, let's agree on that even the "greatest image at all" will not sell if no one notice it. Once a image passed the editors and is online at DT, we basically can consider this image as ok. However, this is no guaranty to sell any license..., not even a subscription-based one.So...regardless of expression or any commercial potential... continue reading
