This is really a journey of discovery. I wouldn't call myself a top shelf photographer, but my photos just go to waste, being stored in various places and many have died senselessly with the death of a hard drive. Most stock photography sites want photos of people or buildings. I prefer nature. I hate worrying about staging people with silly props, getting paperwork signed, and worrying about all the various details when I can just go outside and find something interesting to share with others.
My goal is to find photos in my files that fit well here. If I notice voids...things I think should be here, but aren't, I may choose to take photos of those things and add them over time. As I've discovered working with websites, there can never really be too many pictures of a desired subject. Various colors and tones and styles all fit better in certain contexts. Get it wrong, and the whole page looks wrong.
Whether this is a success or not, at least I'll have learned something. Who knows, maybe it will make me a better photographer?
