It is a fun and glorious time of year for me, our first crop of the year is coming into fruition and we are over run with strawberries.
I tend to take the approach of not checking the DT catalogue to see if what I am already photographing exists already and just try and produce technically the best photographs that I can and rely on trying to play with ideas everyday subjects.
My sales would indicate that this is not the best approach but unless I find a niche then I am certain that most areas will have a reasonable coverage so all I can do is submit the most creative and sound images as I can and rely on the DT review process to bump out the same ol' same ol'.
Over the last couple of weeks I have had 5 very different images of strawberries accepted with not a single one being rejected for being similar or being a too well covered subject.
Fingers crossed the buyers think the same way :)
