Summer is coming :)

Yeah!!

About 7 months ago, I decided to give this microstockthing a try. Right after my first sale, I was hooked! Or maybe addicted is a better word for it ;o)

I started to upload and upload, getting lots of rejections but learning along the way. Now, my uploads have slowed down a bit. My archives are exhausted and I have become way more picky myself. My AR shows that too: from about 40% in the start to 80-90% in the last few months.

I am very happy to say I have just reached 200 sales, about 50% of my current portfoliosize. What I like, too, is that at this moment, 28% of my portfolio has been sold at least one time. Each first-time selling photo adds a little bit of extra exitement, adding one more picture with proven sale-potential.

But what I like most about the whole thing (off course next to seeing my earnings balance rise ;o) is the creative process that goes on in my mind almost 24/7. I get inspiration from so many things I see, and my mind is racing to think of nice ways to capture what I see or what I have thought of.

Now I hope the summer sun will bring me the energy to put all these idea's into practice!

Your blog is very inspiring and your photos are lovely. How does one go about becoming a contributor though, I have actually been a member here on dreamtime for years but have never actually gotten round to uploading any photos because I am unsure of the process!
