Just before I start this quick blog article sitting here safe in my home in England I want to send out my thoughts to those currently being affected by the earthquake and tsunami hitting Japan and surrounding areas. I really hope we do not see the great loss of life we did on Boxing Day 2004.
So I have hit a milestone this week with 500 pictures online. I only really started making an effort in April 2010 so managed to get them on over the last 11 months. Still nowhere near to being a prolific uploader but gaining knowledge and experience in this field.
So today I noticed on my statistics page that where all my previous months show 0.00% under database exposure that as of this month my database exposure has rocketed to 0.01%, I feel very humbled by this monumental achievement and feel great that I'm now even more exposed :-)
I should also see my 500 sale this month so will include this achievement here as well :-)
Again as the news is on th TV and I see what's happening in Japan it really does make all of this feel very insignificant.
So this is what I have achieved in 11 months and hope to try and increase this by 50% over the next year. I have started to shoot a few models and I'm enjoying this fields so would also like to share a couple of pictures of my latest works.
Happy snapping everyone.
P.S I'm finding it helps to keep practising your photoshop skills to run alongside you photography skill base.
Congrqrats on your exposure! That sounds a little twisted! Giggle I appreciate this since I found this blog by searching the web for help on how to get exposure on DT! I've just started uploading stock this year. I know it all starts out slow, but I've had 3 sell on ******** and have had so sales here yet, so I was wondering if it was because of this exposure thing on DT.
This makes me feel better! :)
Love these images! Love the image in the middle, I can see that expression being used for all sorts of things! Best wishes!
Congratulations! fine collection
Brad, good grief! I can`t believe that you are only at 0.03%. That`s a bit depressing for me, I`ll probably be 90 years old before I get there at the rate I`m going!
:) It is the trend that is most important. If you go to the statistics graph and turn off all lines except the database exposure you get a pretty useful graph that shows if you are still going up against the database. You just have to look past the tiny percentage numbers!
Thanks all and congrat's Gheburaseye but you will need a few more uploads to catch me as I'm at 522 now :-) Race you to a 1000 ;-)

Thanks everyone and Calyx22 yes it did take a while although it was still easier than I thought. Something I tried a few years ago with no luck but now using CS5 it's not that hard. :-)
