Thankyou so much prateek for sharing your insight! For the last few days i have been reading all your blogs, and it helps me to keep on trying to stick to stock photography as i have experienced the same thing. Earlier my only two files were selected but after reading your blogs, my 7 more files have been selected. I hope for the sale soon. thanks! and keep on inspiring all of us the so called beginners! thanks again!
Bought one of the level 0 photos of Harshvardhan below. I felt like he could do with some encouragement. ;)
Lots of credits from my blogs...why not spend on people who want to see a sale real bad? Love this thing!
And thank you everyone. I'd probably not be writing as often if not for your encouraging comments and equally encouraging ports. :)

Thanks for writing this inspirational blog! Keep imagining and keep uploading, you are succeeding. "Leaf on Parched Earth" is a perfect stock photo, good concept, negative area for text, simple and clean composition. Great job!
I can relate to every word you said. I've learned to shrug off the rejections (that's how it feels sometimes), and move on. Your little picture is striking with an excellent use of contrast. Wished I'd thought of it. It just shows what you can do with a little imagination. It's probably your most powerful tool, ahead of a fancy camera. It's better to upgrade your camera as your skills improve, not the other way around. Keep up the good work!

Ive just read this and it blew my mind. Last night, I uploaded my first set of pictures. As we speak, they are still under investigation and I have no idea if they will be allowed. I thought I wasnt good enough, and not to sure if this is something I wanted to do. But you are so right. Its not the camera that makes the picture, its the few inches behind it.
