Hey there (from North Florida)

Failjiro
Another new person here. My name's Laurence and I joined a few days ago, had some photos accepted, and wanted to say hi. This is my first time selling photos on a stock website. I'm not sure what to expect but I'm excited for putting my stuff out there.

You guys probably get this question all the time, but if anyone has any tips? I figured out that (putting up a ton of pics) and (keywording carefully) are things, but I wouldn't mind any other advice. I'm definitely working on the ton of pics part now that I've picked up a more quality lens than my old ones.

Hi, Failjiro! Welcome on board! Amazing images with birds! Of course that more quality lens will bring you more sales, but this is not a rule! Just keep uploading and keep shooting! Good luck!

Hi. Welcome. Don't know what Lenutaidi said about your lens, but as I can see on your equipment status, your lenses are more than sufficient for stock photography. Good luck!

Thanks you two! It's good to be here. Also Alvera, I think Lenutaidi was referring to what I said about the new lens I just got. My 75-300s are okay, but one has bad color fringing which is difficult to remove, the other not so great colors. The 50-150 takes just wonderful pictures in every way (and my macro is good too.) Between those 2 I think I can take some good pics for the site :)

Fringing is not so hard to remove if you shoot RAW and use the lens profile in a software like Lightroom or ACR. And about colors... a good concept photo with normal colors will bring significant more sales than a common subject with perfect colored pixels.
