Last week I started posting here at Dreamstime. I had less than 20 photos up at the time, and I began sorting through some of my old photos from my travel over the year.
Happily, this morning several more shots were approved. The photos were all "old" ones that I shot prior to ever thinking about trying a stock photography site. My uploads focused on my time in Colorado. And no, not everything I submitted made it, there were a fair amount of "duds".
Not complaining. Some shots I enjoy aren't suited to stock photos and I get it. But the turn downs were worth investigating! Sorry to say none of my shots from Hovenweep National Monument made it, so I'll re-examine them to see if there's anything that would work (the place is amazing).
The positive in all of this is simple. Your old photos might just fit in at a stock photography!
Of course, there will be more sorting this week. I have a year's worth of travel shots from my year long Airstream trip. I'm sure there are a few more hanging around my hard drive!
