An auspicious day!


posted on 10th of april, 2008

Today I reached 100 uploads, and coincidently, also 10 sales. This has been a long and sometimes frustrating road! Along the way I have learned that stock photography is quite a different beast from travel or just "pretty" shots. My natural tendency towards subtle muted lighting isn't very compatible with stock apparently!

It is fitting that this 100th upload is a background shot of asbestos shingles. Backgrounds have been my most successful acceptance category, although not my most successful sales category.

The most successful sales category? Let's break it down, although I agree that analyzing 10 sales is probably not too valuable.

Out of 10 sales, 6 were vertical, 4 horizontal in format. I tend to prefer vertical formats when I shoot so that is no surprise.

4 have water in them somewhere. Water always makes me feel better!

2 are religious in nature. Somehow I end up in a lot of churches and graveyards...

5 are travel or destination shots. I do a lot of this!

My personal favorite of the entire "sold" group is this South Padre Island shot. Those are my shoes, and this is the place that I drop them when I get down to the beach for my morning walk.
