Its been a month since I joined, and I'm already addicted. After submitting a small tester set of 6 of my best images (two rejected) and then jetting off to the egypt for a wonderful vacation, I was really pleasantly surprised to find that I had a sale on not one, but two of my images!
That was it! I had to check my page almost everyday to see what the ETR on my images are, my sales and how many views I've had.
Unfortunately, nothing has changed between the first two weeks and now except that I've managed to get a few more images up with a stack for review and also decreased my acceptance ratio. I can now say that after a long struggle last night, that I am now a master of the FTP upload though! Not the most user-friendly thing I've ever come across.
now sit with a dillema... I have very few stockworthy photos left on my pc (taking stock photographs has taken me on a really steep learning curve with my photography skills, and has made my recent attempts at photography WAY better than all my old snapshots!) and an addiction to feed. At the same time I have a completely unrelated degree to complete. This leaves me torn between getting out there and taking some quality pics or passing my exams.
Well, to continue in my great history of procrastination with my real work, I think I'll go out and take some photographs. It's way more fun than books.
Next months challenge...Asking friends: "PRETTY PLEASE will you sign this model release? Yes your photo can end up anywhere, no I cannot give you any financial compensation'
