I decided to write my very first DreamsTime blog after I got my first 100 online, so here's the one -- my key steps in DT:
I bought a NIKON D80 this year and happen to know my first microstock site DreamsTime in a BBS,
then I registered here on January 19, 2009.
At that time I have no idea what stock photography is like, so my acceptance ratio drops dramatically, I even didn't notice there is such a ratio in DT until I can only upload 3 images a day. And finally I got this picture -- my daughter -- approved
But I was not frustrated and kept playing with my new camera and DT, the effort was rewarded soon, I got one SALE on my 6th photo, which is only within 2 views.
It's amazing and at that day I know I will do this microstock thing for a very very long time.
So I bought books and study each websites I found, I store useful materials in my little territory: http://walklens.blogbus.com/
The following days are hard until I shoot animals in Beijing Zoo
I begin to have some feelings of DreamsTime.
I tried people and here's the first model I found in internet,
this generate one sale so far,
which is really good
Don't forget I even took a editorial picture of a celebrity.
And until yesterday, I got my first 100 online
and a good news: one of my photo will be used in a textbook
The days in DreamsTime really help me improve my skills in photography and I'm glad to see people acknowledge my pictures, so I'm now dreaming to become a professional, or at least semi-pro photographer.
Hope this dream become true in the near future.
Thank you all!
