I have heard many of my friends saying, there is no more subject to shoot, but I don't think its not true. With one single subject you can create millions of images. And I think all the million images will be different from each other.
I have started to explore this option, my favorite subject is the Grand Mosque Abu Dhabi.
Whenever I visit that place around 160 kilometer from my place, it brings lots of peace. I go to that mosque, see people from around the world, from different community and different religion. When you interact with people from other religion it makes me feel proud, at least there are many who don't think that place of worship is terrorism. Well its not an religious blog or anything against anybody. Just wanted to highlight that this mosque is must visit place when you guys...
Well the latest blog from Serban Enache Refferal Program, motivated me to write this blog. You all read the blogs, but have you noticed an image in that blog. I saw the image and saw its in level 5, was surprised, then browsed the portfolio, of Icefields was more surprised, this simple concept had loads of sales.
Now if you look at these images, do you think the photographer used expensive camera, or any Adobe products. Well I checked he did use the camera, but this could have done even by scanning.
969 images and 8448 downloads, and top sellers are this photographers concept. Now someone commented on Ioana Grecu's blog that it was bad idea, look...
Hi Altaf, I agree with you a great concept can sell great without great equipment as long as the image conforms to the basic rules as Icefields mentions, that is getting the whites perfect, this was done by using some knowledge of good photo techniques (over exposure) and basic editing knowledge. These images would not have looked that much better using a top of the range camera, however I agree with Starblue and Maigi in some cases a good camera helps in other subject with more detail in the image.

Well today I experienced lighting fast review by DT, may be in just one hour my images were reviewed and approved. I uploaded them via FTP has there was issues uploading the regular way. I was about to write to support for priority review, but it got reviewed even before that.
So here are the images which got the fastest review for me in the history of two years in DT. More editorial images to come, watch out this space.
Ratmandude , to answer your question about time. as far as i know, if your editorials are time sensitive , you can always PM the editor to let them know. this usually will get your images reviewed very quickly... depending on how timely and sellable they are, of course.
2 days back I was fortunate to meet one of the upcoming Indian Actress during a press conference. Also I met the full team of latest Hindi Movie Crew, yet to upload those images.
In the press con, I was just concentrating on this beautiful actress, as my best friends son is a great fan of this actress, can you image my best friends son is just 13 yrs old and he loves this actress Deepika.
I experienced it was so easy to shoot these actress, as they are well experienced, and might have done thousands of photo-session. I noticed in the 30 minute press con this actress might have given more than 1000 different expressions, that's every 1.5 sec she had different facial expression. This made the job of photographer so easy, I have clicked around 150 images for just this actress. Here are few I uploaded....
Indeed it is always great to work with an experienced pro as that does make for better images in the end. But as you say the only negative [especially now days with digital] is that we tend to have a heavy finger on the shutter release … an then spend far more time sifting & sorting the results. I find that the easiest way is to do the sorting over a 3 day period … Marking the 1st, 2nd & third days best choices & then deleting the balance … Do you use Lightroom / or Bridge — if not check them out, as they do make the job of sorting quite a lot easier.
