Just pick up your camera and just let the idea find you.
I eat sleep and drink photography, so ideas are not my problem. My problem is not dreaming about photography when I am sleeping , lol. I suggest you just don't TRY too hard LOOKING for ideas to shoot. It's just like anything in our daily lives , you have to let it find you; the more you try , the less it appears. And also, even if you "succeed" in "trying to find ideas", your images will look faked, or too contrived.
Found images are always the most natural. It's as different as our left brain from our right brain ie analytical vs emotional. And for photography, the emotional must rule. Or else, it becomes as boring as arithmetic or accounting :) P.S. I come from an Accounting family, that's why I find it boring , lol. I am the black sheep of the family. The only poor one too, lmao.
I agree with Serdar about adding more 4 photos of 4 different photographers to have more exposure, visits & eventually sales! If you search the collections you would find many general medical collections, so if you can be more specific in the subject, it will make your collection more exposure! In your case you have many x-ray photos & only 4 non x-ray! If I were you I will make it more specific with X-RAY & add more 4 photos about the same subject! check this collection out x-rayed.
Walking and climbing in the mountains of the Alps is pure joy for my soul... if you like you can share these intense feelings with me... just have a look to the Mountaineering and Alpinism collection I just created...
Priority review is for news editorial photos like events or recent updates about something, also when a buyer request an image on the message board as Py2000 has mentioned! If you made that by mistake it might be reviewed fast or not! If you do it on purpose to have a fast review you might get banned! Cheers!
If you have an image that meets all requirements for one of the (urgent) photo requests, you can contact DT support and request a priority review. This is more for helping the buyers to meet their tight project deadlines for images that they can't find in existing online database.
I just had some spontaneous thoughts. Maybe they are nonsense in your eyes... but maybe not... therefore I would like to share them with you..
Thinking about success, money and sales based on my activity here on DT and in general I came to the conclusion that one should not look onto his earnings. Everybody who is successful with what he does is successful not because he is doing things because of the earning he may achieve but because he does it with fun, pleasure and passion. Fun, pleasure and passion are the keywords for doing something good (besides talent). Through fun, pleasure and passion one will be able to achieve good results - and good results are the key for success (on DT: sales).
Agrees with your opinion. At the same time, I thought that had the passion and pleasure possibly not to be also successful on DT, perhaps I did not have the enough time and the energy enjoy it. The life was very tired is very arid, lets us unconscious fall into the utility condition.
