I have had quite a bit happen lately, and I wanted to share it with you all. I'm currently up to 58 sales. My last sale bumped my first image into Level 3.
Looking further back (soon after 50 sales), I received my first payment. It was the a hard-earned $100, considering it took a couple years to obtain! :) However, I'm glad to see my camera equipment doing something productive and profitable. I'm hoping the next check comes a little faster, but my sales have been slow and cheap lately. It's inevitable that these slow times will come, but it always seems to pick up again later.
In the meanwhile, though, I haven't been idle. I just launched a website, CyberStream.us
. I put some of my photos on there (I'm still filling the galleries). Any photos that are available on Dreamstime have a link to their respective pages. The rest are for your enjoyment. I'm excited because now I can share my photos regardless of whether they make it onto DT. For those of you who are interested, there is also my CyberStream blog
which is mainly technical web development articles, although I'll also post articles on photography, post-processing and graphics creation in Photoshop and Gimp.
I'd love to hear your critique of my website, or any other comments you might have!
