Last week


posted on 1st of august, 2011

Last week was a slow week as I didnt have time for much photography, still managed to get some photos online and close in on my 50 uploads goal.

Last week stats:
5 uploads (38 total now)
0 sale (11 total now)
Have 7 photos waiting for approval at the moment.

Did some photography of signs during last week and managed to get most of the uploaded approved. Not sure how they could be used in commercial purpose but hopefully someone else knows. :)

I remember just about one month back when I finally reached my 50 - felt like never getting there and really I seemed to show that in my pictures because suddenly the rejection rate was extremely high - but then, when I had it things got so much smoother. I will also not get discouraged regarding the sales - if something sells I'm very happy but I'm focused in taking better photos and building up a nice portfolio

Thanks for all comments! I am not worried or discouraged about the sales, at the moment I am just trying to build a portfolio. Sales comes later. :)

Last summer was slow for me and this one is too. Don't get discouraged, it's cyclical. You showed great progress in just one week! Keep uploading and building your portfolio, and good things will happen. I think your blank signs could be good sellers-- they have lots of potential for use. Good luck to you and stay positive! :)

Goal reached!


posted on 8th of august, 2011

First of many goals reached! 50 images uploaded any I just applied for exclusivity.
Next goals to reach are:
- 100 uploads
- 25 sales
- 1 level 2 image
- >50% approval ratio

Below is image number 50, a simple but little bit odd brick wall I found in Estonia last summer. Maybe not my best piece of art but still the one which took me over the magic 50 limit. :)

Exclusive


posted on 13th of august, 2011

Finally Im a full exclusive dreamstime contributer! :)
Great feeling and great surprise that you got $0.20 for every photo you have got accepted this far which ment +$11.80 on my earnings!

Also tried for the first time ever to make some illustrations and upload but they all got rejected

edited by admin. please do not post rejection reasons here, nor discuss them on the message board or blog

Well its not easy to be a newbie. Maybe I try again but not sure on how to improve the illustrations though.

Also got two download this week, so downloads are improving slowly (not difficult to improve from zero though). :)

Below is the photos which were sold. Both animal photos for some reason. :)

posted on 22nd of august, 2011

5 uploads (65 total now)
0 sale (15 total now)

It was a slow week with only 5 new uploads online and no sales. However, for the first time ever I uploaded illustrations and also got some of them approved! In fact, all my 5 uploads were illustrations last week. Have a few more in the pipe waiting for approval. Its great to know that now I can contribute in two different ways, widening my portfolio even more.
