My way to be simple


posted on 11th of november, 2012

This month is my third month with DT. I've got 6 sales totally. Five sales happened in this month. The images sold are very simple. I agree that simplicity sells. We all try to be simple. It is difficult. I figured out a way to do it. When I was taking pictures, I spent a little time looking at the elements before taking. I focused on the main subject and tried to illuminate the unimportant elements around it. I tried to have the background as clean as possible. One way to do it is to move around. Different angles result in different backgrounds. Move until you get what you want! The other way is that you must have a tight cropping. Spend a little time looking through your camera's view finder before clicking. Make sure the framing is clean. I don't have a high pixel camera and it is the cheapest Canon DSLR. If I didn't crop well when I was taking the pictures I couldn't crop them anymore in Photoshop. Here are my sold images. Let me know what you think!

They are all beautiful images with high sales potential, I like especially the second for his classical composition and well balanced and the third for its asymmetry of lines that converge on the lower left, the architectural details are sold for their use both specific and general, congratulations again!
Thank you, Concetta. I saw your pictures of Haiti. Were you working there?

Thank you, Concetta. Yes, Thanatonautii, different image needs different backgrounds. Thank you all!

Great images indeed! You are right about chasing the right angle, so you can see different backgrounds that you can choose for your subject. The only thing I don`t agree with it`s keeping simple the background, I think that that depend on the subject you are shooting...if it`s architectural details(like most of the picture you have sold so far) then you need a simple and clean background, but if you shoot - let`s say 2 yaks eating grass - then the best way(in my opinion) to put them in the good light is to have an astonishing background...like a big mountain covered in snow :)
