Very few photographers can quit their regular jobs and just sell stock images. We all just making little money from here. If you wanted to make a little more money, then you had to work harder. If you had only 200 or 400 images online after 1 year or more, you shouldn't expect to make hundreds of dollars a month. Right? So, upload images to the maximum limits every week. That is what I do. This month is my 4th month selling images, and I have 472 images online now. I submitted my maximum of 70 images per week almost every week. Started in September, I had very few images I could use from the past. You know if you just started taking pictures, you have to take a lot. I made just a few dollars for that month. Then the second month I made nothing. But the third month I made about $75. This month, I will make about $100. I have sales almost every day now. I am happy with that. Don't even worry about what the so called "professional photographers" said that you needed higher quality images or no whine. Just do it!! Every one has a beginning. Every one has good images and "bad" images. Come on! Every one whine sometimes. Are you going to tell your son that you never cry? Are you going to tell you mom that you are a big boy now and no crying? It is all normal! BUT, if you don't work hard, then don't expect the rewards. I could see some members just enjoy taking images and share them with the others. That is fine! You can have whatever amount of images online, doesn't matter. I could see some members have only less than a hundred images online, but expecting very good sales. Please forget about that! No pain no gain!
What is high quality? Look at the picture on the left that I submitted and was accepted for the last assignment. I myself did not consider it good. I mean not on the art side. But so what? that was what I got at that moment. I don't have images from N years ago to choose from, like a lot of members. They picked the best from their stocks. I just started taking pictures a few months ago. I don't even know how to take an image with so beautiful lights like the winner of last assignment. So what? I admire them, but at the same time, I do what I can. Please, you all can do it if you wanted. Don't stop believing! You have very high quality images in your mind, you just need to make and present them!
