Lately, I just made my 1st sale on Dreamstime, about a month after I uploaded my first pictures on the site. I just got 0.35$ richer! 35 cents is not much, but to know that someone found my picture and thought it could be useful in some way is just a great feeling. That is one reason why I chose to try to sell stock photos: to do something with my pictures more interesting than just leaving them inside my hard drive. Of course I hope in a few years I'll be able to get a nice little income with my portfolio, but until then, to see that I get views on my pictures and to see that the downloads started is only making me more impatient to go out there, shoot and post-process. I now have a goal when I carry my camera.
I can't wait to see what happens next!
Have a good day!
