Yes I can! I did reached $100 revenus. And yes I can still improve my portfolio.
Here is my own personnal little story:
I joined Dreamstime on May 4, 2010. I was not really active at the beginning because I was learning photo and testing others microstock sites.
2010 : 4 photos accepted, 12 rejected ; 0 sales
2011 : 17 photos accepted, 75 rejected ; 3 sales (not my best shots btw!)
After this lazy time I decided to focus on DT only and work harder to improve and increase my portfolio.
101 photos accepted, 117 rejected ; 10 sales
I finally became excluse and then : sales and earning increased significantly
. And so did my motivation!
150 photos accepted, 143 rejected ; 26 sales
My most downloaded photo is my own bathroom. It did not have to look very far away :-)
It is also the picture that brings me the more money.
I still have a lot to do to improve and increase my portfolio but now thinsg are easier: acceptance rate is higher and sales frequency is increasing.
At the end of the day, I must admit that I do not always understand what sells and what do not .
For example, I never sold those shots?!
