Not so long ago I've reached the milestone of 50 up-loads, which also was the beginning of this blog. The nice and encouraging comments on my first blog article gave me extra motivation and drive to understand stock photography. Thank you all for that!
So it's time to try to figure out a new part: COLLECTIONS!
Is it good a good idea to create collections? Can you benefit of participating and/or to them?
Are there things you should think about when you create collections? Do you want fellow photographers with pictures that have a lot of views and sales? Or do you group together with fellow photographers who, like you, are, new to this. Do you want to create large groups with a lot of variety or do you keep it small and very specific? Will this effect your number of views and will it increase the number of sales?
I will try to get an answer to this questions by creating a little experiment but I need your help. ;-)
I've created 4 collections and I would like to get them public by having 5 different photographers per collection. So whether you are new to Dreamstime or have sold a lot of pictures, let me know if you have pictures that you would like to add to one of the following collections:
COLLECITON: Animals of the World
COLLECTION: Colorful Sunsets
COLLECTION: Night Lights
COLLECTION: On safari
In a few weeks I hope I can write another blog with answers to my questions and my findings and thoughts on collections!
Thank you all for your input and let's keep shooting!
PS: Forgot to mention, if you find a picture in my portfolio that would be perfect for one of your collections, let me know! ;-)
