Pictures with news value

posted on 24th of march, 2014
Hi everybody,

Following question got stuck in my head? What about pictures with a certain news value? Will something that is all over the news be noticed on DT?

Ok, first let me clarify something: I live in Belgium, a small European country known for beer, wafels and chocolates so, ... pictures with a news value on some "big" topic is something rare. Secondly I'm no photojournalist but I might have something that is relevant to a current news item.
This year, lot's of events will take place in remembrance of the first world war (14-18) and this is a "hot" topic all over Belgium and France, and I guess in other countries as well. A few weeks ago I decided to take a couple of pictures relevant to WOI. I've visited Ypers, a town that is known for the battles that...

Hi Everybody,

Thank you all for the comments!

You guys mentioned a category concerning history, that would be a nice addition!

@gmargittai, I'm very realistic about this, ... I don't think my material is for giants like CNN and Reuters.

@ivanderbeisen, thank you for adding my pics. (Dank U he ;-) )

Also, I've been doing a lot of reading on the blogs and some people know what their sold pictures are used for. How do you find out? I often wonder what my pictures are used for, but I don't have a clue how to find out.

Happy Shooting everybody!

Hey Fellow Country Woman :)
I made a little collection on WWI (, I added yours of course) There are not that many pics on WWI here on DT, but I notice these pics sell quite okay. One of mine is even used for a novel (on WWI), so they have a good potential, especially if they are so good as yours :).
I fully agree with Perstock a history (sub-)category would be very useful: which might include historic objects, sites, memorial, sceneries, historic clothing,...

March: a milestone month

posted on 27th of march, 2014
Hi Everybody,

I wanted to thank you all for the encouragement and the tips that I've been receiving since I've joined DT.

As mentioned in the header, March is a milestone month for many different things.

So what happened during this magical month? ;-)

Well one picture got sold for a second time.
This was something new, I have some sales but I never sold the same picture twice, so that has put a smile on my face.

Also I've never sold as many pictures in one month. This month was a good month for me on DT. So far 5 sales during the month of March! I think, at this point, that's pretty good. Sales at the beginning of 2014 were very slow to non existing, but this month, I'm not complaining. I hope I'm not jinxing it but, to all of you who are starting and think...
