First smartphone pic sale

posted on 18th of november, 2014

Today I got my first sale of a picture I had made with a Nokia lumia 1020 smartphone, it shows a rare Aesculapian snake resting on a branch.

During a few months I was only shooting and uploading with the 1020, many photos got rejected and I wondered if I would ever sell any. Meantime I went back to "normal " shooting with my SLR but the whole thing shows that it is indeed possible to sell photos made with a smartphone.

Thanks Phobic, the good thing is that as I approached the Aesculapian very slowly, she allowed me to come quite near, the Nokia Lumia 1020 produces huge images which can be cropped quite a lot without loosing to much quality.

It requires guts shooting this with a non-telephoto lens, omg amazing.

thanks Ctmphotog for your comments, I see you reacted very well when your camera broke down, you can attach photos (if they are online at DT) by using the two symbols above which look like an image with text around it. Good luck with your future work!
