Sorting and searching: A Newbie's perspective

posted on 18th of september, 2007

Yesterday I posted for the first time on my blog here at Dreamstime. Nothing like having another blog (I have several blogs already). No complaints! I think writing up my experience as a new poster here at Dreamstime might be of help to other new members as well.

Since May of 2006 I've traveled the entire US with an Airstream Trailer. Coast to coast twice! That's a lot of miles. And more importantly that's a lot of photos.

Since I've decided to seriously give Dreamstime a "whirl" I decided to sort through the thousands and thousands of photos from the past year. Separating the wheat from the chaff. Talk about a daunting task!

As I've worked on my photography I know what should do well here, and I'm working on those types of shots now. But I know that buried in my portable hard drive are great shots from Colorado, Texas, New Mexico, Nevada, California, Montana, and more....Whew, I've been everywhere man, I've been everywhere!

After spending most of yesterday sorting it leads me to ask one question. Does anyone else go through their old "non-serious" shots looking for that gold nugget here and there? Or do they go forward with new photos and styles, leaving the old behind?

About me

I'm very new to stock photography, but not photography itself. I've shot scenes from an Appalachian Trail Hike in 2001, moose of the great north woods (loons too), and my travels across the US over 2006 in a 25 ft Airstream. A friend suggested trying Dreamstime and posting some of my latest photography. I sure hope you enjoy what I share here. If you're curious about photos I don't post here, stop by my website listed on my profile.
