Following Up on Sorting Old Photos

posted on 24th of september, 2007

Last week I started posting here at Dreamstime. I had less than 20 photos up at the time, and I began sorting through some of my old photos from my travel over the year.

Happily, this morning several more shots were approved. The photos were all "old" ones that I shot prior to ever thinking about trying a stock photography site. My uploads focused on my time in Colorado. And no, not everything I submitted made it, there were a fair amount of "duds".

Not complaining. Some shots I enjoy aren't suited to stock photos and I get it. But the turn downs were worth investigating! Sorry to say none of my shots from Hovenweep National Monument made it, so I'll re-examine them to see if there's anything that would work (the place is amazing).

The positive in all of this is simple. Your old photos might just fit in at a stock photography!

Of course, there will be more sorting this week. I have a year's worth of travel shots from my year long Airstream trip. I'm sure there are a few more hanging around my hard drive!

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.
