Being Creative

posted on 29th of april, 2008

Being very new to Stock and after having quite a few of my first images rejected as 'not quite what we are looking for' I stayed away from uploading images that I thought were a little different just incase they weren't suitable for stock. However, searching Dreamstime I have seen so many brilliant and creative images so I thought I would upload a few of my slightly 'different' images to see how they did.

I was really pleased to see that this image had been accepted. I wasn't sure that it would be, due to the high contrast, but luckily it was. Now I will try and be more creative as well as looking out for images that seem to be obviously stock orientated. It is great that we can still be creative with our images and have them accepted.
