Pleasant Surprise

posted on 3rd of june, 2010

I was pleasantly surprised this morning to discover that one of my editorial images had sold overnight. It was approved on June 1 and sold for 50 credits which added $25.37 to my account. I don't know if this is normal for an editorial image because this is my first sale of one. At any rate, I am happy about it. Here is the image that sold.

It shows a replica of a Civil War canon firing at a Memorial Day ceremony honoring fallen soldiers.

About me

I\'ve been involved in photography as a hobbyist for 40 years starting out with 35mm film cameras where nothing was automatic. I\'m glad I did because it forced me to learn the relationship between aperture, shutter, and ISO. Then I got my first point and shoot digital camera, I thought I\'d died and gone to heaven.
