Each sale gives me hope

posted on 9th of july, 2010

I am a very amateur photographer and got into micro stock to try and improve my skills. Much to my surprise some of my pictures have been accepted by DT and some have even sold. With each acceptance and rejection I learn a little more and hopeful improve my skills.

Recently I went through a bit of a dry spell on sales and saw my desire to take pictures waning. With only 36 images in my portfolio I do not expect much but the other day I got my first level 2 image and July has turned out to be my BME. All of a sudden I got a new urge to take more pictures and reach my goal of 50 and become an exclusive DT photographer and start participating in the assignments.

With each new sale I can feel my confidence and my desire to grow my portfolio get stronger.

Your portfolio is great, you only need to upload as many images as you can and the sales will increase.
