I know that the world of photography is full of imagination & unreal things (wow yes I do!), this is one of the greatest things about it, no limits & none stop creativity! But when it comes to our daily life & professional work, we always love to find the photo that really represents the subject that we would like to cover! If we can mix the unreal with the real it would be nice to open a new imagination window for the target (client)! In some professions, a photo that represents the reality is a must, because of the laws & the rules that made to organize the companies & guarantee some safety measures!
So when you take a photo & you plan to sell it for these professions please pay attention to some details that might get the buyer choose another image & leave your image for a reason like lack of safety or missing object!
I'll give you some examples of what I mean...
1- A pharmacist or a lap doctor does not need to wear stethoscope!
Oh yes Brad some flags & symbols are incomplete :)) My surprise once was to find a cell phone with no zero! Only the 9 numbers! How about Oriental scripts like Arabic, Indian& Chinese shown the opposite! That happens & not easy to detect by non natives! :)
Yes, this is very important and difference betbeen "older times and now in microstocks. Five years ago people would be successful with images no matter what details could be wrong... now, there is so many images and choices that details can be a factor for deciding :-) great blog!
