Take a Second Look

posted on 24th of august, 2011

Yesterday was a big day. I hit 1,000 sales. Interestingly, what made the difference in reaching this milestone more quickly is that over the past months I have re-looked at, and uploaded, several images I “passed” the first time around. Previously, I either did not appreciate the stock value of an image, or my Photoshop skills were such that I was unable to process the image the way I wanted. I have inserted some of these images into this blog—all have sold:)

I mention this as a reminder that not only is it worthwhile to take time out from uploading to improve upon your skill sets and your creative eye, but to look back and re-evaluate existing images (that have not been previously uploaded).

I wish you all continued successes as I enjoy celebrating this milestone, and thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm.

I would rather leave the decision to a future time--if someone notifies me that they have an interest in an SR-EL category on one of my images.

Why do you not have SR-EL category on any of your images?

Congratulations, I have been struggling with ideas for new photogrphs this month and am now longing for a change of season to freshen up the things I see each day but have revisited a few photographs and re edited and have had a couple of acceptances. It is a great idea :)
