My best day so far

posted on 2nd of august, 2011

Yesterday I had 3 sales!!! It is not much, but comparing to my previous results, it is really something:)
And the photos are totally different...It made mi think that maybe one day I will cross that magic border of 100 $:)
And these are photos:

I just wanted to thank you once again for a warm welcome - it is incredible, but since I started blogging (it means 3 days ago) I have had 8 sales! Thank you for encouragement and buyers for increasing interest in my work. I am so happy:)

What to do now?

posted on 3rd of august, 2011

It looks like I have already uploaded all of my best travel photos...

These were accepted today:© Ewamewa2 (Help) © Ewamewa2 (Help)

It is high time to decide what to shoot next. Decent isolated photos are still to difficult to me, so what are the other options for a beginner to get sales? Photos with model-release? Architecture? Food? I suppose that anything catching my eyes would do, but I have to start with something:)
I would appreciate your suggestions:)

In my opinion shoot more food, good job!!!

My humble opinion is to keep shooting as you're already doing and give reason to Mariaam! Good job and add an Italian saying:In bocca al lupo!!

What about travel pictures/editorials?

posted on 6th of august, 2011

I have many editiorial images in my portfolio as most of my pictures were taken during travels to India and it was impossible to ask for MR (at least to me that time:). Frankly speaking I thought they might be attractive for buyers (magazines, books etc.), but as time is passing by, I feel more and more discouraged since so far I have had only few editorial sales...

Shall I stop uploading editorials? I like most of these pictures very much, they are not going to bring money. Probably it is naive, but I am a little bit disappointed.
And here is my favorite (the one with a boy in orange), though still with no sale:

In June I spent few days in Portugal. The weather, surprisingly enough, was not very sunny and bright, but I managed to take some pictures:

Black and white photos

DT has just accepted my first B&W photo. I am very curious how it will manage here. Do you have any experience regarding B&W pictures? Are the buyers interested in that kind of photography?
Again, the photo was taken in India, New Delhi:)
Just n case, I also uploaded the same picture, but in color:

I have 2 B&W images because they look like the Ansel Adams type of photo, and this one has sell quite well. Is a good idea to have certain images in B&W.

small milestones - finally 100$ and new photos

posted on 22nd of august, 2011

I am so happy - finally I managed to collect 100$ though it took almost 13 months..I really hope it will take less time to obtain next 100 $ since now, as the beginning of August was quite good for me, but last week I had no sales :(
I am also trying to upload new photos taken in my hometown Krakow, Poland in order to differentiate a little bit my "Indian" portfolio.
Thank you all for support and, of course, to buyers!
And here are my last images:
Still, a little bit of India:
And summer in Krakow
