After being a member of Dreamstime for about a year and a half I haven't really put much effort into my portfolio, I keep planning to come back and make an effort but when I do take some photos I don't think they are technically good enough and I don't want to destroy my acceptance ratio.
I think a lot of time it is a lack of inspiration, I don't want to upload photos that there are hundreds of. I am pretty sure I won't be able to compete. I find that reading through other peoples blogs though gives you another insight into what can be done.
At the moment I am building a house, don't know why I didn't realise earlier but this can provide me with a whole lot of construction shots throughout the whole build and hopefully a few sales. It is not likely that I will get this opportunity again.
No doubt by the time the house is finished my portfolio will be full of house construction photos, as long as Dreamstime keeps accepting them. All of the above three were accepted with none rejected so it gives me hope for future submissions.
Finally I would like to thank Wisconsinart for his blogs. I find them informative while being humorous at the same time.
take photos of the unique aspects example 1.planety sun and a system of balls possible air or balls
chicken from the heap of grain (meaning a lot of food reflects the idea)
