Finally at 50!

posted on 25th of september, 2012

I finally got my 50th image approved here on Dreamstime last night! Now I get to participate in the Assignments, which I am excited about, for a multitude of reasons: It gives my portfolio more exposure, it gets me out of my "comfort zone" of shooting, and it gives me something to focus my efforts on. Here is the image that put me into the 50 Zone:

thanks everyone! Thanks for the tip, Mike, I will do that! Yup, next goal is 100 images, then eventually, 1000! Then 5000. AHHHH!!!! OK, starting to panic a little, I will just focus on 100. :)

Congrats on the 50 images! Anybody that can get 50 images past the reviewers here at DT should be proud. You have some nice diversity in your portfolio, some really good stuff. To pull in more sales though, you may want to add in some photos that have a theme or concept. Example: the Barbequed Steaks shot you have, which is a great shot and will sell I'm sure, could have been expanded on by pulling back and taking extra shots of the person cooking those steaks. Then the theme would be "Man/woman barbequing steaks". So it's now about the act of cooking steaks instead of a steak photo. Just wanted to give you some stuff to think about, because you have some wonderful photography skills and your potential is unlimited. Happy shooting!! Mike
