Into the 300s

posted on 13th of october, 2012

Its been 2 years since I joined Dreamstime, and after some struggle to get my photos approved, Ive finally reached my 300th photo online. Getting them up can be tough initially, but with perseverance, one can work their way up.

What Ive learned is
- look into where few have gone. Ive had a thought that maybe one could generate income from resources that many others may have access to, so I looked into oil palm. So far, it turns out to be the work horse out of my gallery.

- one mans trash is another mans gold. Collect and keep whatever that others discard that might be of photographic value. You'll never know what the photo of it might bring. (eg. I shot some pics of bacteria cultures that a friend of mine discarded, and it proved beneficial)

In short, I believe one requires perseverance despite the countless rejections to keep the numbers going up! Keep on shooting! :)

congratulations to your very interesting portfolio - I really like the oil palm collection - I actually didn't even know how they look like, how the grow etc - so with just looking through your pf I have gained some extra knowledge - reckon you should write more often a blog! Thanks!
