First milestone completed: 50 photos online till the end of 2012!

posted on 1st of february, 2013

Rickshaw driver is my 50th accepted image.

I´ve been student of fine art photography and also worked as a photographer for few years. In September 2012 I decided to try out my luck with microstock photography.

I never considered myself as excellent photographer, but my education made me feel that I know how to do the stuff. But what happened – I found myself learning from beginnings and completely agreeing with many beginners, writing:"I was surprised, how different stock photography is. I had to learn so many things about photographic technique, quality etc."

And I must say, that from all the blogs in friendly Dreamstime community for me the most helpful were posts like "My first 100 photos online!", "My first salary", "3 years with Dreamstime". They help me keep uploading, even if my ratio sometimes drops as low as 30. They help me to realise, that beginnings are slow in microstock. They make me understand that there is still lot to learn.

So my biggest thanks belong to everyone, who is posting hers/his personal stories here and I decided to join, and will be very happy, if my posts will help anyone, too.

And now it´s time to make new goals:
-upload minimum 10 (good) photos a week
-100 photos online till 1st of April
-enter assignments
