My first unexpected sale

posted on 11th of march, 2017


Hello everyone! This is my first sale.

This blog is for those who are still waiting for their first sold photo. I never expected to sell this image. If you are one of those who belongs to that category, then maybe you are wondering "Will this even work?" or "What am I doing wrong?". I agree with those who say that patience is your friend. After 4 months of waiting, I finally made it.

The image is not so brilliant and neither so special. It's alright from a technical point of view, yet the composition could have been better. You see, if I did it, then you can do it, too. It's just a matter of luck, time and your ability to upload something with commercial value is another factor. Now I'm not sure how much did advertising help me here, but I consider it to be good practice.

Be patient and keep up the good work!
