First Sale! :)

posted on 10th of november, 2011

So I've been on the site for almost a year. I'm not the best photographer out there but I'm still learning. I'm a college student with a passion for art. I recently came across my first sale on Dreamstime and I am beyond excited. Sure it's only .42 in my earnings but this is a huge accomplishment for me. I can't wait to add more photos to this amazing site and bring that earning to a higher number. Patience paid off. Now all I need to do is take more photos.

I'm super excited!

I've been uploading more images but the wait is killing me! I'm waiting on about 40 images and I'm hoping that at least 5 get accepted. I no 5 out of 40 doesn't seem like a lot but I want to set a reasonable goal. Anything extra will be a bonus. I currently have one download which pumped me up considering I only have 2 uploads. I hoping for a little more success now that I have started the Dreamstime Dream again. Wish me luck and best of luck to all who read this and are on Dreamstime.

I guess you are in the learning process, so don't upload too many images at the same time, since they may have the same trouble to be accepted. Good luck.

Excellent two photos that you have already been accepted! You will see that with so much patience you have no rejection, and I wish you very good luck and good sales!

I edit for the just the best few from a shoot. It certainly is hard to wait for acceptance of that "sure fire winner" you just took. Usually I'm excited about the next "sure fire winner" when the previous one gets accepted.
