Dreamstime progress part 5

posted on 10th of february, 2012

It's been a wile but I finally reached 250 images. I have many more to process so getting to 275 will be easier if I can find the time to process them in Photoshop. Images are already made. :)

I shoot in the weekends and think of subjects, objects and ideas during the week. I write them down.

Isolated objects shots are the easiest way to get images accepted. They don't sell as good as images with people but in large amounts and with good subjects they bring a nice extra income together. Isolated objects gave me about 55 sales in total now. Retro objects work the best!

I have been uploading for 8 months now and February is going to be my best month I think. I have had my last payment on January 29 and I am already on $70.96. I am aiming to get $100 every 30 days so I hope to get to that point...

February is going to be a great month!!! Already $94 for February and its just half way down this month! I collected my 5th payment yesterday in 7.5 months of uploading images. Last payment was on January 29 so it took me 16 days to get to $100. I only have 250 images online so I am really pleased with the results! :) I really love Dreamstime!!! This motivates me so much more to get more images online!

It is defiantly still possible to get into stock! I have read articles that said if you want to make some good money you are to late since the market is full but I think I proved that is not true. I hope others can be motivated by this to!

I will go to 350 images before I write my second earnings blog and keep you up to date. Especially for the newbees that need some motivation! ;)

Good luck to...
