Think Tank

posted on 5th of june, 2011

Its often hard to think of good stock ideas. Perhaps we can inspire one another? What works, what doesn't. Lighting ideas, that make or break photos. Ideas that are lacking, designers feel free to chime in as well.

Micro stock has been around for awhile, and it seems that its harder to find original ideas. It seems more about improving and taking a better shot of the same idea. For example isolated objects. How do new photographers break into the industry, when the sites are flooded with similar ideas and objects. Chances are your photos get lost in the sea of photos.

Any suggestions or thoughts?

Try to stay away from objects that are heavily covered (i.e. an apple) unless your picture is the BEST apple ever done. Otherwise, try to be creative in expressing concepts or ideas that are universally used .. these tend to be received the best. Good luck, K-

thank you for contributing. i'm sure many will benefit from your tips. i'm new at this, and is greatly in need of some pointers. i just bought my camera last fall, and would love to eventually take some photography and graphic design courses. But for now i'm just learning about a new hobby.
