    Microstock collapse?

    I strongly think that better times for microstock will come. When two,three or four things get in the right place : 1 ) Termination ( or end ) of Shutterstock's deal with facebook ( all those thievery web sites use same code - leakage from Shutterstock's API ( application programming interface ) trough FB) 2) When Shutterstock fix broken API 3) when Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) vote on a new copyright directive in early July, and hopefully accept that new " Copyright Directive " 4) When ALL microstock agencies raise content approval standard.

    Shooting Mascots/ Characters

    I don't think you'd need to bother with a model release of the person, if the face is completely covered. Don't know the answer to the other question - it would likely depend on how famous that character is.

  5. HI Antonio. You started a good portfolio, just keep uploading more photos on different topics. look around you, remember what holidays are coming, use friends as models if possible. Flowers and food images do sell, but the competition is huge, you have to be really good at it. I really liked your landscapes and images from Japan. I had a very slow start, now photos sell most days. Small amounts bring big smile Have a great day!

  9. Taking a look at your portfolio, John. It must be largely about subject and I've been shooting a lot of the wrong subjects.

    Agree, the attack on Rudy was completely unwarranted.

    That can happen when you question someone's integrity without knowing anything about them. He is right, coming to this forum is more and more a waste of time.

    Sorry man, the accusations against you were uncalled for, indeed. On the other hand, except for a better mastery of English grammar, your reply was so "rinderesque", I couldn't resist not to point it out! 😉 Peace!

    $1.50 Video Sale?!?!?!?!

    Sweet - just got to join the club with a $3.15 video download. WTH! Makes me wonder - do regular video sales still continue and this is just the occasional slap in the face??
  20. 2,666 pictures, 74 downloads last month in May. Ewwww. Guess I've shot a lot of stuff that people don't want. How do we KNOW what people want? Is it a trial-and-error guessing game, or is there some pre-ordained arbitrary technical way to research it BEFORE we go out shooting?
  21. Thanks for your kind attention. I am very glad that some folks like my staff. The light is natural, though I like to play in Photoshop... and get too far sometimes. I was also promised some old and new wood by a friend. Will see if it will be possible to use it for my photography.
  22. I am off topic now but I must ask: is this natural light on your food photos? Claude is right, they are all the same style but exactly that is what captured my attention. I find the clean, minimalist, elegant plating very beautiful, I could never accomplish that. Nice work. There is still time to diversify your style if you decide so.
  23. Thank you very much, Claude!☺️ But the example of thousands of monthly downloads with only 500 images shows, that others were obviously much better by finding out what buyers need. They are doing a great job.
