  1. Hi, Having read a series of books on stock photography, I came across the frequently expressed idea, that your best selling photograph is often one, you yourself, regarded as the plainest, or least expected to sell. This was certainly the case with my best selling photograph, on Shutterstock. I was very cynical about even trying to recycle food waste in a compostable food bag, let alone take and publish a photograph of it. After finally being persuaded by my wife to donate one of my compost bins to the cause, I almost took the photograph to prove the justified reasons for my reluctance. How wrong I was. The bag is no longer with us. Ashes to ashes, compost bag to compost. All that said, the photograph is still selling steadily, 10 months later. Not a load of rubbish after all. Have any of you similar stories to share and tell? I'd love to hear from you as a beginner stock photographer, who wants to become an intermediate in the very near future. Best wishes, Peter Shaw https://www.shutterstock.com/imaghttps://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/this-initiative-avoids-plastic-being-used-1469706467e-photo/this-initiative-avoids-plastic-being-used-1469706467

  10. Shutterstock publishes monthly content guidelines that are likely to be requested in the near future. But it also means that competition for this content will increase. On the other hand, if your interests do not include follow of the best guidelines, but simply You wish to capture those photo moments that seem attractive, the content which buys the most from You can differ. In my experience there are two types of captures: in one case they buy something that is beautiful and refined, but in other cases, they buy something that is close to our daily life - sometimes it is not beautiful and not refined, but it just happens in life. But in any case, false artificialness does not promote sales.
  11. I took 540 photos of different plants and trees at the Sugarbrush Park in Waterloo, Ontario. I think once I go through all of them to find out which ones to pick for upload (for commercial use and not editorial), I think I'll have something like 270. Problem is, the photos I have consists of so many plants I can't really describe what they are. That's a problem, as commercial photos still need consistent descriptions and keywords for search engine optimization and so on. What is it I need to identify the types of plants I have to write down in my description and keywords? This is an example I have (and yes, there seems to be some areas of overexposure / underexposure I'll need to adjust using programs like paint.net). It's a bunch of trees that obscure the view of the sky above. There are so many species of trees aside from maple that I can't quite tell which is which. What kinds of trees do I need to mention in my description when I upload an edited version of this onto Shutterstock as a commercial photo? If you folks need to see the full resolution picture because this forum post picture is too small, please send me a message and I'll send it to you.
