DEMAND for Indian IMAGES around the world ?

Recommended Posts

My name is Karan and i am from India.

It's have been just a week, i started uploading on shutterstock.  My big question is that, "Do Indian images get sold on shutterstock? "  I mean, do advertisers around the world are demanding pictures of Indian models? 

I will be thankful for a genuine response.

I have some Indian models. Buyers who bought their images mostly came from India or Middle East. I think that Asia and Middle East are big markets for stock images...

 

Good Luck!

Thanks for the information, Alexander!

Have your model rummaging in a street market, handling foods, doing normal every day stuff, rather than portraits

Yes i am looking forward to that, also i am excited to explore. Thanks!

Take your models outside where there's interesting backgrounds of places in India.The harsh shadow caused by flash in your current images isn't good.

Yes that's a mistake of a newbie. ? haha

I guess this will not happen when i shoot outside. Thanks by the way!

Apparently!  Models?  Yes, Indian women are beautiful.  Agree with the others, take them out into the streets, doing things, walking, buying and selling food, looking at their smartphones, etc.

learn a bit about Posing also. Move her away from wall. very,Very amateurish. this way and using a strobe outside is a must called fill flash. I really would practice a Lot more before submitting. getting accepted used to mean something. It means nothing Now. Here is as simple as it gets. Model Under Umbrella. and a on camera flash. Get outside and show where you Live,the people , the sights and the smells. your really Not ready for indoor portraiture my friend.Background should be lit separately . it's not rocket science But must be studied and learned. I would delete all But one and start Over. Thats my advice.

At least meke sure that the background is white and there are no hard shadows from flash or lamps. You will never sell images with that lightning. As others suggest take the model out in the streets when you can’t set a lightning.

I agree, i am trying to shoot outdoor. Thanks for your response.

Greetings from one Indian to another! Have patience and click and upload more. I learned that it is a numbers game too after all. Keep uploading till you reach 500 and then let's talk again!
