My photo adventures

Monthly reflections – December 2015

Over the holidays I finally found/made the time to process photos from this summer and fall and submit them to Shutterstock, so I’m up to 1435 photos. I even took some time during a visit to Detroit to sneak in some photos as well…  So the new photos at Shutterstock included those Detroit photos, many many logos, some photos from around town, some from the trip through Flint, MI:

As for most popular photos, the logos as always have it beat, nice to see the puffin photo still hanging in there.  Hoping to get a Tesla supercharger zone with an actual car being charged, one of these days…

Good time to reflect on stock photo taking this year:

  • It was time for a final goodbye to those photos where I accidentally had the size set to small, which won’t work for my most profitable stock sites.  I realized that that was one reason I was putting off processing them, it was going to be too depressing to face all those “lost” photos…  Moving on…
  • A number of the logo photos I took while with family and friends were done too hurriedly and the composition or focus was off. Have to decide to either take the time to do it right, which would get in others’ way, or just let it go and not bother with such photos when I’m on vacation.
  • Some of the logo photos I took when I had tons of time and was  dedicated to stock photos were also out of focus – for the picky 100% focus demands of Shutterstock, I mean, the normal person would not notice.  I have to swallow my pride and use the monopod when I am in professional mode, no use taking stock photos that are not going to make it.

Feels great to be caught up on submitting photos to Shutterstock, now have to get those photos submitted to the other stock sites and of course… take more photos!

Best wishes on your photography adventures in 2016,

Susan
