Woohoo, NOW I’m a professional photographer !
At the beginning of last year I signed up at “dreamstime’ microstock website just in case I might one day get a really good photo. I uploaded a few shots from the Sydney Gay Mardi Gras, and then got discouraged by all the knockbacks from the editors…lighting too harsh, too high ISO, not in perfect focus, etc.
Then a few moths ago I tried again with some shots from this road trip, and what do you know, somebody recently bought one !

I would love to know why anybody wants a photo of a road sign ?
You need to have a huge portfolio with lots of sales to make any money with microstock though, I earned $0.42 for that sale ! But, it’s my first sale, and it’s given me a bit of encouragement to try uploading some more images from the trip.
Now, what can I spend that 42 cents on …….
