summarize what sells in 25 words or less

Recommended Posts

"Have You Found..." = constant parade of licensed images

"Images Sold...." = another source of licensed images

 

Can anyone summarize what licenses in 25-30-35 words or less???

Maybe one version for editorial-unreleased style

& another version for commercial-concept style?

Give it a go, will you...?

The expected, the unexpected, and sometimes even the otherwise rejected.

Given two properly focused, composed, exposed and tagged images of a subject which buyers want, there are probably image attributes that make one more salable than the other. I wish I knew.

Instead of re-inventing the wheel, I trust that "sexy images" will be in demand for the foreseeable future.

They'll continue to sell, but the reasons for their sale will change.

one of the golden rules in stock photography is "shoot people walking towards the camera, not away" but there are exceptions!

I think there is  a market for every possible image . Good exposure with good context and of course the image needs to be seen so good captions and keywords

Lots of exceptions IME, especially these days. Sometimes even golden rules need to be broken. B)

Images that tell the story which buyers want to tell.

Jeff, why don't YOU tell us ..? :)

 

I was going to say that having people in the picture sells better .. but when I looked through my photos that sold last year .. about half of them don't have any people in them ...

Did.  See above.

Sadly, most answers circular-vague.

Too much of a challenge?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Could've been a newbie-go-to thread of a lifetime, but...

Here's what David Kilpatrick has to say on the subject, written a while ago, but very relevant.

 

Sad day when David left this forum.

I have a download of that on my computer somewhere from a few years ago. Must read it sometime, the sooner the better.:)
