  1. I agree about it being subjective! I too thought they were nicely atmospheric, but I see what Steve means too. As we don't know the preferences of potential buyers, maybe in cases like this it's a good idea to have some of each?
  2. Lovely photos! I'm quite new here myself. I understand that it's a good idea to include the latin names of plants and animals, and the location, in the captions.
  3. Thanks! That's very helpful. I did read a lot of info about model releases and stuff, and that's the impression I got, but I was concerned I might be doing something wrong. I think that unless I have permission it would be best to photograph people, rather than a person and/or not have them recognisable (as with the person holding the pencil on your map photos)?
  4. I know what you mean about waiting for people to get out of the way! Don't I need model release forms to photograph people?
  5. It's been pointed out that one of my images isn't sharp. I agree, despite it having passed QC. How can I remove it from my portfolio / take it off sale?
  6. It does indeed! Thanks for all the tips. You may have guessed I've been going through pictures I took for myself. I'm starting to realise that's not good enough and I need to start shooting with stock pictures in mind. (The huge rose garden isn't mine btw, but all the other photos so far uploaded are from mine. It's not a big garden – my greatest photographic skill is in making it look like a normal housing estate garden extends for half an acre!)
  7. Thank you. I'll add those details in the keywords and fix the error. I'm sure you're right about not having deselected an image before adding the wrong title. I got that wrong a couple of times – thought I'd fixed them all, but obviously not!
  8. I don't believe that is a geranium. Pretty sure it's a mallow (malva).
  9. Sorry for any confusion! I did post my own thread when I joined. The comment about the type of photos I'm uploading was intended as a response to BeeTee wondering what to concentrate on, rather than an intro to my efforts.
  10. Any comments or suggestions for giving my photos the best chance of being used gratefully received! https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/picturesbypatsy I haven't used many keywords for most of mine, because I think it's highly unlikely they'll show up in searches for anything as broad / vague as 'flowers' and have therefore concentrated on the plant names and anything I feel is reasonably specific to that image. Does that seem like the right approach?
