  1. Wow.. what jumped out at me is: These stock agencies “undermined assignment photographers who made thousands a day in the ‘60s. Suddenly you could buy these images for just a thousand bucks,” he says. But, you know, it's like that book, Who Moved My Cheese, you have to be on your game and anticipate where things are going. You can bitch and moan about it -- or you can put on your running shoes and get ahead of the game. For me -- I know how to take pictures. If I knew engineering or finance, I'd have other options, but it is what it is.
  2. Thank you! I didn't think stock agencies like black and white?
  3. This is a great point, and something I definitely think about.
  4. Thank you all so much! Y'all have given me a lot to think about! I mostly do portrait work, so stock is new to me. I love dramatic light and I shoot with a Canon so old it doesn't have any marks , so a lot of my work is noisy. Great point about the sensor. It definitely needs to be cleaned! The four currently in the set were accepted, in case it helps any other newbies. I dropped the highlights a bit on the pigs and the cow, and did a little noise reduction on the boy.
  5. Thanks! I ditched the girl jumping -- no amount of noise reduction is going to save that -- and lowered the highlights on the pigs so they weren't blown.
  6. Thank you! I guess I have to decide if it's easier to clean my walls or fix it in Photoshop! It's a lovely shot. I think you might need to leave this one out. As Mark said it is quite noisy and if you look at the little girl she isn't as sharp as say the little boy shaving. Don't be discouraged though. Looking at your Flickr stream it looks like there are plenty more candidates! Michael Thanks! I took the jumping girl out. There was just no way to clean up all the noise. Luckily, she'll be thrilled to do a reshoot!

  8. Thanks! Yes, they are my little wild ones. CC=constructive criticism. Good point about the noise. I'll see if I can get rid of some of that.

  10. Hi, everyone! I'm getting ready to submit my first four images, and I'd love some CC before I do so. Here's a link to the pictures: https://www.flickr.com/photos/candinamaria/sets/72157653959199135 Thanks!
