    Your name gave you away - like mine does :)


    The same goes for desktop computers - my calibrator took some brightness away. But using the test sheet will help you for now, I think. To work on the calibration and post processing is a good place to start.


    - and begin shooting in RAW and edit your images in nearly dark surroundings.


    Bare klø på!! :)

    Jeg skyder i RAW hehe men tak for feedbacken det var noget af det mest brugbare!

    Mads, I think you have some learning to do before your images will sell here. That goes for post processing of images, tagging, choosing the correct licence and the necessary ticking of property / people, etc.


    I don't think your screen is calibrated - probably more brightness than it should have. (Often the case with uncalibrated laptops). That would make your images seem natural on your screen.


    Are you Danish? If so try this link, if you don't know anything about calibrators. https://fotografuddannelse.nu/test-din-skaerm/



    Yes im Danish and I don't know about my laptop and it's screen calibration thank you for mentioning that. I normally use my desktop computer tho where to me the colours seem to be perfect. I feel like its the whole "stock photo" part thats hard for me. There is so many new things to learn and I'm just starting out. Maybe I should wait a bit:)

    Post processing is a term which means basically, fixing up your photos a bit before uploading. Just sending your images as they came out of the camera isn't good enough. There are some cheap or free software which will help, but there is some learning to do!

    Yes I know that I have been a user of Photoshop for 4 years but that was mainly focused on photo manipulation. I just recently got into Lightroom. I'm still working on my style and such but thank you for the feedback. Appreciate it:)

    Your images are rather dark and depressing.  Watch out for blocked shadows.   I think Robert is suggesting that brighter images sell much better.

    Your images (one is enough) of the Jagermeister doesn't have that name as a tag.  Tags like "depth of field" or "Young photographer" seem useless.

    Think like a buyer.

    Okay thank you. You see I come from YouTube tagging so this is a whole new world for me. Really appreciate that you wanna take the time to answer my question appreciate it!

    Don't worry to much about getting that bar into the green. It doesn't seem to matter a lot, just attach decent accurate information and move on


    To be blunt, you might better spend your time getting up to speed with post processing. Starting with Tower bridge, there are more than a few really far too dark. No amount of keywording or even tagging is going to breath life into those

    Thank you for the answer:)


    Ehm I don't think I understand what you meant with the last bit are you talking about my photos or? Just confused sorry?:)

  6. Hi everyone.


    So this is kind of a follow up question to the one i did a couple months back about when you sold your first photo.


    In addition to this i want to ask you how you tag your photos and how important it really is to get it from the yellow bar to green. What i am asking is when you for example have 300 photos would you need to tag them all, all the way to green for them to sell. Or is it possible to still make a bit of money even though they are only tagged until yellow?


    Thank you:)
